Wireless network supports multiple protocols

The OneWireless universal industrial wireless mesh network solution helps improve plant safety, reliability and efficiency with a scalable wireless infrastructure that supports wireless-enabled devices in strategic locations throughout a facility. It works with multiple industrial protocols and applications simultaneously, providing a single wireless network. Scalable to 30,000 devices, it supports existing Honeywell XYR 5000 wireless transmitters as well as the company’s new line of XYR 6000 transmitters. It also supports wired transmitters, mobile worker devices such as IntelaTrac PKS and Mobile Station, and standard Wi-Fi and Ethernet clients. The open, standards-based infrastructure allows manufacturers to take advantage of new applications as they become available.

Processor records, prints digital testing data

The standardized Aseptic M-7250CP constant pressure system incorporates new system architecture and is able to integrate machine controls, functions and data recording onto a single common platform.  Standard features include a Yokogawa data acquisition station (DAQ) that continuously monitors temperature, pressure and flow, enabling users to easily and cost-effectively record and print digital testing data. Additionally, the system offers Steam in Place (SIP) for aseptic processing of drugs in a cGMP environment, and Ultra Clean in Place (UCIP) that eliminates the need to disassemble for cleaning between batches or before storage.

Valves control all sizes of actuators

High-Flow NAMUR valves mount directly to pneumatic actuators. The valves compact and modern design can control actuators of all sizes and is said to provide exceptional flow. The solenoid valve offers NAMUR-compatible models in: 3/2, 5/2 and 5/3 functions for the control of single- and double-acting pneumatic actuators; 1/4-in. and 1/2-in. NTP port sizes with standard manual override; and nominal Cv flow of 1.2 and 3.0, respectively. The valves feature a sealing system with a “swimming” O-ring design, which allows valve sealing to increase proportionally to pressure.
