IO-Link Hubs

IO-Link enabled sensors offer advanced features and diagnostics that can only be accessed through an IO-Link master module. These sensors act like standard sensors when not interfaced to an IO-Link enabled control system. This enables the stocking of the same sensors for standard I/O (SIO) applications and IO-Link applications, simplifying the selection process and reducing stocking costs.

Modernization - The New Migration

Modernization, or as we use to say, migration (and I’m not talking about crossing the western frontier in a covered wagon; although that topic might come up a little later), used to be a straight forward concept because controls were simple. We would come across an obsolete piece of equipment and simply replace it with the updated version. Today, automation equipment is more complex, the luxury of just getting the updated version isn’t available.

Integrated Safety

Over the past decade safety has become a high priority on the plant floor, and this is great to hear. Why? It means that employers want you to go home at night healthy and safe. These days it seems like you can't move without tripping a safety circuit on a machine and this has been changing the way we think about safety. With the advent of safety over Ethernet, we can monitor the safety system, make decisions, and notify people of problems faster than ever before. There is even an effort to include Collaborative Safety (where a person and a machine meet) as a focus moving forward to increase up-time.

Goodbye Legacy L4X Controllers…Hello Faster, More Flexible Ethernet Controllers

Believe it or not it has been 18 years since the launch of the CompactLogix; which brought the capabilities of the RSLogix 5000 software to a mid-range platform for the first time. Since it’s launch in 2001, many advances have taken place - two generations of hardware have come and gone, and it is now time to say farewell to the last available controllers of that era.

Rockwell Automation's New PanelView 5000 Will Not Disappoint

Every customer has a unique perspective on the PanelView 5000 family. Some think it’s old news. Others are not familiar with it at all. Rockwell Automation continually offers new products with new features and benefits – but the tech savvy person (me included) is always wary of the latest and greatest product offering. Does it do everything it is supposed to? Are there any bugs or as I like to call them “Undocumented Software Features”? These things are inevitable with new products, but I have decided that now is the time to seriously start thinking about the PanelView 5000 and here’s why.

Look Around, Gear is Everywhere!

Hi there. Angie Rypel, your friendly neighborhood Motor Control Center Specialist here. I’ve been looking around lately, and do you know what I’m coming to realize? Gear. Is. Everywhere. Literally everyone I meet needs power. To bring it into their facility, to distribute it, to condition it, to transfer it or prop it up in case of a failure, to use it to start motors or to turn on lights.
