Product News manufacturing sites are facing challenges of achieving more diffi cult processing at higher productivity rates. The NC Integrated controller provides both NC and PLC functionality and synchronizes NC processes and others at high speed. This will help signifi cantly increase the production capacity of the entire machine. NC setting and G-Code programming are added to the Sysmac Studio which provides a true Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for configuration, programming, monitoring, and 3D simulations. Function Blocks for NC make program structure simple, even for synchronization between NC process and others, cutting development time. Unmanaged 8-port Gigabit switches WAGO: Two new industrial unmanaged 8 port gigabit switches have been added to its growing switch portfolio. Each of the RJ-45 ports support 10/100/1000Mbps speeds with autonegotiation and auto-MDI-/MDX detection. Housed in compact enclosures of 50 mm, these devices reduce the footprint of the control cabinet. They each have an operating voltage of 9 to 57 VDC and two LEDs per port for fl exible and easy-to-use operations. The 852-1112 style industrial switch is DIN rail mounted and is powered with 24VDC.The 852-1102 industrial switch offers dual power feeds for redundant power capabilities as well as operations over a wide voltage range and a monitoring alarm relay. Differentiators between the two are as follows: The 852-1112 ECO switch provides the following feature set: single power supply connections and operating temperatures from -32°to 140°F. The 852-1102 standard switch offers: redundant power supply connections, and alarm relay, and operating temperature from -40°to 158°F. Both switches are offered at competitive prices, allowing for fl exibility in deciding which works best for a given application. Industrial IoT edge gateway Robustel: Modular industrial IoT edge gateways support various communication protocols to facilitate fast application development. The MEG5000 is fl exible, easy to confi gure and manage. It features three scalable cards that support a variety of interfaces to meet the changing demands of applications in the industrial Industrial Internet of Thing (IIoT). Thanks to quick deployment and simple customization the gateway can be tailored to virtually any industrial requirement. Through edge computing, the MEG5000 gateway is able to process data right at the network edge and in real time. It can therefore collect, analyze and act on data more effi ciently, and it supports data optimization which is vital in the IIoT. When transferring large amounts of data to the cloud over limited bandwidth, latency might occur. MEG5000 supports up to 1300 Mbps Wi-Fi speed ensuring that its edge computing power helps to reduce data uploads by acting like a local, edge-based cloud service tool. Unmanaged Gigabit PoE+ switches Antaira Technologies: The LNP-C500G series is a five-port industrial gigabit PoE+ unmanaged Ethernet switch embedded with 4*10/100/1000Tx PoE+ (30W/Port) ports and 1*10/100/1000Tx RJ45 port. The small form factor of this metal casing switch is 50% smaller than the LNP-0500G series which allows for more versatile implementations. It is designed to fulfi ll industrial applications that have small space requirements and need high bandwidth capabilities such as security, ITS transportation, power/utility, and water wastewater treatment plants. This series also works well in any other outdoor application that is susceptible to extreme ambient weather conditions. The LNP-C500G series provides a 48~55VDC redundant power input with power polarity reverse and overload current protections. These switches also have high electrical fast transient (EFT), surge protection (2,000 VDC), and electrostatic discharge (ESD) (6,000 VDC) protection to prevent against any unregulated voltage. It can be mounted on Din-rail and wall mountable orientations. Condition monitoring for mobile B&R: The modular X90 control and I/O system can now be equipped with condition monitoring functions. Problems can be detected in their early stages and corrected before they result in unplanned downtime. Condition-based predictive maintenance can maximize machine availability and save the cost of outages and unplanned service calls. The X90 module allows operators to continuously monitor the status of mobile equipment. The results help determine exactly which components require maintenance and when. Typical applications include continuous monitoring of rotating machine components such as hydraulic assemblies, belts, gears and motors. The processed sensor data is also available for further use in the application. Protocol gateway devices Advantech: The company has extended its protocol gateway product line with the introduction of two new EKI-1221IEIMB & EKI-1221PNMB Protocol Gateway Series for protocol conversion. These new protocol gateway devices support protocol conversion from Modbus TCP to EtherNet/IP, and Modbus TCP to PROFINET. 46 industrial ethernet book 11.2017
