Phoenix Contact now offers an industrial WLAN Ethernet adapter for integrating Ethernet-capable devices into WLAN IEEE 802.11a/n networks (5 GHz frequency band).
Explains how the devices from Phoenix Contact as part of a modernisation measure contribute to the robust and efficient operation of oil production stations.
The WirelessHART and ISA100 wireless standards provide facility operators with two additional communications solutions for transmitting field data. Many users are therefore asking which wired or wireless protocol represents the future-oriented technology that is best suited for efficient and safe production.
Dicusses the technical requirements of wind power stations in offshore use and, in particular, the necessity of lighning protection systems.
Disucsses the benefits of the new product ranged Plugtrab IQ for the protection of MCR applications.
The security services company Ziemann uses 208 cameras to monitor the transport and processing of large sums of money and valuable objects. Redundant power supplies from Phoenix Contact's Quint line ensure uninterrupted operation of this surveillance system.
Immersion-lacquered Quint Power modules with preventative function monitoring and SFB technology. They offer maximum reliability in the process environment of the process industry.
The protection on the secondary side contributes significantly to the availability of loads. This paper discusses the preventative function monitoring features and the robust design of the Quint DC/DC converters.
Discusses the different characteristics and benefits of applying a software PLC on an industrial PC as well as the special features of Phoenix Contact's solution which, for example, allows the run of control taks and the visualisation on hardware so that money, space and maintenance efforts can be reduced.
Conventional machine data collection systems are often used for centralised monitoring of machinery and entry of machine data. However, these systems come with expensive price tags, high leasing costs and sometimes even license fees. With the new WIN signal column wireless system in the PSD product line, Phoenix Contact is offering a cost-effective alternative.
Showcasing Phoenix Contact's product portfolio for the Photovoltaics industry. Phoenix Contact provides the complete package ranging from the module outlet box, pv cabling, surge protection to string monitoring.
Lighting customer Hella required a plug connector solution with suitable wiring for its LED street lamps. Phoenix Contact developed the connection technology for the energy-saving LED lamps and also installed them at our headquaters in Blomberg, Germany.
Describing how wireless systems from Phoenix Contact is used to reliably transfer the temperature sensor values to the control system.
Details the requirements of Danish pharmaceutical supplier FeF Chemicals has to obey to discharge uncontaminated rainwater into the Baltic Sea and how these requirements could be fulfilled with the SafetyBridge modules from Phoenix Contact.
Today, plants generally comprise of complex machines and systems with a high degree of automation. Servicing and maintenance of these types of applications calls for qualified service personnel. Frequently, only the manufacturer can provide such a service. Open automation platforms based on Ethernet provide users with attractive new options.
Standing still is essentially taking a step backwards – which is why the employees of H.-H. Schmedt e.K. are continually striving to improve their bookbinding machines. Hybrid motor starters from Phoenix Contact play a role in making the control cabinet smaller as well as reducing wiring and maintenance costs.
Every manufacturer and user active in the area of process engineering is familiar with the HART protocol. This technology modulates an analogue 4-20mA signal to a digital signal in accordance with the FSK (Frequency Shift Keying) process for the purpose of performing configuration work or collecting diagnostics data. Experience has shown that the procedure is commonly known but rarely used.
The junction box assembly is one of the last process relevant steps in photovoltaic module production. With this, the interface between module and pv system is designed. Phoenix Contact offers a new connection technology especially designed for production lines with a high level of automation.
Robustness, reliability, and flexibility: electronics in the industrial and semi-industrial environment have to meet these requirements in the face of increasing cost pressure, which device manufacturers are also noticing. Electronics housings can fulfill these requirements using an intelligent design, a modular concept, as well as rail-mounting.
During the planning of new systems and the maintenance of existing systems, high safety and availability are becoming increasingly important aspects. In risk assessment, the operator can identify hazards using a range of methods such as HAZOP (Hazard and Operability), FTA (Fault Tree Analysis), or the risk matrix. Hazard reduction measures can then be specified.
Size M12 connectors are used in many areas - today they are the standard when it comes to connection systems for plants and machines. With the new power connectors from the “M12 Power” series, the application areas have now been expanded to include the power domain.
Today, Industrial Ethernet is being very successfully used in the automation environment to establish communications between devices. The new 4-pair Profinet cables are now available to address more demanding plant and system concepts and provide a technology that is fit for the future.
Herrenknecht tunnel boring machines are used to drill through soft ground, mixed soil and hard rock all over the world, including at the Gotthard Pass, where the world's longest rail tunnel is currently under construction. This involves a vast amount of electrical engineering. Wherever wires come together in these machines, spring cage terminals from Phoenix Contact do their job reliably.
