PInrdoudsutcryt News 47 Programmable industrial controller Opto 22: The new groov EPIC system combines guaranteed-for-life I/O, real-time control, local and remote HMI, and industrial/IT data exchange in a compact, industrial package. The system is targeting process control, machine control, OEM, manufacturing, SCADA/RTU, building and facilities, and IIoT applications. Commercial, retail, warehousing, and distribution customers will also find that the system opens a wide variety of new options for tracking, storing, and visualizing data—all essential to developing more efficient operations. Of particular interest to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) will be optional access to the Linux operating system through secure shell (SSH). This access, along with toolchains and interpreters for Java, C/C++, Python, JavaScript/Node.js, and more, allows OEM developers to execute their own custom developed applications on this ruggedized, edge processing control system. Network management software Belden: The enhanced capabilities of Industrial HiVision 7.1 allow industrial manufacturers to optimize the use of available power by using a Power over Ethernet (PoE) Wizard. The IIoT is driving smaller and smaller devices typically powered by PoE. As a result, fewer switches are required to meet needs, and less energy is wasted leading to a lower total cost of ownership. The new software enables users to configure hundreds of SNMP-enabled industrial devices simultaneously, from any manufacturer, both during commissioning and live operation. Industrial HiVision is in use worldwide in the power and utility, transportation, water/ wastewater and factory automation industries. HiVision 7.1 improves functionality with the addition of new features for PoE detection and management, as well as added support for configuring emerging technologies like TSN. Strengthening the already robust monitoring and management capabilities of previous versions, the result is improved availability and security for industrial networks. IoT-ready solution Lanner: The LEC-2137 is an I/O rich, IoT-ready industrial box PC powered by Intel Celeron N3350 or Atom x7-E3950 (codenamed Apollo Lake). The LEC-2137 is a thin client gateway that can be configured with either a total of 6 Ethernet ports or 2 Ethernet ports and 4 PoE ports. It comes with 1 COM port, 1 HDMI (3840 x 2160), 1 VGA (1600 x 1200), dual USB 3.0 and dual USB 2.0 ports, 1 2.5” HDD/SSD drive bay and -20°C ~ 55°C operating temperature range, making it the ideal multi-port communication gateway for both machine vision and physical security. Software-based thin client computing has now become ubiquitous in machine vision and physical security, so too have the hardware appliances deployed at manufacturing facilities and various commerce/enterprise locations. IEEE 1588 Ethernet switches Siemens: The The Ruggedcom RSG907R and the RSG909R compact Gigabit IEEE 1588 compatible Ethernet switches support HSR and PRP according to the IEC 62439-3 standard. At a time when the electric power industry worldwide is rapidly transitioning to fully digital systems, such as digital substations, the switches help to avoid revenue loss by mitigating the risk of communication disruptions and downtime with a redundant fault tolerant network supporting high bandwidth. In addition to the seamless redundancy Ethernet networking features, the device is equipped with redundant power supply inputs for additional reliability. With IEEE 1588 precision timing support, the RSG907R and RSG909R reduce capital expenses and maintenance costs by combining precision 4.2018 industrial ethernet book timing information and data communications onto a single network. Both devices come in a compact size, with integrated DIN rail mount and front facing interfaces to allow easy installation in space limited areas. Industrial wireless access point Mencom: Industrial Wireless Access Points provide a reliable, robust, rugged and costeffective solution to industrial applications that require a wireless connectivity. They are suitable for a wide array of applications and withstand harsh conditions typically found in the harsh manufacturing environment. In addition, a state of the art encryption and the ability to create a virtual network among wireless clients are integrated so that communications between clients can be easily and intuitively controlled while imposing restrictions on data and excluding malware can be done at the same time. Equipped with a powerful 2 x2 MIMO Radio interface supporting IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n, 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz selectable bands, built-in DIN-Rail mount, these Wireless Access Points run in multiple modes such as access point (AP) mode, wireless distribution bridge (WDS) mode or access point client operation mode. Mencom's Wireless Access Point uses a wireless network manager to ensure the delivery of optimum performance in the network. WPS and Wi-Fi Direct technology options are also available to connect Wi-Fi easier and deliver an industry-wide peer-to-peer solution based on broadly deployed Wi-Fi technologies. These devices are designed to be fully operational between -20 and +60°C.
