What is IO-Link?

More than just another interface, IO-Link is the smart concept for standardized linking of switching devices and sensors to the control level by means of an economical point-to-point connection.  The IO-Link communication standard at the fieldbus level enables centralized fault diagnostics and, because parameter data can be modified dynamically direct from the application, the devices can be adjusted to the prevailing production requirements during operation.

LED lighting Improving Safety
LED Lighting Improves Safety

Do you feel unsafe at night when there is little to no light? Whether you are on a college campus, parking garage, or simply walking on a side walk for exercise at night, it is important to be safe!

When it comes to safety, there are tremendous advantages of LEDs. With better quality light and more durable lamps brightening campuses, parking garages, etc., the move to LEDs improves safety and gives facility managers the peace of mind that comes with a long-lasting product.

Discover all the ways LEDs can improve your safety.



Trend Toward Integrated Safety in AC Drives

Over the past years, manufacturing processes have increased in complexity and the move toward modularity of machines has caused the safety functions to move away from the classical centralized safety designs (for example, deactivation of the complete machine using a main switch) and into the machine control system and/or the integrated AC drives.

How can you benefit from an AC Drive with Integrated Safety?

Everyone loves magnets!

I see it at our customer Lunch with the Van events. Every time we have our magnetic tools out on display, anyone walking by cannot resist the temptation to stop and play for  little while.   I am sure that some of you remember the Wooly Willie game, more than likely it was sitting next to your Etch A Sketch, Rock’em Sock’em Robots, or Rubik’s Cube – soon to be replaced by the high tech games like Simon, Pong, and Atari.  I know that some of you are saying “What is he talking about?” and some are saying  “Hey! I had those too, aaahhh the good ol’ days.”  

Now, magnets are more than just fun and games. They are changing the way we work with switchable magnetic tools. 

Learn more about the how magnetic tools are changing the way things are done.
