The deSDAC 3003 PLC drive controller for Powerlink networks, enables safe drive control as well as safety-oriented data processing for digital and analog process peripherals. The unit, which can control two drives, features two-channel redundancy with cross-checking and fulfills the safety requirements of the 61508 (SIL 3) and EN ISO 13849-1 (category 4) standards. The controllers are configured by means of the SAFEPROG engineering tool. The units are capable of controlling highly dynamic positioning drives used in machine tools, logistics systems or stage machinery for example. The controllerâ€™s Powerlink interface is an ideal base for networks where the safety-oriented Powerlink Safety protocol ensures SIL 3-compliant data transfer or where the real-time protocol Powerlink provides high speed and bandwidth for safe components.The system's hardware platform consists of two ARM7-LPC2292 microcontrollers. Users can compile their own applications using C/C++ programming systems.
The last issue of IEN Europe before the summer break features a Special on Hydraulics & Pneumatics . Read a technical article on the effective Monitoring of Hose Assemblies , or get to know more about the Role of Valves in Industrial Automation . This month’s Cover Story is a case story on reducing the setup times of machinery by using automated actuators. In our Interview , a representative from the company Flir talks about the possibilities of thermography in industrial applications and recent advancements. As usual, we provide you with lots of add-on information, such as videos and data sheets.
Enjoy IEN Europe June/July and have a great summer.
