AutomationDirect has proudly entered the industrial vision market with the addition of the Datalogic Smart Vision sensor. This sensor is an intelligent self-contained system that can capture an object’s image as it passes by and make decisions based on the details of that image. Built around a powerful multiprocessor platform featuring embedded artificial intelligence technology, the Smart-VS sensor is highly advanced but remains simple to configure using the teach procedure or Web app. These sensors can be used to check production output for flaws or verify an object's positioning before entering the next phase of production.
The Ibex-1310 and Ibex-1510 are concurrent dual band (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz) access points and clients designed to meet the IEEE 802.11ax standard, also known as Wi-Fi 6. By delivering enhanced performance and speed, especially in device-dense environments, the access points create networks that better support applications such as maintenance access, train data offloading and management systems, and hotspots for passenger Wi-Fi. The Ibex-1310 is approved for use on industrial vehicles, while the Ibex-1510 has been tested and certified to meet rail standards EN 50155 and EN 45545-2, allowing deployment both onboard trains and trackside. The devices are designed to withstand the tough environment onboard vehicles, including the exposure to constant vibration, extreme temperatures, humidity and demanding electromagnetic environments. An extremely compact and power efficient design enables easy integration in space-restricted installations.
The Festo Automation Experience (AX) is a new artificial intelligence (AI) platform for predictive maintenance, predictive quality, and energy optimization. Using advanced analytics, Festo AX maps data to learn a component, machine, product, or energy system’s healthy state. Festo AX provides actionable information to correct anomalies when data begins trending out of normal. This solution from Festo improves machine utilization and quality, lowers waste, and ensures energy optimization.

Emerson has released DeltaV IO.CONNECT, a new subscription software service designed to help plants simplify modernization with an open architecture pathway that makes it possible to transition to more efficient control schemes without the need to completely overhaul existing infrastructure. In a traditional plant with tens of thousands of I/O points and many controllers, this can save hundreds or thousands of hours of labor and up to 40% of the capital required for a total rip-and-replace upgrade. Many plants still using control systems from 20 or 30 years ago are unable to reap the benefits of modern, digital technologies that optimize operations and improve sustainability.
LS Electric L7P Servo Systems from AutomationDirect AutomationDirect has added new L7P servo motors, drives, cables, and gearboxes from LS Electric. These new intermediate-level L7P servo systems have all the features of the basic L7C servos including setup wizards, auto tuning, built-in indexer, and more, but with a larger range of system sizes and the option for 460VAC operation. The built-in absolute encoder on each servo motor is also higher resolution at 19-bit (524,288 ppr). The L7P systems are available from 100W to 7.5kW with 230VAC input power and 900W to 7.5kW with 460VAC input power. The 230VAC systems can operate single-phase up to 2.2kW. All motors are available with or without a 24VDC holding brake. The free Drive CM software eases setup/configuration and includes autotuning algorithms and an oscilloscope to fully optimize your application. A matched set of LS Electric gearboxes are also available for each motor, with gear ratios of 5:1, 10:1, and 20:1 (7.5kW systems limited to 15:1).
The D-phi Series re”D-phi”nes accuracy, reliability, and ease-of-use for pH sensors. Avoid headaches and wasted money with features that eliminate common installation and maintenance problems.
