Belden Inc. has added LioN-M I/O Profinet modules to its Lumberg Automation product range. The Profinet I/O modules support both real time (RT) and isochronous real time (IRT) standards. 

In the 0980 ESL 701 (16DI) module, channels are used as inputs, and in the universal version 0980 ESL 700 (16DIO Universal) they are used as either inputs or outputs in any combination up to a total of 16 points. The 0980 ESL 700 has a rated output current of up to 1.6A, with a maximum total current capacity of 9A. The diagnostic concept enables precise fault location for each individual port. Both modules facilitate line topologies and can also be used for existing communications structures such as cable ducts and energy chains without making any changes to their physical layout. The universal module offers flexibility not only at the planning stage, but also when making changes at the commissioning stage or during subsequent upgrades. 

Both network ports are equipped with four-pole M12 connectors with D coding. The eight I/O ports, each of which can be assigned to two digital I/O signals, have five-pole M12 connectors with A coding. The network ports are color-coded to prevent any possible confusion. These Profinet IO modules support DCP and LLDP. DCP protocol is used to assign the unique Profinet device name to the module. By this device name the module is clearly identified in the Profinet network.  

The I/O modules have a robust housing made of PBT (polybutylene terephthalate) and measures 243 x 60 x 23 mm. Both versions meet the requirements for industrial protection class IP67 and are designed for temperatures ranging from 10 C to +60 C. The power supply, which is connected via two five-pole 7/8 in. connectors, has a rated voltage of 24 V and a range of 11 V to 30 V.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
