B&R will be presenting simple and efficient automation solutions for key challenges currently facing the industry
Eggelsberg – In Hall 7, Booth 7101 at the Motek trade fair, which is taking place from the 8th to the 11th of October 2012 in Stuttgart, B&R will be presenting new solutions for two key challenges currently facing the industry – energy monitoring and condition monitoring – in addition to their motor-mounted motion control system product range. They facilitate optimum configuration of machines and systems and are the perfect complement to a modular drive solution for maximum performance and flexibility. In particular; the ACOPOSremote and ACOPOSmotor inverters with IP65 protection are effective products for creating modular architectures and greatly simplifying commissioning. Both the ACOPOSremote and ACOPOSmotor are equipped with a POWERLINK interface. These two inverters also provide software compatibility to the complete B&R drive family. This makes it possible to utilize all of the tools and features available in B&R Automation Studio as well as applications created therein.
Another important topic at the trade fair will be Integrated Safety Technology. B&R's safety system can be seamlessly integrated in the standard control system, i.e. the main controller, and the integration of both systems – standard and safe – reduces wiring to a minimum. Here, B&R relies on the open standard openSAFETY. Modular machines benefit particularly from this network-based wiring approach, since the ready-to-use machine components can simply be connected as a single unit, safe drives and all. In such a system, the integrated safety technology includes all safety-related hardware and software components.
