Compact monitoring device for data cables

Until now, there were only two alternatives for the maintenance of machine parts and plants: either parts were only replaced if they were already defective, or parts that were still functional were replaced at specific intervals as a precaution. However, thanks to Industry 4.0 and digitalization, there is a more efficient alternative to reactive maintenance: preventative maintenance. The idea behind this is to carry out maintenance measures depending on actual performance. This is also possible for connection systems, such as cables or connectors. Although cables from LAPP usually last for many years, in situations with highly dynamic, demanding movements with high speeds and strong torsion, it is advantageous and cost-effective to monitor the cables in order to avoid unexpected downtimes which impair productivity.

ETHERLINE GUARD is the latest innovative solution from LAPP

This compact device monitors the performance of your highly loaded ethernet cable at risk of failure and displays its current status. Why perform preventive maintenance if it can also be planned in an optimal way? You too can take advantage of the benefits of preventative maintenance.

ADVANCED Motion Controls Takes Servo Drives to New Heights (and Depths) with FlexPro Extended Environment Product Line

Advanced Motion Controls is proud to announce the addition of six new CANopen servo drives with Extended Environment capabilities to their FlexPro line. These new drives join AMC’s existing EtherCAT Extended Environment FlexPro drives, making the FlexPro line the go-to solution for motion control applications in harsh environments.

Many motion control applications take place in conditions that are less than ideal, such as extreme temperatures, high and low pressures, shocks and vibrations, and contamination. Electronics, including servo drives, can malfunction or sustain permanent damage in these conditions.
