control panel series was expanded by two new panels with a 5.7 inch touch
display. The ETV 0551 is equipped with an analog resistive TFT color touch
screen (IP 54). The ETV 0552, which is equipped with a glass touch screen and
frontal IP65 protection against dust and water, is even more robust. Because
there is no offset edge between the glass touch screen and the frame, the panel
can be easily cleaned. The ETV 0552 is useful for use in raw industrial
environments as well as in food processing, packaging and medical technology.
The fanless control panels are based on the EDGE-Technology.
Both ETVs are equipped with 1-Gbyte Flash and 64-Mbyte DDR RAM. For remnant
data, 512 kbytes of memory is provided. A micro SD memory card is used as the
storage medium for the operating system, the application and user-specific
data. Eight digital in- and outputs are already "on board".
The numerous standard interfaces such as VARAN bus, CAN bus,
Ethernet, USB and USB Type Mini, are located on the bottom and allow the simple
integration of the ETV 0551 and 0552 into the machine structure. All interfaces
can be freely programmed by the application. With LASAL, a universal and fully
integrated engineering tool for programming and visualizing functions is provided.
The integration idea from Sigmatek combines PLC, HMI, Motion Control and Safety
in an integrated platform.

In today’s connected world we are seeing the beginning of connected homes, smart grids, self-driving automobiles, drones, and many other amazing devices. Out of all the soon-to-be connected devices, which device poses the greatest dangerous to its users and society?
There is a new cooperation between the Industrial Internet Consortium and Plattform Industrie 4.0 to explore the potential alignment of their two architecture efforts: the Reference Architecture Model for Industrie 4.0 (RAMI4.0) and the Industrial Internet Reference Architecture (IIRA).
The problem with a four-, five-, or six-year degree is that they don’t teach engineers the soft skills required to have a successful career. Here are seven skills that every engineering graduate needs to be successful.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
