The relays communicate with the control level via IO-Link to transfer, for example, measured values and messages. The Sirius 3UG48 monitoring relays for electrical and mechanical measurements monitor the observance of parameterizable limits for speed, network quality, current, power factor (cos phi) or voltage.
The Sirius 3RS14 and 3RS15 temperature monitoring relays have between one and three resistance sensors or thermocouples for controlling temperatures from -99 to +1,800 degrees Celsius, and can also be used for simple control tasks . The new monitoring relays can also fulfill their monitoring tasks reliably without an IO-Link connection to a controller.
Connecting the new Sirius relay via an IO-Link to the control level facilitates efficient, central parameter assignment as well as detailed fault localization and diagnostics. This simplifies commissioning and maintenance. The devices have several LEDs and a display for showing actual values and can be used directly in the control cabinet for diagnostic purposes. The values are also displayed in the central control system via the IO-Link for simple further processing. The new Sirius relays are parameterized either directly at the device or from the central control system via the IO-Link.
Data synchronization with the higher-level control system ensures that the system documentation is up-to-date at all times. New parameters are automatically assigned by a parameter server, which makes it considerably easier to replace any devices. For efficient energy management, the Sirius relays 3UG48 also support the data formats defined in the Profienergy profile.
IO-Link is a communication standard for uniformly linking sensors and switching devices to the control level by means of a cost-effective, point-to-point connection. IO-Link facilitates central fault localization and diagnostics down to sensor/actuator level, and simplifies commissioning and maintenance, because parameter data can be dynamically changed directly from the application. This helps to increase plant availability and lower engineering expenditure. As an open interface, IO-Link can be integrated into all conventional fieldbus and automation systems.

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event
On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...
Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.
Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....
Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).
When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...
Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.
How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...
Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.
It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
