With the control unit NRGC-PN of Carlo Gavazzi can be controlled and monitored up to 32 chained RG_CM_N series solid state relays or contactors. It has two RJ45 ports for the Profinet interface. By means of the Profinet-IO communication protocol, the switching processes of the semiconductor relays can be controlled directly from the PLC and the real-time data from each semiconductor relay can be recorded.
The power specification from the PLC is converted in the control unit directly into controlled full-wave network synchronous. This relieves the PLC. The switching process is resolved to a half-wave. For an exact load control with maximum resolution is possible. The current values for current, voltage, frequency, power, energy consumption and operating hours are available in real time.
Diagnostic information includes power loss, load loss, load deviation, and overtemperature, a short circuit in the load circuit of the solid state relay, and the state of a solid state relay outside the set limits. Profinet control and data acquisition is suitable for all heating applications, especially for IR emitters where fast switching behavior and reliable and accurate temperature maintenance are critical to the quality of the final product. Typical applications include plastic injection molding machines, PET blow molding machines, thermoforming machines, semiconductor manufacturing machines and glassmaking machines.

Logimat Hall 1, Stand G21 Many companies are reluctant to modernize their facilities. There is never the right time for this. The weekends are best suited for this. With the right preparation for implementation, downtimes and machine downtimes can be reduced to a minimum. A digital twin of the Uniware intralogistics system from Unitechnik ensures planning security.
Cover story In the food industry, flexibility is becoming an increasingly important characteristic. At the same time, companies prefer security systems that offer operational efficiency and cost advantages in addition to the necessary security function. The machine for processing cold cuts from Weber Maschinenbau shows how these requirements can be implemented. They were secured with a modular safety controller from Schmersal. The service package included commissioning and validation by the Tec.nicum service division.
