PC built to connect industrial floor to cloud

Emerson announced the new PACSystems IPC 2010 Compact Industrial PC (IPC), a rugged industrial computer designed to handle a wide range of machine and discrete part manufacturing automation applications. The new solution is designed to serve manufacturing sites and OEM machine builders who need a ruggedized, compact, durable IPC to cost-effectively support their Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and other digital transformation initiatives. The IPC 2010 addresses this by pre-loading the PACEdge industrial edge platform and elements of Movicon.NExT SCADA software, helping users run applications quickly using browser-based configuration. Provisions are included for keeping the software platform current and passively maintained, minimizing user effort, while maximizing reliability. Running an industrial version of Linux, and including serial and Ethernet connectivity, the IPC 2010 can be used as a communications gateway in a variety of topologies, and simultaneously or separately as an edge computing device. Users can implement the IPC 2010 as a flexible protocol converter—and for many other computing functions—in many IIoT, edge, OT/IT convergence, HMI visualization, SCADA connectivity, and digital transformation roles. Both the hardware and software are designed to be adaptable, universal, and scalable, providing a standardized and unified user experience that is easy-to-use, powerful, and supported by Emerson’s lifecycle services.

Combined PLC & HMI with increased display size and I/O options

IDEC Corporation has expanded its SmartAXIS touch family with the new FT2J Series combined PLC+HMI. A compact all-in-one form factor combines built-in full function controller features and functions, both onboard and expandable I/O, and an advanced technology 7 inch touchscreen display, providing many advantages for a wide variety of industries. An all-in-one PLC+HMI is compact and consumes far less panel space than separate units. Because the PLC and HMI are internally connected, require only one power supply, and share the same network connection, installation is simplified.

Self-Clean Package Retrofit

Lead Oxide reduces the equipment’s ability to dry and requires increased temperatures to perform to specifications. By returning the conveyor belt through the bottom of the lower supply duct with this retrofit, the duct remains clean and clear of lead oxide build up. This also eliminates the need to physically clean the lower duct doors individually.   ITS’ simple Self-Cleaning Retrofit for Existing conveyor belt ovens and Flashdrying Ovens is safer, saves time, money, and energy. The Retrofit Package Includes: ·     Reduction in oven temperatures by up to 60°F ·     Reduces facility energy and maintenance costs ·     Quality of production improved due to consistency of temperature ·     Conveyor belt returned below the oven ·     Reduces energy consumption ·     Reduces the time required to perform maintenance ·     Enhanced Employee Safety ·     Reduction in airborne lead oxide particles with optional vacuum connection ·     Custom Engineered Kit ensures existing system architecture and operation are retained.
