Distributed Modular I/O In The Food Processing And Beverage Industry For Hygienic Pressure Wash-Down Applications Balluff is pleased to introduce industry's first machine mount, IP69K protection rated, ECOLAB certified distributed I/O modules powered by EtherNet/IP, PROFINET, and IO-Link. End users and machine builders of automation in food, meat, dairy and beverage industries that need to follow stringent food safety requirements can now utilize full benefits of distributed modular I/O architecture for all the required I/O and sensor connectivity. The IP69K portfolio includes network I/O, IO-Link masters and IO-Link I/O hubs. These distributed I/O modules can be mounted right on the machine closer to sensors and actuators to reduce troublesome cable routing. The entire portfolio of IP69K modules utilizes standard M12 connections to sensors eliminating need for cable terminations in the cabinet. All the modules are equipped with onboard diagnostics for ease of integration and maintenance. ECOLAB certified stainless steel V4A (1.4571) housing with elevated two-hole mounting makes these modules easy for cleaning with high-pressure fluids or steam wash or corrosive chemicals. With IO-Link onboard, there are endless possibilities for connecting a multitude of smart devices, analog devices or discrete I/O sensors and valves. Balluff's IO-Link I/O hubs, with expansion capability, can scale-up to 240 I/O points on the single network node eliminating network clutter and cost involved with traditional network I/O solutions. IO-Link enables machine builders to bring the status and configuration of sensors on-board the controller with the same M12 washdown-rated sensor cable that is used for standard 3-wire sensors. Balluff's new washdown I/O portfolio simplifies design, installation and maintenance of traditionally difficult I/O applications. Distributed modular architecture is commonly used in automotive and general automation applications. "With the availability of the IP69K modules, our customers in food and beverage industry could simplify their controls architectures, reduce expensive cabinet space by utilizing machine mount devices and reduce their time to market", says Shishir Rege, Marketing Manager for Networking and Safety at Balluff Inc. With complete configurability for standard I/O as well as IO-Link smart devices into the controller simplifies the design of the system, reduces potentials for human errors and makes troubleshooting a lot easier- reducing downtime in production and build time at machine builder.

March 28, 2017 New Contamination-Free Weigh Modules Offer Quick Installation into Production Line METTLER TOLEDO’s brand-new MultiMountTM weigh modules are helping manufacturers in food, pharma and other industries obtain the hygiene, convenience and accuracy required to keep them ahead of the pack. Greifensee, Switzerland—METTLER TOLEDO is pleased to launch its brand-new, fully-certified hygienic SWB805 MultiMountTM weigh modules. These weigh modules are designed according to European Hygienic Engineering & Design Group (EHEDG) guidelines and certified by National Sanitation Foundation (NSF). As fully integrated weighing solutions, SWB805 MultiMount weigh modules reduce contamination risk and comply with hygienic standards while increasing processing efficiency in industrial settings. Protective bellows do not need to be opened for installation, which further reduces contamination risk. A mirror surface-polish also dramatically reduces opportunities for bacterial contamination, as does the fact that weigh modules are fully self-draining to avoid standing water. SWB805 MultiMount weigh modules are also extremely versatile. They are offered in a wide range of capacities from 110 kilograms up to 4,400 kilograms, making them appropriate for a wide variety of applications. Perhaps even more importantly, they offer solid weighing performance at nearly any orientation. That makes them exceptionally easy to integrate into your equipment. Hardware is available in 304 or 316 stainless steel for durability, and stainless steel load cells are rated IP68/IP69k for excellent ingress protection. OIML, NTEP, ATEX and FM approvals are all standard to ensure these modules meet your most stringent regulatory and processing requirements. To further expand their versatility, SWB805 MultiMount modules can be used with mixer tanks through addition of stabilization accessories that do not compromise the modules’ hygienic nature. Adding NSF-certified junction boxes and sealing accessories designed under EHEDG guidelines further facilitates easy installation and clean operations. In short, SWB805 MultiMount weigh modules are a unique and ideal solution for sensitive applications in the food and pharma industries where durability, accuracy and cleanliness are of paramount importance.
