Push Buttons, Panel Indicators, Relays

Picture yourself in this scenario: The automation project you made is having some problems since a valve is not activating. The problem is that the company is far away and production is stopped...

With our interface relay, just tell them to pull up the small lever on top of the relay if the valve doesn't get active just tell them to replace it or simply check wiring.

Either you want just a simple display unit of US35 or powerful interfaces with Nema 4 protection with keyboard and high size indicating LEDs. Our Optimate panels are compatible with most of the PLC automation brands. You have an option for every application and budget.

Wireless Solutions

Industrial wireless products provide secure and reliable solutions for a wide range of industries and applications, as an alternative for signal and data wiring. These products fall into four groups.

Wireless I/O, also known as radio telemetry, connect directly to sensor and control signals, and transmit the signal values by radio. The signals are either re-created as similar signals, or output as a data connection — Ethernet, Profibus, Modbus etc. Wireless I/O networks can be as simple as two units transferring a small number of signals from one point to another, or they can be complex data-acquisition networks with multiple “master” interfaces to external systems.

Wireless Gateways provide wireless connectivity between data buses - connectivity between devices using the same data bus, or between different data buses (Ethernet to Profibus to DeviceNet to Modbus etc). Wireless gateways are similar in operation to wireless modems, however gateways only provide a register interface to the data bus, transferring I/O registers only.

Wireless Modems transmit serial or Ethernet data, providing a wireless extension of the data link. Example applications are PLC to PLC connections (point-to-point), connecting SCADA to a group of PLCs (point-to-multipoint), or forming a wireless PLC LAN (multidrop). Wireless modems transmit the data with minimal transformation.

Wireless GPRS Alarm Modems use GPM mobile technology to provide alarm and status information directly to a mobile device, SMS, email, or via fax. The GPRS Alarm Modem can be located anywhere GSM reception is available. Site, remote location, or plant monitoring can be conducted remotely without the need for onsite employees.
