IE-Node
Simple Remote Sensor Monitoring for PLC's & Automation Systems

         
 

The Industrial Ethernet Node (IE-NODE) is a remote monitoring interface designed to provide sensor data to PLC’s or other automation and control systems.

Both units can be expanded to 16 sensor inputs with the installation of optional expansion boards.

The IE-NODE operates by reading its sensor inputs and sending processed data when requested by another system (e.g. PLC). The units are equipped with an RJ45 Ethernet socket and supports PROFINET, EtherNet/IP and Modbus TCP/IP protocols for easy integration with Siemens, Allen-Bradley Rockwell, Modicon and other PLC’s or automation devices.

The IE-NODE’s network configurator software provides a visual view of all devices on the network. It allows for easy identification of each unit on the network and allows for network settings to be changed as needed.

Mill-Speed Switch
 

Milli-Speed Switch

The Milli-Speed switch sensor with 4-20 mA linear output signal is designed to detect belt slip, belt underspeed, stop motion, low speed or zero speed on bucket elevators, conveyors, air locks, mixers, fans, grinders and many other rotating machines. Totally sealed and simple to calibrate, the Milli-Speed works in the harshest of conditions.

 Touchswitch Belt Misalignment Sensor
 

Belt Misalignment Sensor (Contact)

The Touchswitch™ is an electromechanical limit-switch with no moving parts, which detects tracking and misalignment problems on bucket elevators and conveyors. Unlike a rub block that utilizes friction (heat) to activate, the Touchswitch is pressure sensitive (contact) for safer and more reliable monitoring.

  Brass Rub Blocks  

Belt Misalignment Sensor (Temperature)

Brass rub blocks process temperature information.  When the belt from a bucket elevator or conveyor rubs against the brass block, heat is created from the friction which is then relayed to a temperature sensor generating an alarm.
