3 Methods for Sharing Data from an IIoT PLC

Historically, PLCs shared their data using methods such as writing data to memory cards then transferring the files to a network, or data tags were read by an HMI, SCADA, Historian, DCS, or some other higher-level software. Those capabilities still exist.  But now there are other options.

IIoT PLCs vs IIoT Gateways

PLCs have been doing a lot of this work for decades.  However, there are some newer functionalities in our PLCs that make this marketing concept easier to implement.  Learn more about “3 Methods for Sharing Data from an IIoT PLC” to understand these functionalities.

Kyntronics SMART Hydraulic Actuators

Kyntronics SMART Hydraulic Actuators combine the best features of hydraulic power with the precision of servo control (used in ball screw & roller screw electro-mechanical actuators), without the inherent disadvantages of those approaches.

Parker CPI™ Fittings

Industrial settings with strenuous applications, such as thermal cycling and vibration, are recognized as some of the toughest environments for tube fittings. In all cases, such applications demand highly precise, leak-free technology to ensure protection from vibration and thermal cycling.

Total Cost of Ownership and the Integrated Watlow PM Controller

Total Cost of Ownership means looking beyond the material cost of the product and understanding the larger, surrounding value chain.  Learn how Watlow’s PM controllers minimize downtime and total cost of ownership.

PoleStar Smart-E Refrigeration Dryers

Parker Industrial Gas Filtration and Generation Division recently announced that the launch of their new cycling refrigerant dryer series, PoleStar Smart-E (PSE) Series, will be coming in April 2021.

ISO Cleanliness Guidelines for Hydraulic & Lube Oils

Studies show that approximately half of lost machine life is due to mechanical wear and approximately 80% of mechanical wear is caused by particle contamination in the oil. When oil is kept clean, wear rates go down and component service life goes up.

TTK Leak Detection Solutions for Water, Acid and Oil

TTK addressable sensing cables are fitted with patented micro-controllers that allow pinpointing of faults on multiple sensing cables simultaneously. The unique structure of these cables efficiently prevents false alarms from condensation, dust, and conductive elements.

Des-Case Breathers

Des-Case rolls out a new and improved, patent-pending breather construction. More desiccant and increased airflow without increasing the external dimensions of the breather.

The Important Role of Differential Pressure Sensors in Hydroelectric Power Generation

In hydroelectric power generation, dirt and debris in the intake water can shorten the lifetime of turbine blades. Filters inside intake pipes trap the debris so that only sediment-free water hits the blades. A differential pressure sensor/transducer measures the flow. Learn more.
