Advantech | Replace Expensive EtherNet/IP and PROFINET Switches With Advantech’s Managed Automation Switches
Optimized automation with integrated PROFINET, EtherNet/IP and Modbus/TCP entry-level managed switches
Having switches which can communicate directly across a diverse range of machine automation devices is essential. Advantech’s latest EKI-5500/5600-EI series of Industrial Protocol managed switches have been designed to communicate through EtherNet/IP and are ODVA certified to meet the requirements of the Common Industrial Protocol (CIP) for added reassurance.
The EKI-5500/5600-EI series are new generation of Industrial Protocol managed switch products. They are OVDA certified with the faceplate of its software interface integrated with Rockwell FactoryTalk® View. The devices come with a compact metal housing that is IP30 rated to protect against dust filled industrial environments. The wide power input power (8.4 to 52.8 VDC) is dedicated to operating in areas of unstable power and rugged environments.
These 8~16 port Industrial Protocol managed switches are designed specifically for vertical markets and include the most essential functions to seamlessly communicate directly with Rockwell PLCs. Through the integration of Faceplate—a configuration front-end, the EKI-55500/ 5600-EI series can communicate directly with Rockwell FactoryTalk® View SE and ME versions. We also provide Electric DataSheets ( EDS files) to users to seamlessly integrate with Rockwell PLCs.
As you’d expect from an Advantech switch, the EKI-5500/5600-EI series include all the functions needed for successful and easy network configuration. Features such as Ring, VLAN, and SNMP make them especially convenient for setting up a network infrastructure, and with the inclusion of ODVA certification, engineers will find it easier to roll out and configure large numbers of switches that can link with a wide variety of devices in today’s industrial environments.

Learn how to select the right cooling method for your application needs. Selecting a cooling system for an electrical enclosure is an important task that is not always as simple as it might seem. The consequences of choosing the wrong system often result in long-term maintenance issues or equipment failure. Thus, taking the time to make an informed choice in selecting an electrical enclosure cooling system is important. To help you select the most efficient cooling system based on your needs, we have created this white paper.

Make Your OT, IT, IIoT Protocol Interoperability Easier for Industry 4.0
A central consideration and challenge in achieving a connected smart factory is protocol division. Depending on the specific operation, system integrators may encounter numerous disparate automation protocols that must be connected to achieve the operational goals or optimization goals. The OT world encompasses MES (manufacturing execution systems), SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition), PLCs, meters, valves, sensors and motors, etc. The most common protocols are PROFINET, PROFIBUS, EtherNet/IP, and Modbus. IT systems include an ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system that mostly uses SNMP, HTTP, SOAP, XML protocols. The IIoT and industry 4.0 application requires the connection of many devices and systems to collect and share the vast amount of high-quality data across OT and IT platforms. The mainstream protocols for the adoption of the IIoT or Industry 4.0 are MQTT, AMQP, and CoAP. Moxa is one of the few product manufacturers and solution providers that offer a comprehensive product portfolio that makes the interoperability of OT, IT, and IIoT protocols straightforward.
For machine builders and automation engineers, being able to monitor their Ethernet switches from a SCADA/HMI gives them a great overall view of their control systems, and the ability to react in time to minimize system downtime. In addition, the most common concern related to deploying managed switches is operational complexity, including both setup and subsequent management. Moxa’s super-slim SDS-3008 smart switch is designed to meet these challenges. With its simplified protocol configuration, flexible mounting design, easy-to-use interface, and slim form factor, the SDS-3008 smart switch is the perfect fit for control cabinets in any smart manufacturing application.

IDEC FC6A digital I/O cartridges can easily be installed in SmartAXIS Touch FT1A- *14 and FC6A base units. With three types of cartridges available, the addition of these cost-effective cartridges allows FT1A-*14 Touch to be utilized in numerous applications that require more than 8 inputs and 4 outputs. Up to 2 cartridges can be configured which mean a maximum of 20 digital I/O can be configured in total. Plus, with its unique design, customers can not only add additional digital I/O onto their FC6A system with ease, they can also save cabinet space and money at the same time.
Note: Upgraded Automation Organizer version 3.70 is required to program all new digital I/O cartridges.

Basic instructions can be executed in 0.042 microseconds, and program memory is 640 kB. There are 1,024 timers, and six of the 512 counters are high-speed at rates up to 100kHz. These capabilities are combined with extensive data and bit memory, double the capacity of a typical micro PLC. These features allow the MicroSmart PLC to handle large programs with complex control requirements such as PID, flow totalization and recipes. All models have a built-in RJ45 Ethernet port, and an RJ45 RS232C/RS485 serial port. A plug-in cartridge adds an additional RS232C/RS485 port. An SD memory port and a mini-B USB port can each be used for data logging, program storage/transfer, firmware updating or recipe storage. The Ethernet port supports the Modbus TCP protocol, and the serial port supports the Modbus RTU protocol. IoT capability is provided by custom web pages which can be configured for remote monitoring and control. These web pages are stored in the MicroSmart PLC, which functions as a web server when its built-in Ethernet port or the HMI Ethernet port is connected to the Internet. These web pages can be accessed via any web browser running on any Internet-connected device such as a remote PC, a tablet or a smartphone.
Up to 4 expansion modules can be added to the 16 I/O model, and up to 15 expansion modules can be added to the 24 and 40 I/O models. These modules can be of any type with no restrictions as to the number of analog and specialty modules. This gives the 40 I/O MicroSmart PLC the capability to handle up to 520 I/O with a maximum of 126 analog I/O, much more than a typical micro PLC.The 40 I/O model also includes support for the CAN J1939 protocols. The CAN J1939 protocol is often used in diesel engine applications for various types of vehicles and vessels, and for mobile power generators.

World’s smallest laser scanner is the first with master/slave functionality
Certified for use in safety applications including AGVs, forklifts, robots and other items of moving equipment found in industrial facilities, the ultra-compact SE2L safety laser scanner is the first of its kind in the world to offer master/slave functionality! One SE2L scanner can act as master and communicate with up to three other scanners, reducing the required number of input and communication channels on the controller. Plus, this scanner provides a standard 270-degree arc of protection at a distance of up to 20 meters. The protection area can be configured into any pattern using either free programming software, or the scanner’s teach mode. Combine all that with dual zone protection, and in many applications SE2L can cut costs in half!
