Can a PanelView Plus 6 or 7 support USB speakers for audio output? Our latest Tech Files post answers the question.
HMS Industrial Networks presents a new family of network connectivity products based on the Anybus technology, which enables ControlLogix and CompactLogix controllers on EtherNet/IP to seamlessly communicate with Modbus, PROFIBUS, DF1 and serial devices.
Resilient Ethernet Protocol (REP) is a technology implemented on Cisco distribution switches and Cisco IE and Rockwell Automation Stratix IES. REP is designed to provide fast network and application convergence in case of a media or network failure, without a negative impact on most network applications.
Device Level Ring (DLR) is an EtherNet/IP protocol that is defined by the Open DeviceNet Vendors’ Association (ODVA). DLR provides a means to detect, manage, and recover from single faults in a ring-based network.
July 2019 User Group will be an update on Industrial Networking and a look at Device Level Ring (DLR) implementation and architectures.
Current Transformers, or CTs, are important elements in power monitoring and protective relaying applications. A CT will step-down higher line currents to a safe level (typically 0-5 A) for use in control panels. But there is an inherent danger when using CTs. Extreme caution must be taken to […]
Machine designers are required to design safety into more industrial systems than ever. To help them design more easily and meet their other application requirements, Rockwell Automation has seven new safety modules across three I/O platforms. This offers designers both local and distributed safety I/O options and a wide range of performance and connectivity attributes to help improve compliance and machine performance.
Version 12 of Connected Components Workbench (CCW) software includes a new feature, the Micro800 Simulator. The Micro800 Simulator provides a software application to emulate the behavior of a Micro850 48-point controller. It allows experimentation and debugging of application code in a controlled environment. Micro800 Simulator supports project version […]
ztC Edge is a zero-touch, fully virtualized and self-protecting computing platform, specifically designed for industrial edge environments. With built-in remote management and user-installable in less than an hour, ztC Edge significantly reduces the IT burden for virtualized computing at the edge. Its self-protecting and self-monitoring features help reduce unplanned downtime and ensure availability of business-critical industrial applications.
With M2Web, users benefit from secure browser-based mobile access to KPI’s from remote machines via Ewon Flexy products, enabling users to connect to e.g. a remote HMI, web server, PC, panels and more. M2Web does not require any software installation – the user simply needs to open a standard browser. In M2Web, the information is presented in a modern responsive graphical interface, and a map view has been implemented to enable a global perspective of installed machines in the field.
