INLINE(TM) enclosures protect fieldbus components and other instrumentation devices. The enclosures are available in landscape sizes that accommodate components for device networks including DeviceNet, Profibus, SDS, and Seriplex. A window door allows viewing of indicator lights. The enclosures' DIN-rail mounting system simplifies component installation. INLINE enclosures for fieldbus applications are available in Type 304 and 316L stainless steel, as well as mild steel. Mild steel finish is a textured, light-grey polyester powder coating the inside and outside of phosphatized surfaces.
At the Design News webinar on June 27, learn all about aluminum extrusion: designing the right shape so it costs the least, is simplest to manufacture, and best fits the application's structural requirements.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
