The industrial IGMC-111GP Gigabit Ethernet Converter by ORing is a media converter with a wide operating voltage. It supports all copper side speeds and enables user flexibility for a fibre interface via an SFP socket.
ORing's IGS-9122GPM range of Ethernet networking switches is a modular managed industrial Ethernet switch with the base unit supporting 12 x 10/100/1000Base-T(X) ports and 2 x 100/1000Base-X SFP ports. The SFP ports can meet demand for long-distance data transmission with a selection of SFP modules.
Neousys Technology's Nuvo-6108GC is an industrial-grade GPU computing platform supporting high-end graphics cards.
Compliance Guide is a web-based management tool based on Decernis's compliance management system, gComply Plus, comprising more than 5 million terms from over 90,000 food and beverage regulations and compliance standards across 207 countries worldwide.
Dytran Instruments' model 7705A1 Extended Low Frequency (ELF) accelerometer combines both a piezoelectric and a variable capacitance MEMS element, combined as a single output, to create what the company claims is the widest frequency response bandwidth in the industry, from DC (0 Hz) to 10 kHz.
The Marco CheckMaster is a highly accurate system that virtually eradicates product overpack, reduces waste and improves productivity while allowing the user to measure, control and improve the packing process.
German researchers are in the process of establishing the Industrial Data Space, a virtual construct for secure data sharing based on standardised communication interfaces.
Blockchain can help to break down information silos to improve visibility and traceability from the farm to the table — want to know more?
Artificial intelligence is helping the Australian wine industry to significantly increase production efficiency by optimising machine use. Surely this system would have applications across at least all beverage manufacturers, if not the entire food industry.
Artificial intelligence (AI) gives computers humanoid and cognitive abilities that can lead to an increase in productivity. In addition, machine learning (ML) systems can be employed to assess problems and needs and resolve them accordingly.
The QMPS series from Qlight is a panel-mounted multifunctional speaker and can prevent cross-talk of different voice environments by selecting an audio signal fit for the specific environmental conditions.
The optoNCDT 2300-2DR blue laser sensor is specially designed for displacement and distance measurements on directly reflecting surfaces.
Excessive humidity, condensation and airborne pollution can cause corrosion, reduce surface resistance and trigger metal migration. maxon motor's ESCON 50/8 DC servo motor controller is not affected by these conditions.
Micro-Epsilon's capaNCDT 6112 system, for non-contact capacitive displacement measurement, is suitable for integration in machines and facilities.
Machines and products will organise, steer and control themselves autonomously in the smart factories that are on the horizon for almost all sectors of the food industry. However, this will not happen unless the networking challenges are solved — and this is where smart sensors will come out to play.
