Turck Canada has announced a Zone 2 Ethernet gateway for the excom I/O system. All process data can thus now for the first time reach IT systems for analysis and evaluation at sufficient speed via a parallel data channel, the company says, a fast and easy way of implementing condition monitoring and predictive maintenance.
Turck Canada has introduced the TS+ sensor, a line of programmable temperature sensors that are used to measure and display process temperatures. The new sensor features a rotatable stainless steel housing for a long service life, the company says, multi-colour display, IO-Link, switching or analog outputs, and automatic detection of output signals for fast commissioning.
Most sensors and actuators today are already equipped with microprocessors, which can be used for parameterization, storing configuration data, and controlling indication. The obvious next step is to overcome the bottleneck of the binary standard interface and make additional functions centrally accessible for the automation system.
Turck Canada has introduced new website said to not only offers a fresh and clean design but also a global look and feel to give customers and visitors from around the world a consistent experience when visiting Turck online. Besides Turck-branded products and systems, Turck Canada continues to support these other suppliers in the Canadian market: Comatreleco, Curtis Industries, Datalogic, Grace Technologies, Hilscher, and Kubler.
The Grace Technologies Inside-Outlet is said to be unique because it has three GFCI-protected receptacles — two outside and one inside the panel. Additionally, the GFCI receptacle provide companies a trouble-free step toward complying with jurisdictions that require externally mounted utility receptacles be GFCI protected and tested every 30 days.
The LRS510 sensor line from Turck is said to offer extensive analysis functions for challenging level applications in tanks and silos. The IO-Link-capable radar sensors of the recently developed LRS series complete the company’s portfolio for level measurement in the 0.35 to 10 m range.
Turck Canada has introduced the QR24 non-contact encoder for use in explosion-proof areas (Zones 2, 22 or 3GD). The sensing unit and positioning unit are designed as two independent, fully encapsulated parts.
Turck has announced analog inductive sensors with IO-Link and true analog voltage output, said to be a key advantage since is the only one with an analog voltage output that can be set via IO-Link. The analog sensors allow users to easily teach-in a measuring range in addition to assigning out of range and temperature alerts with enhanced diagnostics, the company says.
The Kubler Codix 534 from Turck Canada is said to be a cost-effective standard signal display for front panel mounting with scalable, bright, 5-digit LED display. Due to 14 bit resolution, the unit can offer accurate measured value display range with minimum and maximum value acquisition and scalable totalizer for time-controlled summation of the reading, the company says.
Slip rings are generally used to transmit electrical currents, signals or data from a stationary to a rotating platform. The Kubler SR060E slip ring available from Turck Canada has been developed with smooth, straight surfaces that enable easy cleaning, is rated IP64 and thus meets the requirements of the food industry.
