Cost Effective PROFINET / EtherNetIP Remote I/O Modules

Advantech IAG are pleased to announce the launch of ten ADAM-6100EI/PN I/O Modules designed to work directly with PLCs over EtherNet/IP and PROFINET.

In certain scenarios, these cost effective modules take the place of couplers when deploying I/O over a long distance and since they have dual Ethernet ports they can be daisy-chained every one hundred meters to collect data from and control the machines. One of the key advantages, and useful in a wide variety of scenarios, is ADAM-6100 series can be daisy- chained using Ethernet. This provides a cost effective solution to transmitting data over much longer distances than with PLCs.

For the benefit of central configuration across multiple machines, the ADAM-6100 using the ADAM.NET Utility, can create projects in L5K, a proprietary file format used by AB PLCs. EDS files, for the EtherNet/IP protocol, and GSD files for the PROFINET protocol formats are for use on a whole hostof third party PLCs.

To ensure the ADAM-6100 series and the data they carry are protected at all times from the harshness of the vagaries of a factory’s’ electrical supply, the ADAM-6100 series have 2,500 VDC isolation protection.

In various scenarios, signal decay and noise are prevented by placing ADAM-6100 AI modules near the sensors before sending data directly to the PLC which can be placed much further away and can receive data from multiple ADAMs in different locations. Because of their ease of installation, these ADAM modules are suitable for a wide range of environments.

The PROFINET Modules are: ADAM-6117PN- 8-ch Isolated AI; ADAM-6150PN-15-ch Isolated DI/O; ADAM-6151PN-16-ch Isolated DI; ADAM-6156PN-16-ch Isolated DO and ADAM-6160PN- 6-ch Relay Output.

The EtherNet/IP Modules are: ADAM-6117EI- 8-ch Isolated AI; ADAM-6150EI-15-ch Isolated DI/O; ADAM-6151EI-16-ch Isolated DI; ADAM-6156EI-16-ch Isolated DO and ADAM-6160EI-6-ch Relay Output.

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.

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 Engin…

IDEC Releases New Line of High Efficiency Power Supplies
