Communication: News for digitization and networking

PI1219Has changed early Profibus + Profinet International (PI) for OPC UA 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.

Turck be extended Interface Portfolio with the compact, single-channel IMXK range of shallow depth switches commonly used in modular machines or mobile applications. With just 77 mm depth, the IMXK range 35 is percent shorter than classic interface devices of the latest design. In terms of accuracy and speed in real world conditions, the IMXK are at the forefront of comparable larger device types.
