Networking and Security

Balluff offers its newest special Ethernet/IP network blocks for assembly and material handling technology. The IO-Link masters (BNI00EF/ BNI00EH) enable not only rapid integration of various IO-Link devices into existing networks, but also feature multiple

ports with 4 Ampere output current for connecting drive equipment such as 24 V DC motors or electrical stoppers.

Seamless production sits at the core of every company‘s operations. If production stops, due to an error for example, a quick response is required. But what if the specialist for the plant is not on site? Thanks to digitalisation, the magic words in this case are often remote maintenance. Estimates assume that up to 60 percent of errors can be resolved or at least supported via remote access. Weidmüller‘s u-link remote access service offers a system that is easy to install, easy to configure...

Profinet devices can be integrated into the engineering systems of controllers using their description files. In this way, all devices and parameters of controller networks can be created, maintained from a single system and saved. The system does not allow this in-depth integration for IO-Link devices.

Plug-and-play from sen­sor to data dash­board. Condition monitoring (CM) has long been known as a method for ensuring high availability of machines and plants by means of remote monitoring of parameters relevant to the operations. CM is increasingly becoming a key component of industry 4.0 business models. An example is the CM solution designed by Schildknecht AG, for radio data transmission and IIoT solutions.

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT for short) has arrived in practice. However, IIoT applications are only successful if they offer customers real benefits. At SPS 2019 MB connect-line showed some practical examples – based on customer applications that have already been implemented.

In many traditionally grown production networks, the focus is on free data exchange across all components and systems. However, if all paths are open, viruses and malware can spread unhindered in the entire network. To prevent this, it is recommended to segment the production network into manageable logical units – for example with the industrial firewall mbNETFIX from MB connect line.

In Germany, Europe’s biggest industrial economy, the harnessing of IIoT to digital automation has developed far enough for it to routinely be described as a fourth industrial revolution. However, the more devices, equipment, sensors and applications are connected, the greater the risk of cybercrime.

With in­dus­trial routers as IoT gate­ways, data can be col­lected and analysed – and at the same time ad­just­ments to the sys­tem con­trol can be done im­me­di­ately via re­mote ac­cess. At Han­nover Messe 2019, Hall 8, Booth A04/1, MB con­nect line will demon­strate how this can be done sim­ply and se­curely.

Data is the new gold. But instead of transferring a large amount of raw data directly into the cloud, the pre-processing of data at the edge of the network – edge computing – is increasingly favored. With mbEDGE, the collected machine and sensor data is evaluated locally and only the results are transferred to the cloud application.

"Never touch a run­ning sys­tem" is widely used in the au­toma­tion en­vi­ron­ment. To make the pro­duc­tion net­work more se­cure in spite of miss­ing up­dates, the ex­perts rec­om­mend the sys­tem­atic iso­la­tion of in­di­vid­ual net­work seg­ments – for ex­am­ple with the use of the mb­NET­FIX in­dus­trial fire­wall.
