When functions have to be retrofitted on a plant, modifications to the hardware configuration and program expansions normally involve considerable costs. The universal modules of Eaton's SmartWire-DT communication system now offer a very simple solution for these requirements.
In light of the anticipated increased use of lightweight materials and high-strength steels in automobile production, Hetal-Werke has resolved to devote attention to new joining concepts as the ATP® TriPress components from Arnold Umformtechnik that reduces assembly times by 75%.
As one of the leading manufacturers of components and systems for electrical engineering and automation, Eatons Electrical Sector is now offering new input/output modules for SmartWire-DT. New input/output modules can now be connected to the SmartWire-DT connection and communication system. A 4-channel input module with a 3-wire connection and integrated short-circuit proof power supply, as well as an 8-channel output module (8 *24VDC, 0.5A) have been added to the range of digital modules.
