High-frequency RFID – FB library for extremely easy IO-Link integration with S7-PLC

The new function block library from Contrinex simplifies the integration of IO-Link read/write modules in RFID projects and thus reduces engineering time and costs. This library covers all the necessary functions for communication with a Simatic S7-1200/S7-1500 or equivalent PLC. The user can drag and drop the required IO-Link function block into the corresponding network…

Non-contact safety sensors with magnetic or RFID coding for door monitoring

Continuous investment in manufacturing automation brings with it a corresponding demand for increasingly sophisticated controls. Since modern factories often run ‘lights-out’ with minimal human oversight, ensuring the safety of operational personnel is always a priority. In the era of Industry 4.0, built-in protection for staff assumes ever-greater importance in automated process-control system design; ultra-reliable, maintenance-free…
