throughout their lifespan of 50,000 hours or more. A feature of the range is the built-in automatic temperature protection. Above 50˚C, the light dims to manage heat and protect product lifetime. WLS27 LED strip lights are optimal for

Featuring a durable aluminium internal structure and shatterproof, UV-stabilised, polycarbonate shell, WLS27 LED strip lights from Turck Banner are suitable for harsh indoor and outdoor applications and resist exposure to high-pressure, high-temperature water, solvents, cutting oils and a broad range of chemicals. The smooth, no-crevice design enables thorough high-pressure cleansing, vital in food and beverage applications. A redundant sealing method prevents

water ingress to achieve IEC IP66, IP67, and IP69K ratings. These cost-effective LED light strips will provide vivid, low- power, maintenance-free illumination

use where laminar airflow is a requirement. To satisfy diverse applications, the WLS27 is available in eight lengths from 145 to 1,130mm. They are available as either stand-alone, or as cascade models that can be ‘daisy- chained’ together for a continuous length of illumination, with a minimum of wiring. WLS27 LED strip lights are offered with

flexible mounting options, allowing users to deploy them in areas and applications where other lights may not fit. Two colours in one device make them suitable for mobile vehicle, machine status, and vision lighting applications.

A Tough addition to SICK’s flagship safety light curtain family, the deTec4 Prime is an extra- rugged, high- performance light curtain that is easy to install and use. It is also suitable for harsh environments and exceptionally wide machines. With the SICK deTec4 Prime, it is claimed to be easier than ever to achieve hazardous and access point safety protection up to PLe/SIL3. It is suitable for a wide variety of applications such as machine tool operation; automotive production; warehousing and logistics and FMCG goods handling and packaging. With integrated laser alignment for

simple installation, the SICK deTec4 Prime provides full end-to-end protection with no blind zones and a wide scanning range up to 21m. With integral dip switches for simple

in-situ configuration, the deTec4 Prime is quick and easy to commission without the need for a computer. Cascading up to three deTec4 Prime safety light curtains minimises wiring complexity and reduces the number of safety inputs in the control cabinet. The coded light beam option prevents optical interference between devices in side-by-side applications.

PRODUCTS READY FOR IOT AND INDUSTRIE 4.0 The smart factory introduces

All applications with Beckhoff PC control technology are essentially ready for Industrie 4.0 today. The new specific IoT and Industrie 4.0 products from Beckhoff are said to make using these features even easier. The complete process control mappings which can be generated from the control technology make it easy for the user to assess the various machines and systems. Extensive Industrie 4.0 features are available at the click of a button. All of this is made possible by a variety of new products. TwinCAT Analytics provide the foundation for predictive maintenance and machine optimisation.

numerous requirements regarding online and offline state analysis, predictive maintenance, pattern recognition, machine optimisation, and long-term data archiving. This requires data capture to be as continuous as possible and in sync with the processing cycle. That is exactly why Beckhoff developed TwinCAT Analytics software. All process data can be provided as needed, either locally or as a cloud-based solution on a server, whether on your own corporate network or in a public cloud. With its new TwinCAT IoT

solution, Beckhoff supports standardised protocols for cloud


Emerson Process Management, working with MYNAH Technologies, has expanded customers’ network possibilities and application options by adding PROFINET protocol abilities to the DeltaV distributed control system (DCS) - further opening plant floor integration to DeltaV users.

The addition of PROFINET is claimed to save DeltaV users time and effort by enabling direct connection between the DeltaV DCS and plant floor devices such as motor control centres, variable speed drives, and PLCs in process automation businesses. Taking advantage of PROFINET, users do not need to use a protocol converter to connect to the system. PROFINET joins a wide range of DeltaV Ethernet-based protocols, such as Modbus/TCP and Ethernet/IP. The new capability is easily added to the system via both M-series and S-series Virtual I/O Module 2 (VIM2) interfaces. The PROFINET driver supports simplex VIM2 modules deployed with standard commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) network equipment.

In response to market demand for connectors for increasingly smaller, decentralised control and drive technology, HARTING has introduced har-flex THR variants designed to meet the demands of harsh industrial conditions. These new connectors also achieve new levels of industrial-grade miniaturisation without decreasing reliability. Connectors employed in electronics act as an interface between

two printed circuit boards and must therefore be able to bear high mechanical stress. This is precisely what HARTING has focussed on in the development of the har-flex THR variants. These new connectors provide a miniaturised contact pitch of 1.27mm while also ensuring an extremely stable connection to the PCB. THR stands for ‘through hole reflow’ and describes the termination technology using binders attached

laterally (soldering studs). This makes them extremely well suited to demanding mechanical applications which previously required larger connectors. The new har-flex THR variants make use of tape and reel packaging and reflow soldering to allow easy integration into automatic assembly processes.
