Logimat Hall 5, Stand D45
The Wireless division of Steute Technologies presents the latest version of the Wireless Network Solution "Nexy" on the Logimat 2020, The radio network was especially designed for Driverless transport systems (FTS) developed. For this purpose, it offers a function that is unique to date and that meets the energy requirements of the Driverless transport vehicles (FTF) lowers. Damti makes the radio network the entire AGV fleet more flexible.
The radio network is based on that developed by Steute Wireless LPWAN technology Swave.NET. Currently unused AGVs can be put into a “deep sleep mode”, where they consume minimal energy. If the AGVs are to be used again, they receive a "wake-up signal" via Nexy radio networks. It is connected again with a short reaction time and can be used productively by the AGVS management system. The low-power technology of the networks is used to control the sleep mode.
Networking for sleep mode
In practice, the AGVs do not have to be connected to a charging station in idle mode. In many cases, the user can also smaller battery choose without having to reduce the effective duration of use. At the same time, it is guaranteed that the vehicles can be put back into operation with the radio network at any time within a few seconds.
In the latest version, the connected radio network field devices receive new firmware updates “on air or by radio, if required. These updates are provided on the Sensor Bridge and distributed in the local radio network. The latest software version for the end devices is ensured without much effort. There are also new ones OPC UA Interface and a SAP connector for cross-platform data exchange.
Radio network with alarm function
These properties are particularly useful if the Nexy radio network is not only used for the wake-up function of AGVS, but also fulfills other tasks such as supplying materials via mobile, AGV-supported eKanban systems.
On Logimat 2020 Steute shows an example of a Nexy radio network application for supplying a mobile eKanban system.

Hannover Messe Hall 9, Stand D36 Sensors today often collect large amounts of data that are not processed by the control technology in many applications. With the new IO-Link data splitter E43406 from IFM Electronic, valuable information can be generated from this data. The data splitter thus allows retrofitting of existing plants and machines in terms of Industry 4.0.
Logimat Hall 4, Stand B65 Turck has presented a compact 10 port managed Ethernet switch with IP67 protection. With the robust TBEN-L-SE-M2 switches, camera applications, for example, can be significantly accelerated due to the highest data rates up to 1 Gigabit / s. A high-speed link-up function supports fast tool changes in less than 150 ms for minimal cycle times in the robot. The Ethernet switch can be installed decentrally directly in the field.
Hannover Messe Hall 9, Booth D58 Specialist article Too often, the functioning of the fieldbus and industrial network equate users with the sufficiently high quality of data communication. Although this is imperative for stable machine and plant operation, awareness of the need for monitoring for predictive condition monitoring in industrial automation is slowly becoming established. With a current survey among webinar participants and its annual Vortex Report, Indu-Sol shows the need to catch up. “Once every two years or every 30.000 km” are the recommendations of motorists for the intervals of a regular inspection. Although these dates are based on many years of experience,...

Hannover Messe Hall 12, Booth D03, Harting's specialist article at the Hannover Messe 2020 is based on the motto of the industrial show “Industrial Transformation”. In this focus, the technology group under the claim "All for Ethernet" ahead and sets new standards for the industrial network for the networking of technical devices, machines and systems for the 75th anniversary. Other highlights will include new connector solutions, the Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) Industrial Partner Network and other industrial interfaces and configurators.
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.
EKS Engel FOS GmbH & Co. KG, Wenden, and Etic Telecom GmbH, Baden-Baden will work together as part of a sales partnership from 2020. Her focus is on holistic Local Aea Network, short LAN and Wide Area Network, short WAN solutions. The products of the two companies complement each other perfectly to offer a common portfolio of LANs and WANs. They are used in factory automation and process automation as well as in the energy sector and transportation.
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 systems and machines can be easily implemented and 4G replaced. The use cases also go far beyond factory automation and the number will increase in 2020.
