Company has added three new applications to Software Studio 5000, helping engineers speed development of automation systems as they design a connected enterprise. Along with the Studio 5000 Logix Designer application released in 2012, the new applications bring more functionality together into one environment to help improve automation design productivity.Read More
The Allen Bradley MobileView tethered operator interface gives plant personnel the freedom to take a machine’s human-machine interface (HMI) with them to make real-time adjustments to out-of-view applications. The MobileView suits maintenance tasks, machine setup or calibration activities, and other HMI applications that require the operator to see the machine. The inclusion of a hardwired e-stop button and three-position enabling switch also supports applications that require local safety functionality.
A new option within the Allen-Bradley PowerFlex 7000 medium-voltage drive helps manufacturers and equipment builders simplify their functional safety design and meet the demands of international safety standards. Safe torque off technology allows users to reliably remove power from the motor without removing power to the drive, enabling a faster re-start of the system after a safe state is reached.Read More
