Efficient Building Automation with AS-Interface

AS-Interface has long been the epitome of efficiency in production facilities around the globe. Now the simplest bus system in the world is also playing an increasing role in building automation as well. Bihl+Wiedemann as well is seeing stronger demand from the field of building automation and has accordingly adapted and expanded their own product portfolio appropriately. To demonstrate use of AS-Interface in this context, their newly constructed production facility in Mannheim is being used as a test object. Generating cost savings is a simultaneous objective. Thomas Müller, Sales Manager at Bihl+Wiedemann, is overjoyed at the many small savings realized in operating the facility, and is confident that “all of this is going to add up significantly.” With AS-Interface Gateways ...

[new] Ha-VIS eCon Switches: 16 Ports in the most compact space

The installation of additional communication infrastructure within production facilities can be achieved quickly, cost efficiently and flexibly with Plug&Play Ha-VIS eCon Ethernet Switches. Thanks to the compact design, customers require only a minimum of space in the electrical cabinet. The rapidly growing number of Ethernet-capable end devices in the field calls for a corresponding increase in the number of ports for the Ethernet switches. With 16 RJ45 ports, the new variants of the Ha-VIS eCon family offer the perfect solution for these demands. Developed and optimized for deployment in tough industrial environments, the “unmanaged” Ethernet switches allow a low-cost expansion of existing network infrastructures, and also the creation of new industrial networks. With approvals for industry, the maritime market and ...

[new] Security router for process technology

The topic of security is becoming increasingly important in process engineering. Phoenix Contact has the solution with its new mGuard security router. The security router satisfies both the demanding hardware requirements of the process industry and the stringent IT requirements for security products. In terms of hardware, the extended temperature range of -40 to +70°C, the IECEx and ATEX approvals for the ex area and the corrosive gas test according to ISA-S71.04-1985 G3 Harsh Group A are just a few of its many advantages. On the software front, additional security blocks for the OPC Classic protocol, which is widely used in industry, have been integrated alongside the existing MGUARD security functions. These blocks include DPI (Deep Package Inspection) and NAT ...

Siemens enhances controller portfolio for process industry

Simatic S7-410 controller further developed Siemens continues to develop its controller portfolio to handle sophisticated tasks in the process industry. Users of the flexibly configurable controllers, which offer a high level of security and availability, will therefore benefit from long-term investment protection. The first step was to give the Simatic S7-410 the standard coating for operation in toxic atmospheres and to further increase the fault tolerance of the redundant system. Siemens has also extended the ambient temperature range up to 70 degrees Celsius, which allows users to deploy the powerful Simatic PCS 7 controller in harsh environments, such as in oil and gas applications. The next steps will be, for example, to further expand the Profinet functionality in order to ...

Small-mid scale projects to pave future for Asia’s energy and maritime landscape

The 4th Asia Pacific Small & Mid-Scale LNG Forum will gather energy and maritime professionals to drive discussions on critical issues transforming Asia’s energy and maritime landscape. Recent developments across the natural gas and LNG supply chain, particularly within the small and mid-scale sector and related industries such as the offshore, marine and shipping industries have revealed that small-mid scale projects are offering economical solutions to develop Asia’s energy and maritime landscapes. Seemingly larger mergers such as Shell’s recent acquisition of BG Group have further bolstered the region’s small-mid scale sector activity. Shell’s take-over of BG’s operations will increase its LNG capacity to 33mtpa – of which will allow it to capitalise on the stranded reserves on Arrow through BG’s ...
