P CoMoNeo –

The Next Generation O

n Stand B013 at PDM 2016, Kistler Instruments will be launching CoMoNeo,

the direct

descendant of the cavity pressure monitoring system launched in 2006 but with enhanced capability to meet the needs of today’s injection moulding industry. Easily configured to meet specific user needs with up to 32 inputs for piezoelectric cavity pressure sensors, 16 inputs for temperature measurement and 4 analogue voltage channels for machine signals, such as screw position and machine pressure, moves automated production process monitoring into a whole new dimension. The ComoNeo is the system of choice for any injection moulding company that aims to optimize monitoring and analysis of the moulding process to permanently cut costs by increasing productivity and removing defects at the earliest stage in the production process.

BASIS™ Mass Flow Controllers T

ucson, Arizona (29 April, 2016) – Alicat Scientific has added a new line of mass flow controllers specifically for original equipment manufacture and process integration. BASIS™ is Alicat’s smallest footprint instrument, providing fast, accurate control of gas flow rates in an economical, easy- to-integrate package. BASIS is ideal for use in OEM gas analysers, automated gas mixing on process lines, and anywhere basic mass flow- only control is required.

All BASIS units are ready to control process flows at full accuracy in just

70 ms. A 100 ms control response enables BASIS to react in real time to upstream fluctuations. NIST-traceable accuracy is +/-(1.5% of the reading + 0.5% full-scale).

BASIS is available with the following multi-gas calibrations: Air, Ar, CO2, N2, O2, N2O (selectable over RS-485); He, H2 are also available in single-gas units. Dual communications – RS-485 Serial and 0-Vdc analogue – mean BASIS can be built into a range of end-user products.

5.7“ & 7“ Intelligent TFT display with sound M

MS Electronic has available a 5.7” and 7” Intelligent TFT graphic display EA eDIPTFT57-A 640x480 pixel and eDIPTFT70- A 800x480 pixel LED backlit display, built-in intelligence and innovative user-friendly features. Resistive or capacitive touch-screen option.

These intelligent display reduce development time and cost. It provides the ideal platform for development of interactive controls. For example, a virtual keyboard, analogue rotary instrument, bar graphs can be generated on the screen with just a few simple commands. Sounds ranging from simple clicks, notes or jingles acting as warning or status messages. The on-board memory stores images, animations and macro programs. The unit features two analogue inputs in addition to 8 digital inputs and 8 digital outputs. On-board interface is serial, I2C and SPI or USB, RS232, RS485 with level converter. Display can be securely fitted with DIP (or ZIF) connector and stylish front panel bezel.

Fibre optic link service from OMC Matched links ensure reliable communication in

noisy and hazardous environments

MC, the pioneer in optoelectronics, has announced that its fibre optic links are an ideal solution for industrial automation installers that are widely adopting Smart Factory/Industry 4.0 working practices which rely on the collection and feedback of large amounts of equipment performance data which is then used to fine-tune production processes and increase efficiency. Comments OMC’s Commercial Director, William Heath: “Industrial machinery and smart factory environments are often noisy and challenging environments for electrical signals, so optical transmission is often more appropriate. If high voltage, magnetic fields or noisy motors are present, optical systems are definitely preferred. However achieving consistency of


performance in such applications can frustrate many would-be users of fibre-based systems in industrial applications.” OMC

its IntraVUE™ industrial network visualization and analytics software. This release - part number ZDF48-EA – speeds the process of problem detection by allowing the user to establish custom key performance indicators (KPIs) that provide managers with real-time visibility into critical plant network infrastructure, improving uptime and performance. IntraVUE™ software addresses the challenges unique to industrial environments, providing visibility into all levels of devices and connectivity, and enabling operational field technicians to efficiently communicate with IT resources. IntraVUE™ software also helps to speed both documentation and deployment, with advanced analytics to optimize ongoing performance. According to Hayo Volker Hasenfus, Director, Industrial Automation EMEA, Panduit: “Armed with this information, IntraVUE™ software empowers controls professionals to shift to a proactive approach, as opposed to a reactive response approach, responding only when a disruption occurs. This can greatly improve both the uptime and performance of these critical, real-time networks.”
