Continuous Measuring Even in the Events of Mains Voltage Failure with PowerIn Technology™

Continuous Measuring Even in the Events of Mains Voltage Failure with PowerIn Technology™

Now there is no need to go without ultrasonic precision and fall back on other mechanical measurement techniques in the event of a mains voltage failure. The back-up batteries in the FLOWSIC-X gas flow meters supply energy in this case. Autonomous operation has been proven with the

What is IO-Link?

What is IO-Link?

IO-Link – principles and technology IO-Link is the world’s first standardized IO technology (IEC 61131-9) for communicating with sensors and actuators. The system components are an IO-Link master and an IO-Link device: a sensor, an actuator or a combination of both. The IO-Link master is a component

Presence Sensing Device Initiation (PSDI): How One Operation Function can Enhance Productivity, Cut Costs, and Improve Safety

Presence Sensing Device Initiation (PSDI): How One Operation Function can Enhance Productivity, Cut Costs, and Improve Safety

Presence Sensing Device Initiation (PSDI) refers to the use of a Presence-Sensing Device (often, though not limited to, light curtains) both to perform the safeguarding function and to initiate the machine cycle. While this is not new technology, having been around for nearly half a century, PSDI

Paper Per Running Meter: RFID Technology Ensures an Accurate Production Sequence

Paper Per Running Meter: RFID Technology Ensures an Accurate Production Sequence

It is clearly evident that digitalization has left its mark on the paper industry. Does the “print media” face an uncertain future or will haptic page turning hold its own? – both theories have their proponents. The digital age has long been a reality in paper production.
