Belden is presenting new products and services at SPS IPC Drives (hall 10, booth 120). As well as enhancing the productivity of systems and machines, these innovations – such as the new railway-approved Cat 7 Ethernet data cable – can also be used to implement additional applications. Innovations from the Hirschmann product range at the fair include a new version of the Industrial HiVision network management software, the OpenOCTOPUS online configurator, and HiLCOS 8.8 WLAN firmware.
A further highlight is the 24x7 Technical Support Plan, a worldwide all-round service for networks. New products from the Lumberg Automation product range also being showcased at the Nuremberg event include ruggedized I/O modules from the LioN-R series for Profibus DP.
Release 5.0 of the Industrial HiVision network management software, with its HiFusion tool, sets new standards in terms of network transparency and data communication availability:
The OpenOCTOPUS online configurator enables the configuration of the ideal OCTOPUS switch for any individual application from over 30 water- and dust-resistant IP67/65/54 versions, thus also ensuring an excellent price-performance ratio.
The new HiLCOS 8.8 WLAN firmware, which can be installed on all BAT access points and BAT controllers, opens up a new range of options for using radio communication in the field of automation.
Technical Support Plan
The 24x7 Technical Support Plan significantly increases the availability of Ethernet networks based on Hirschmann or GarrettCom equipment, and enhances the productivity of business processes.
Thanks to their robust design and optimum functional dependability, the active I/O modules in the LioN-R series for Profibus DP guarantee reliable data communication even under the toughest environmental conditions. They are available with 16 digital input/output channels or with a combination of eight of each.
Ethernet data cable
The BE43802 Belden data cable is currently the only railway-approved Cat 7 product on the market that complies with class TX (EN 50155:2007) heat-resistance requirements. It also provides extra bandwidth for additional Ethernet applications that can bring enhanced comfort and safety to passengers.
