Cable Entry Plates

Thu May 28, 2020  10:30 AM


The economical alternative to conventional cable glands – up to 80% time saving when inserting a wide variety of cables! With the membrane based gland plates cables, pneumatic and hydraulic hoses or optical fibres can be quickly and space-saving routed into control cabinets, panels or machines and be sealed with certified protection class up to IP68 (acc. to EN 60529) and UL type 4X (acc. to UL50 E). icotek gland plates are cost, space and time saving alternatives to traditional cable glands.

Securing OT & Machine Networks

Tue June 2, 2020  10:00 AM


OT cyberattacks are getting more frequent and more destructive. As companies discover new uses for plant floor data, interconnectivity of industrial control systems continues to grow. Luckily, strategies such as Defense-in-Depth and OT specific standards like IEC 62443 can greatly improve overall system security. When used in combination with Siemens secure networking equipment – a strong security posture can be attained.

Communication Inside the Panel

Thu June 4, 2020  10:00 AM


Are you looking for ways to reduce the time it takes to engineer, wire and assemble your control panel? One way to do this is by adding communication to the control panel, which provides added benefits for both panel builders and end-users. For the end user, communication allows for system level diagnostics that can help avoid costly downtime. For panel builders, adding communication in the control panel can mean a significant reduction in engineering, wiring and assembly time. In this webinar, we will explore technologies such as IO-Link and Industrial Ethernet (PROFINET) enabled pilot devices that add communication in the control panel while reducing overall engineering, wiring and assembly time.

Totally Integrated Automation Portal: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Thu June 4, 2020  1:00 PM


Remember the saying, “work smarter, not harder”? When it comes to programming PLCs following this advice can save you time, effort, and costs. Join Siemens for a 90-minute guided, live introduction to reducing, reusing, and recycling PLC code and HMI objects from one project to the next, without the need to reengineer. New and experienced users to Siemens automation products, will learn a basic, best practices approach to integrating, deploying, and versioning code libraries inside the Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) Portal.

Benefits of attending:
*Learn how engineering your code to be reusable from the start can save valuable engineering time and make machine diagnostics and troubleshooting easier
*Understand how leveraging versioned TIA Portal libraries can help drive PLC and HMI code standards across your organization
*Discover how HMI Faceplates can enforce a common look and feel for all your machine designs
*Explore the extensive, open-source libraries that have already been created by Siemens and our eco-system partners that are readily available for your immediate use

UPS1600 Uninterruptible 24VDC Power Supply

Tue June 9, 2020  10:00 AM


The SITOP UPS 1600 presentation provides a brief overview about available UPS solutions in the market and focuses on our battery based 24VDC UPS1600.
