Ethernet-IO-modules

Ethernet-IO-modules allow an efficient plant design The new Ethernet IO modules from Pepperl+Fuchs support all common Ethernet protocols, such as Profinet, Ethernet IP and EtherCAT. The L-encoded M12 plug, compliant with the power-connection concept newly defined by the PNO, supplies the connected units with currents of up to 16 A with no additional installation needs. The modules can be used independently of the control panel and permit autonomous applications. They clear the way for distributed signal transfer within the meaning of Industrie 4.0. The multiprotocol feature permits standardization in the machine where different module types were previously required. Change between protocols by simply using a rotary selector switch. The IP address for Ethernet IP can also be directly set. The integrated web server allows for complete parameterization in addition to addressing, as well as the retrieval of status and diagnostic information via PC. www.pepperl-fuchs.com background: fotolia GigE machine vision camera – compact and powerful IDS presents the second generation of the GigE uEye CP machine vision camera. The CMOS camera has been completely redeveloped and designed without compromise for classic machine vision applications. Measuring just 29 x 29 x 29 mm, it is much more compact than the preceding model but offers even better performance. Its enhanced features include CMOS sensors from Sony, ON Semiconductor, e2v and CMOSIS, as well as full GigE speed, single-cable operation up to a length of 100 meters via Power-over-Ethernet (PoE), and screw-on connectors. In addition, the GigE camera will also be available with support for the GigE Vision standard or with the proven IDS Software Suite. The camera series includes models with 0.5 to 6.4 megapixel resolution and with monochrome or color sensors. www.ids-imaging.de Advanced thermal imaging cameras HANNOVER MESSE The new Exx-Series of advanced thermal imaging cameras has been designed for electrical, mechanical, and building applications: the Flir E75, E85, and E95. The series features intelligent interchangeable lenses, laserassisted autofocus modes and area measurement functionality, improvements to Flir’s MSX imaging technology, and a larger, more vibrant 4-inch touchscreen. The company developed a new range of compact intelligent, interchangeable lenses that the camera automatically recognizes and calibrates, eliminating the need for manual calibration. In conjunction with Flir Tools, the E75, E85, and E95 are the first Exx cameras to offer UltraMax, an embedded, super-resolution process that improves effective resolution by four times - up to 645,888 pixels - and thermal sensitivity by up to 50 %. A simplified user interface delivers faster, more intuitive operation, and coupled with enhanced Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Meterlink connectivity, archiving and report generation has never been easier. www.flir.com 50 WORLD OF INDUSTRIES
