Siemens New S7-1200FC Safety Controller

One Controller For Standard And Safety Automation!

  • Compact
  • Modular
  • Fail-safe
  • Cost-effective
Siemens started with Safety PLCs back in the 1980's with the S5 family, proving their experience with safety and innovation. They have now moved their knowledge into the TIA Portal platform with the 1500F and 1200F safety. The 1200F has all the features and benefits of the standard 1200 controllers with the addition of digital safety I/O and CPU. 

The new fail-safe CPU 1214 FC and CPU 1215 FC will expand the product portfolio of compact and modular SIMATIC S7-1200 controllers with fail-safe modules. The market segment of compact controllers is now served for the first time with a controller for standard and fail-safe applications. 

Top Key Benefits with S7-1200F:
  • Compact, powerful, cost-effective modular system with a scaleable CPU range & expandable I/O
  • Investment protection through compatibility
    • Simply an addition of fail-safe modules to the PLC
    • Simple porting of existing application programs between S7-1200<> S7-1500
  • Savings in design time
  • Reduced downtimes. faster documentation, faster throughput
  • Integrated Diagnostics & Automation Software
  • Maximum protection against manipulation

  • Stand-alone simple machine control
  • Material handling and packaging
  • Vertical form, fill, and seal

Banner EZ-Light K90 FDL Series Daylight Visible Indicators

Banner has released a K90 series of indicators that are now Daylight Visible. More visibility in areas with high levels of ambient light or direct sunlight is possible with these large lights. These lights are suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications.

Key differences between the K90FDL and K90TFDL:
The K90FDL models are available in 1-to 5-color models and only one color can be activated at a time. All models include a flashing input wire that will trigger any active color to flash at a rate of 1.6Hz. The K90TFDL models are meant for use when there is a possibility of more than one color being activated at a time. When more than one color is activated, the indicators will alternate between all active colors at a rate of 1 Hz. Models are available with two to five colors in one device.

Compact FEN20 Industrial Ethernet I/O Modules With Built-In Web Server From Turck

The new compact Ethernet multi-protocol I/O modules from Turck make standard switching signals quickly and effectively bus-capable. The FEN20 devices with digital inputs and outputs are immediately ready for use in Profinet, Modbus TCP, or Ethernet/IP systems, thanks to their multi-protocol plug-and-play functionality. The FEN20 detects the protocol used by listening to the communication traffic during the startup phase.

The FEN20 devices are available in two different designs. The small 4DIP-4DXP fits in small control boxes, control panels, or other existing housings. They can also be retrofitted to make push buttons and LED indicators quickly Ethernet ready. The large 16DXP is designed for the same type of application and provides up to 16 I/Os. It can be operated both as an input or output as a DXP variant. The module also provides the division of the I/O-signals into three independent potential groups which are isolated from each other and can be centrally controlled.
