The world’s smallest, most advanced laser scanner just got even better!
Certified for use in safety applications found in industrial facilities, the SE2L Safety Laser Scanner is competitively priced and already offers master/slave functionality and a scan-skip feature to reduce false triggers. Now, new models will also offer additional features including:
In recent years, user needs in machine vision inspection applications have shifted from analog solutions to GigE vision or USB 3.0 solutions With this transformation, the number of channels required for vision inspection has decreased. Furthermore, power over Internet (PoE) stable transmission, and reducing cabling have become standard requirements in the field.
To satisfy these needs, Advantech offers frame grabber cards that support GigE vision and USB 3.0 with the functions of independent bandwidth and ease of power control for simple installation and on-site maintenance.
Smart factory initiatives are growing rapidly. This results in more connected devices, more complex control networks, and more time spent configuring and managing equipment. Additionally, as these control systems are connected to enterprise systems and even the internet, the threat of cybersecurity attacks become a concern. In this webinar, we will discuss these and other challenges and introduce some best practices to overcome these challenges.

LD6A SignaLights utilize LED technology to provide a bright solution for supervising workstations or indicating the status of a process. These light towers have a unique ellipse lens shape and modern design, which uses a contrast of illuminated and non-illuminated areas to provide sharper illumination and increased visibility of status.
Optional clear lenses provide a sharper contrast to help avoid confusion about whether a signal is on or off. Lenses are also available in red, yellow, blue, green and pure white, which work with 24V DC base units.
All LD6A light towers come prewired and preconfigured, eliminating time-consuming wiring. All colored tiers come with color-coded wires, ready-to-operate right out of the box without additional assembly and wiring. All units also come with mounting screws and washers.
Jump Start to IoT Solution...
As more Industrial Control Networks become connected to enterprise networks and even the Internet, security continues to be a rising concern. These converged IT/OT networks introduce security vulnerabilities and challenges that operations managers are still learning to deal with. In this webinar, we share the most common cybersecurity issues with IT/OT networks, and the practical tips and best practices that have been developed to counter them.
In this webinar you will learn:
• Where the biggest security gaps and vulnerabilities are.
• Which emerging cybersecurity industry standards to watch for.
• How security zones and conduits keep you safe.
• Common weaknesses and easy fixes.
MicroSmart FC6A Plus CPU exceeds the competition with premium features including 2060 digital I/O, 511 analog I/O, Bluetooth communication, FTP Client/Server protocol, SD memory for data logging, dual Ethernet ports and the WindEDIT Lite App for iOS and Android. Now, with the introduction of BACnet/IP protocol, users can expect even more.
BACnet stands for "Building Automation and Control Networking Protocol". A communication standard for building networks and equipment, this protocol has been standardized for interoperability between systems built by different manufacturers. Conforming to BACnet allows equipment and systems that use the IDEC MicroSmart FC6A Plus, such as HVAC, lighting, security and peripheral equipment, to be connected and monitored using a common method. Best of all, with BACnet there's no extra hardware or added cost.
With a quick firmware upgrade, available in Automation Organizer (AO) version 3.12.00 and WindLDR version 8.9.0, BACnet/IP is now supported on embedded Ethernet Port #1 of the MicroSmart FC6A Plus CPU. Configuring BACnet/IP on the FC6A Plus CPU is simple and intuitive, so download the latest AO and experience the latest innovation from IDEC MicroSmart FC6A!
