Skkynet Teams with Red Lion Controls to Expand Secure IIoT Services

Skkynet Cloud Systems, Inc. (“Skkynet” or “the Company”) (OTCQB: SKKY), a global leader in real-time cloud information systems, announces a new collaboration with Red Lion Controls that provides industrial automation engineers and managers with highly secure, real—time communication that seamlessly integrates with the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). The collaboration employs Skkynet’s Embedded Toolkit (ETK) in combination with Red Lion’s Sixnet® series IndustrialPro® cellular routers and Data Station Plus protocol converters. Together, the system supports over 300 industrial protocols to link devices to Skkynet’s SkkyHub™ for secure, bidirectional, real-time communication.

“There are a number of major hurdles to becoming IIoT-ready, most importantly security and multi-protocol communication.” said Paul Thomas, President of Skkynet. “A primary objective of this collaboration was to integrate our ETK on Red Lion’s IndustrialPro cellular routers, thereby providing secure connectivity to SkkyHub, with no open firewall ports, VPN or programming required. The end result is secure, real-time monitoring, control, networking, and big data collection at a far lower total cost of ownership (TCO).”

“Becoming IIoT-ready can be a daunting task for many organizations with legacy devices that do not speak the same language.” said Brian Rosema, director of IIoT strategy for Red Lion Controls. “With support for more than 300 industrial protocols, our Data Station Plus protocol converters and rugged cellular routers work in tandem with SkkyHub to connect devices, thereby improving process visibility and pushing control to the edge. The result is a robust, fully integrated IIoT solution that connects virtually any device to any other device or user.”

Skkynet’s SkkyHub service provides secure, end-to-end bidirectional connectivity between the Sixnet IndustrialPro series routers and end users at all levels, from operators and plant engineers to managers, analysts, and customers. The service is capable of handling over 50.000 data changes per second per client, at speeds just a few milliseconds over Internet latency. Secure by design, it requires no VPN, no open firewall ports, no special programming, and no additional hardware.

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications. The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications. “We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner E

IDEC Releases New Line of High Efficiency Power Supplies

IDEC Corporation announces the PS5R-V line of DIN-rail power supplies, offering their customers high-efficiency in a compact form factor at competitive prices. These power supplies suit a wide range of needs in the industrial marketplace, and carry all of the required certifications necessary for use in these demanding applications. This next generation of the industry standard PS5R power supply family has updated features and specifications to meet current and future needs. The PS5R-V line of power supplies includes 10W, 15W, 30W, 60W and 120W versions, with additional versions coming soon. These power supplies have a very compact form factor with overall dimensions reduced by up to 25% from previous generations. The reduced form factors combine with DIN-rail mounting to free up valuable control panel space and reduce installation costs. Operating temperature ranges up to -25 to +75 degrees C offer more versatility. These extended operating temperature ranges often allow these p

TURCK M8 CORDSETS WITH 100 PERCENT SHIELDING OPTION PROTECT AGAINST EMI/RFI

TURCK is now offering the option to completely shield M8 picofast ® cordsets by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nut. This provides a cost-effective and reliable connection with 100 percent cable and connector shielding, which protects against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference. The 3 and 4-pin cordsets are available with flexlife ® PVC or PUR jacketed cable. All connectors deliver IEC IP 67 protection. The M8 picofast line, like most TURCK cordsets, provides male or female, straight and right angle connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. Fully encapsulated mating receptacles are also offered, completing the system.
