The Schmersal group introduces for the first time a safety light curtain with integrated Bluetooth interface on the market. In which SLC440 / COM Bluetooth BLE is an optoelectronic security system that uses a Bluetooth interface to provide real-time status and diagnostic information about the state of the device to smartphones or tablets.

The Schmersal group demonstrates how practical safety solutions can help to improve production processes. A highlight at the Schmersal booth is the new one Safety Fieldbox SFB-PN-IRT-8M12-IOP, As a simple plug-and-play solution, it enables fast installation and fail-safe installation with minimal wiring.
Regardless of whether it is about machine tools, packaging machines or equipment for the production of food: There is less and less space available for safety technology and less and less time for wiring. Euchner therefore complements the product range with a compact one transponder coded door lock - especially for use on small and light doors and flaps.

Pepperl + Fuchs presented with "Safe PXV"The new generation of positioning systems: For the first time, it enables reliable absolute positioning to SIL 3 / PL e with just one sensor. The application possibilities and chances are manifold - not least in the automobile production.

The new fork and angle light barriers of the OP series from IFM Electronic put into operation. In contrast to conventional through-beam sensors eliminates the time-consuming adjustment of transmitter and receiver. Effortless adjustment is now done by potentiometer or via IO-Link. IO-Link can be used to set application-specific sensor modes and to easily adjust the switch-on and switch-off delay.
The networking of machines and systems for secure remote maintenance is only the beginning of digitization. New, disruptive business models or even improved maintenance options such as through predictive maintenance are made possible in the first place. At the same time, however, the risk of potential attacks on the networked production environment also increases because the machines and systems are now exposed to the same risks as all other networked IT systems. mdex has therefore specialized in appropriate protective measures:
