Redundant Controller brings high availability to small applications.

October 30, 2013

Powered by real-time Ethernet POWERLINK protocol, redundancy solution for X20 control systems is based on standard X20 controllers that can be reconfigured at any time with features that reduce downtime using Automation Studio software development environment. One controller provides active control, while second controller runs in background in standby mode. All network functions are monitored continuously, and switching time is 2 task cycles (within milliseconds). Read More

Virtual Safety Software features scalable design.

October 9, 2013

Programmed using SafeDESIGNER editor in Automation Studio, SafeLOGIC-X covers everything from safe I/O and drive technology to integrated diagnostics, safe line integration, and safe machine options. Application runs on safe input module, and all parameter and configuration management is handled on standard controller. As safe input and output modules are added to SafeLOGIC safety controller, existing programming code can be reused without having to make changes. Read More

CASE Software enhances program design efficiency.

March 11, 2013

Helping create clearly structured software architecture, Automation Studio 4 provides automated functions, true-to-life architecture modeling, version control, support for shared projects, and object-oriented programming. Project modularization lets individual projects be split up into manageable pieces, and hardware configuration is handled by arranging photorealistic images of components. Automatic application of necessary configuration parameters conserves time and prevents errors. Read More

Vibration Analysis Module increases machine availability.

December 7, 2012

With onboard intelligence for vibration analysis, X20CM4810 module can make continuous condition monitoring integral feature in every machine. Results can be used to determine exactly which parts, if any, require maintenance. At 2 slots wide, module provides 4 input channels with IEPE interface for querying acceleration sensors. Interface supplies sensors with power, samples their signals, and processes them internally to generate 70+ condition parameters for direct transfer to CPU. Read More

Test & Measuring Instruments, Green & Clean

Energy Measurement Module combines diversity, precision.

November 26, 2012

In addition to voltages, X20AP can measure currents, frequencies, and reactive components on all phases. Current and voltage measurements up to 31st harmonic promote precision, while sensitivity and fourth channel make unit suited for measuring leakage currents on neutral line. Measurement value curves recorded by module can help in by providing basis for optimizing traverse paths within machine. Variants for connecting 20 mA, 1 A, and 5 A transformers are available. Read More
