Every year Brammer Buck & Hickman sells more than 100 million bearings from the largest, most comprehensive bear- ings range and stock. It’s product knowledge and


technical support is second to none, and advice is available to all customers at any time from its expert design and engi- neering specialists. The new microsite, which has been launched under the Rubix brand, comprehensively details all must know bearings-based knowledge under three distinct product pages: Case Studies, Resources and Industries. Filed under Case Studies, here customers can peruse through a number of added value projects divided up by both industry and bearing typ e. Under Resources, customers have the opportunity to extend their bearings knowledge through several rich media sources including that of pictures and videos.

SIG200 needs only one cable to communicate simultaneously via the fieldbus with the machine controller and with higher-level enterprise or web-based systems.


Data can be integrated transparently into both common PLC environments and higher-level systems. The SIG200’s built-in logic and remote intelligence make it quick and easy for engineers to create and run distributed sensor applications, even independently of the PLC.


“The beauty of the SIG200 is that it offers all the Industry 4.0 benefits of setting up a system using an IO-Link Master, PLC and sensors. Alternatively, it opens a second route, where you can by-pass the PLC and create your own data gathering system linking straight to the cloud,” explains David Hannaby, SICK’s UK Product Manager for Presence Detection.


“Engineers will find it easy to configure and visualise an automation solution with the SIG200,” Hannaby contin- ues: “The SOPAS logic editor has a great drag and drop function so you can visualise all the connected sensor and actuator signals and measured values without the need for special software knowledge. programming time, effort and cost.


It saves a huge amount of


“Process control functions, for example activating a mechanical pusher to reject products from a conveyor sys- tem, can be configured and set to operate autonomously without the need for the PLC. So, the communication loa d in the fieldbus is reduced at the same time. ”


The SICK SIG200 makes it easy to solve simple application tasks using binary switching signals or measured val- ues from IO-Link sensors and actuators without an additional control. Meanwhile diagnostics, process parameters, and status information from IO-Link devices e.g. for condition monitoring or predictive maint accessed both at the machine and company level.

The new level and pressure devices have a universal adapter system of process fittings that provide the flexibility needed to keep installation and spares inventory costs low. A unique ultra-bright, eye-catching, 360° illuminated status display ring ensures visibility, safety and process reliability. Its status colours can be custom-selected easily seen from any direction – even in bright daylight. Some of the new pressure switch/sensors feature displays and keypads with dual easy-read text and VDMA menu, ensuring the right set up every time and easy understanding of pressure measurement or switch status.


Another prominent feature of the instruments is their communication capabilities. They feature Bluetooth wireless, which offers another option for safe remote and easy set up or function check of devices without the need for a PC, cables or connectors. Just download the free, simple (and award-winning) VEGATOOLS App. Also available is the IO-Link protocol, this ensures compatibility, intelligent data transfer and simple, fast system integration.
