The Wireless division of Steute Technologies is presenting the latest version of the "Nexy" radio network solution at Logimat 2020. The radio network was developed especially for driverless transport systems (AGVs). For this purpose, it offers a function that is unique to date and that reduces the energy requirements of automated guided vehicles (AGVs). Damti makes the radio network the entire AGV fleet more flexible.
Hannover Messe Hall 17, Stand D34 At the initiative of Trumpf, around 2020 industrial companies, including Pepperl + Fuchs, will be presenting the new "Omlox" location technology standard at the Hannover Messe 60. Using the new standard, various localization technologies can be linked together. Examples are ultra-wideband (UWB), RFID, 5G or GPS. The companies are responding to the increasing use of location solutions in industrial production.
Keysight Technologies has announced the launch of new machine learning capabilities in Ixia's active Hawkeye network monitoring platform. By adding machine learning, Keysight helps companies reduce downtime and improve network uptime. It can quickly predict, identify and correct network anomalies.
Specialist articles Without communication via the 5G network, no factory of the future or is the 4G network still sufficient? After all, 5G allows peak data rates of up to 10 Gbit / s, latency times of less than 1 ms, availability of over 99,999% and is also extremely energy-saving. As a verified partner of Ericsson, HMS Industrial Networks offers the hardware required for factory automation. With the manufacturer's router, switch or gateway, the integration of 5G communication in...
Profibus + Profinet International (PI) advocated OPC UA early on as an open, cross-manufacturer standard for machine-machine communication. However, to round off the technology, there was previously no standard for fail-safe communication at this level. This solves the specification "OPC Unified Architecture Part 15: Safety", a joint development by the OPC Foundation and PI. The technical work is now complete.
HMS Networks introduces a new security platform for the "Anybus Compactcom" product family that supports certificate management and TLS encryption. All automation devices that use the Compactcom IIoT modules benefit from even more secure communication between the production level and the cloud.
SPS Hall 7A, Stand 330 Pepperl + Fuchs is the first company to offer IO-Link Masters with an OPC UA interface, thus enabling the path to seamless, transparent and seamless communication from the lowest field level to the cloud.
SPS Hall 7, Booth 250 Turck is expanding its interface portfolio with the compact, single-channel IMXK series for control boxes with shallow depth, as are often used in modular machines or mobile applications. With a depth of only 77 mm, the IMXK series is 35 percent shorter than classic interface devices of the latest design. In terms of accuracy and speed under real conditions, the IMXK are at the top of comparable larger device types.
