Single Pair Ethernet for IIOT Infrastructure

Thurs October 22, 2020  7:00 AM – 7:45 AM


The increasing level of digitalisation of industrial plants calls for the further development of existing Ethernet cabling. Weidmüller and partners from the field of electrical connectivity all rely on the innovative Single Pair Ethernet technology when developing new industry standards.

In this webinar, you will learn how SPE works and how it can benefit you.

• Turning four into one: SPE explained in simple terms

• Ultra-compact design and further advantages of SPE

• Directive-compliant connectors for today and the future

Efficient conversions and modernizations with no downtimes

Thurs October 22, 2020  7:00 AM – 7:45 AM


Migration solutions for quick and easy system updates
Migrate existing PLC and DCS systems fast and reliably without rewiring the field level.

When industrial plants age, are no longer state of the art, or when support or spare parts availability is limited, a system update is required at the control level of a process plant. When replacing PLC or DCS systems, it is crucial to avoid wiring errors and keep downtime during the migration process as low as possible.

Manufacturer-independent solutions for each PLC/DCS
By using manufacturer-specific adapter cards and pre-assembled system cables, the new control system can be put into operation quickly and easily. The field wiring remains unaffected by this, and any time-consuming and error-prone rewiring is avoided.

Space-saving bridge system

Efficient card system
The control system’s front connectors including the existing input and output wiring are simply contacted onto new manufacturer-specific adapter cards.

Split QT grommet systems for cables with connectors

Thurs October 22, 2020  10:00 AM – 11:00 AM


With the new version of the compact, split cable entry system KEL-QUICK icotek released a highly efficient and cost-effective possibility for passthrough and IP54 sealing of cables with or without connectors, conduits and pneumatic hoses. In addition to the fast and tool-free assembly, the system convinces with a time saving of up to 70% compared to conventional cable glands.
After equipping the frame with the cables or hoses, the cover lid of the KEL-QUICK is simply snapped onto the frame. A fast and easy assembly is the biggest benefit when using the QUICK series – when used with the KEL-SNAP frame a complete tool-free installation is possible.
Slit cable grommets of the QT series are used for routing lines with diameters of 1 – 29 mm within the KEL-QUICK.

Understanding PPE Requirements: NFPA 70E [0.1 CEU]

Wed October 28, 2020  10:00 AM – 11:00 AM


When risks associated with electrical hazards are not adequately reduced, employees shall be provided with, and shall use, protective equipment designed and constructed for the specific part of the body to be protected and for the work to be performed. Some of the provisions discussed will pertain to rubber gloves with leather protectors, arc-rated gloves, arc-rated face shields and arc flash suit hoods, arc-rated balaclavas, arc-rated clothing, arc-rated outer layers, hearing protection and eye protection.

Siemens TIA Portal: A plan in motion

Thur Nov 5, 2020  1:00 PM


In today’s business environment, manufacturers are striving for greater throughput and higher quality production than ever before. To achieve these goals automated production lines often utilize large numbers of coordinated motion control drives and motors to assemble or process completed goods automatically. Join Siemens for a 90-minute guided, live introduction to implementing motion control axes inside the Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) Portal. New and experienced users to Siemens automation products, will learn a basic, best practices approach to creating coordinated motion control axes and commissioning servo motors and drives.

Benefits of attending:
• Explore basic motion control concepts such as: virtual axes, gearing, and electronic camming inside the Siemens S7-1500 Technology PLCs.
• Learn how to quickly and easily add and commission Sinamics S210 servo drives and motors inside the TIA Portal.
• Discover how technology objects inside of the TIA Portal simplifies communication and control, and increases the functionality of motion axes.
• Understand how using standardized, vendor-neutral PLC-Open motion commands can save time and effort during programming and commissioning.
