ACHEMA 2015: The seven trials of an I/O module

Sometimes, our engineers like a good challenge. Recently, one of our IO modules was the subject of an especially demanding study: The Simatic ET 200AL I/O for installation without control cabinet was put to the test. Seven trials were scheduled to find out whether the tiny module really complies with the standards for IP65/67 degree of protection, one including a burner. The result: Simatic ET 200AL may be small, but it is one tough cookie. Every event has its special moments. You stroll around ...

ACHEMA 2015: An integrated power supply in the process industry? It’s a safe bet with Totally Integrated Power

We first notice how important a functioning power supply is when it’s no longer there – for example during a power failure. In production environments, this is not only a nuisance but also a huge cost risk.A stable power supply is particularly critical in the process industry – in other words, an uninterrupted, secure supply of power must be ensured at all times. This is not only applicable to failures but also to fluctuations in the power quality – otherwise, it’s not only the systems that stop ...
