Turck TBEN-L-RFID Module w/ PLC Capabilities

To streamline RFID integration and data processing in HF and UHF applications, Turck introduces its TBEN-L-RFID interface module with PLC capabilities via CODESYS. This compact module’s controller function can filter and pre-process RFID data and link to broader control operations, enabling high-speed dynamic or multi-tag RFID applications.The TBEN-L-RFID’s design makes this module ideal for retrofitting RFID applications. An IP67 rating allows its use outside the cabinet, and actuators and sensors can be connected with HF and UHF RFID read/write heads simultaneously. These features reduce the installation and wiring efforts that are required for industrial identification solutions.“This device expands on the …

Carlo Gavazzi RSGD Soft Starters

Carlo Gavazzi is proud to announce the launch of the new compact, 45mm wide RSGD Series Soft Starter. The RSGD is an easy to use soft-starter for 3-phase induction AC motors, needing just three settings. The self-learning algorithm adjusts the soft starter parameters to work with different applications and varying load conditions. It is active at every start to ensure that the motor always starts with the optimal settings. New current balancing algorithm keeps the current unbalance to less than 15%.The RSGD Series offers an option for Class 10 electronic overload, providing advanced motor protection and resulting in further space …
