Integrating Fluid Power Into Safety Functions:

Safety functions are the Safety Related Parts of the Control Circuit which reduce risk to an acceptable level by the safety and reliable removal of power from hazardous motion and other sources. Pneumatic and Hydraulic cylinders are still the primary sources of motion in Industrial Manufacturing Machines. One of the leading causes of injury is the uncontrolled rapid motion of pneumatic cylinders when clearing a jam because pressure has not been relieved. To assure reliable operation of these Safety Functions, the failure mode of these fluid power devices must be understood and managed. The seminar will review the selection and design of safeguarding circuits with emphasis on the incorporation of fluid power devices.- Instructor: Heinz Knackstedt-C&E Safety Specialist

Siemens S7-1200F Fail-Safe PLC:

We'll take a look inside the Siemens compact fail-safe PLC, S7-1200F. Combining both standard and fail-safe IO and functionality on a single platform, you can build a simple fail-safe application and control it through an HMI. Siemens SIMATIC Safety Integrated is a safety integrated solution for everything from micro PLCs to PLCs with the highest demand; including PC-based wireless solutions and more. - Instructor: Steve Wright-C&E Safety Specialist and John Pipkin-C&E Automation Specialist

Safety Integration for VFDs:

General purpose drives are being used in more applications each day. Many of these applications require safe control and monitoring of the motor. The Siemens GP drive portfolio offers some of the most comprehensive safety functionality in the industry. In this session, you will learn about these safety features, which ones are right for your applications and how to implement them at your facility. - Instructors: Jay Swank-C&E Motion Specialist and Dennis Moore-Siemens Motion Consultant

New From Turck: Pressure Transmitters Developed For Demanding Applications

Recently, Turck introduced the PT2000 line of pressure transmitters, which offer a welded stainless steel measuring cell for increased durability and increased chemical compatibility. The PT2000 offers a solution that has no elastomer seals and all wetted materials are 316L stainless steel. This makes the solution uniquely capable to meet the environmental needs in water pumping, hydraulic, and refrigeration applications.

With its gel filled housing, the PT2000 eliminates problems caused by condensation in applications with a wide range of temperatures, such as pumping ground water. Additionally, the housing is more compact than existing solutions, suiting it for more applications with space constraints. The PT2000 is also capable of handling pressures up to 1000 bar.

The PT2000 comes equipped with a standard M12 connector that is available in multiple wiring configurations to allow for easy integration into existing applications. The new pressure transmitter is also available with process connections such as NPT, BSPP, and SAE, which are commonly used in North American hydraulic applications.
