Controls & Controllers

Control Panels allow safe data exchange over bus system.

October 21, 2014

Intended for swing arm systems, openSAFETY Control Panels require only bus and power connection so they can be placed where needed without cable harnesses. Users can choose different display sizes and ratios, as well as various touch technologies. Number and arrangement of buttons, switches, and E-stop buttons are also configurable. Available in housings rated up to IP65, control panels render hard wiring of E-stop, operating mode, and start buttons obsolete. Read More

Mechanical Power Transmission

Helical Gearboxes provide smooth operation.

July 22, 2014

Available in 5 sizes with gear ratios from i=3 to i=100, Series 8GP70 with shaft output and Series 8GF70 with drive flange are IP65-rated with optimized synchronization characteristics and low noise level at high speeds. Units handle high axial and radial forces and offer option for reducing backlash to less than 1 arcminute. With gearboxes, woodworking machines can produce smooth surfaces with minimal chatter, while printing machines can render consistent printed image. Read More

I/O Modules with reACTION Technology minimize cycle times.

June 19, 2014

Programs created in function block editor are executed directly on I/O modules from X20 and X67 series, and function block libraries can be stored in software modules via dynamic updates. Able to bring cycle times in industrial automation down to 1 µsec, reACTION technology allows time-critical subprocesses to be managed, using standard hardware, within requirements of IEC 61131 while reducing load on controller and optimizing performance to match demands.

Controls & Controllers

Controllers with Integrated I/O support unlimited expansion.

June 10, 2014

As standard, X20 comes with 32 built-in digital and analog I/O channels and x86 processor. Integrated POWERLINK, standard Ethernet, CAN, RS232, and USB interfaces are also available. Compact controllers have integrated I/O, and I/O modules can be connected locally or remotely using cables. Controllers are available with 200 and 400 MHz CPU frequencies and, depending on variant, up to 256 MB RAM and 16 kB nonvolatile onboard RAM. Built-in flash drive with up to 4 GB is also available.

Servo Drives compensate for errors in advance.

May 15, 2014

ACOPOS servo drives are available with repetitive control, which improves accuracy of production processes with stationary disturbances by using predictive following error compensation. Embedded in standard speed control loop, repetitive control adjusts torque setpoint to reduce periodic portions in speed or following error. By undergoing constant learning process, algorithm ensures changes to load profile do not have any effect on drive. Read More


Software Development Tool offers expanded numeric functions.

May 7, 2014

With SafeDESIGNER v3.1, users can process and compare safe INT and DINT signals in addition to linking them mathematically to basic arithmetic operations. Safety-oriented function blocks are also available for converting INT and DINT values in either direction. In process control applications, SafeDESIGNER is suited for safe processing of pressure, temperature, and flow signals. This expansion rounds off full numeric range of functions for Automation Studio 4 development and configuration tool. Read More

HART Modules feature 2 inputs and 2 outputs.

March 6, 2014

Part of X20 Series, HART Input and Output Modules use real-time Ethernet POWERLINK to transfer HART data supplied by sensors and actuators directly to controller. To evaluate data, controller forwards information via process bus to maintenance stations with FDT containers. HART devices are configured with TCP/IP communication DTM, which scans network and detects hardware tree. DTM server on controller provides read/write access to all information regarding HART field devices for asset monitoring. Read More

Panel PCs offer multi-touch functionality.

February 25, 2014

Supporting full range of processors up to quad-core Core™ i7, Panel PC 900 Series features projected capacitive touchscreen with edge-to-edge glass surface. Displays range from 15.6–24 in. with full HD resolution. Multi-touch displays allow zooming with 2 fingers or quickly paging forward with swipe gestures. Many variants in Panel PC 900 Series can be operated without fans. Used together with SSDs and/or CFast cards, these systems completely eliminate rotating components. Read More
