On the way to Industry 4.0 with Pfannenberg's innovative Thermal Management Solutions

Pfannenberg will unveil its Thermal Management Solution with cloud-based remote monitoring at Europe’s leading exhibition for electric automation, SPS IPC Drives in Nuremberg, Germany.

Communication is provided by a compact device with an integrated SIM card, which receives the relevant data from the connected cooling units via Modbus - a Building Management Protocol - and transmits it to the cloud over a secure mobile telecommunication link without any need for access to the company's IT infrastructure.

The solution developed in cooperation with T-Systems enables users or systems to retrieve status data, diagnostic information and alarm notifications from the cooling units, live and independent of location, through a web browser, or to integrate the data directly into their applications.

From November 24-26th,  visitors will have the opportunity to see a working model on display at Stand #339 in Hall 5, and discuss this innovative Thermal Management solution with experts from Pfannenberg to learn more about its functionality and deployment options.

“The smart factory is the wave of the future. As an innovative medium-size company with over 190 patents worldwide, making our cooling solutions fit for networked products is a natural choice”, says Andreas Pfannenberg, Managing Director of the Pfannenberg Group. “With the premium controllers of the newest generation, our cooling units are able to provide a wealth of relevant data. Thanks to the cloud solution, employees in production management, the service department or the maintenance department, as well as higher-level monitoring systems, receive information about possible malfunctions or imminent failures promptly, wherever they are. This enables them to respond quickly before a serious incident occurs, which helps increase machine availability.”

The Thermal Management demo system on display at the trade show will consist of a two-compartment switchgear cabinet with a semi-recessed DTI cooling unit on one side and a semi-recessed PWI series Air to Water Heat Exchanger on the other side, each equipped with a premium controller. There are three heaters in each cabinet compartments, which can be turned on individually at the front using door-mounted switches to simulate heat loads. On an external monitor visitors will be able to observe how the Enclosure Cooling Unit reacts to changes in the heat load or when opening the cabinet door.

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

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

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.
