B&R now offers the X2X+ backplane bus as an option, increasing the performance of the X20 system by a factor of four. And because all existing X20 I/O modules are already compatible with X2X+, all it takes to build more powerful machines are bus modules. The advantages of this new bus are particularly apparent in applications that involve many I/O modules or high data volume but where short cycle times are imperative.
AutomationDirect has added new Socomec modular Midget and CC Class fuse holders to aid with the completion of overcurrent protection circuits in industrial systems.

They are offered with up to a 30A capacity and a 200kA interrupt rating for CC Class fuse holders, and a 100kA interrupt rating for Midget Class fuse holders.
Pepperl+Fuchs Introduces KFU8-SR-EX Switch Amplifiers with Wide-Range Supply for Intrinsically Safe Applications and Functional Safety up to SIL 2
Pepperl+Fuchs recently introduced the new KFU8-SR-EX universal powered switch amplifier, which can be used in intrinsically safe applications and functional safety up to SIL 2. The new KFU8 can be supplied with 19 V DC to 30 V DC or 90 V AC to 253 V AC, making the new switch amplifier family from Pepperl+Fuchs a true standout. With this functionality, a single device can be used with various supply voltages. This frequently applies to a variety of applications, such as machine building and devices installed in a field box. As a result, fewer components need to be kept in stock and in the field technician’s toolbox.
AutomationDirect now offers Cat6a industrial Ethernet cables from Murrelektronik. These shielded cables include an M12 X-coded connection on one end and an RJ45 connection on the other. The X-coded designation is commonly used with industrial vision systems. These high-flex industrial Ethernet cables are available in lengths up to 5m with transmission speed capability up to 10Gbps. These cables have a TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) jacket that is flame-retardant and chemical resistant.
The extended SKINTOP MINI range includes two- to seven-millimeter diameter glands, allowing system designers to obtain protective, secure seals for their small-diameter cables while reducing cable density in their networked devices. LAPP’s SKINTOP MINI cable glands are ideal for the medical device, pharmaceutical and automotive manufacturing industries.
Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. has recently released its MELSOFT Gemini 3D Simulator Software to allow users to expedite the design and construction of manufacturing projects as they introduce new automation components to their facility. By connecting to a variety of software and factory devices, Gemini provides visualization, simulation, and the streamlining of work processes.
Why pay for HMI and PLC products separately when you can save on cost and space by using a single, self-contained solution? This was CIMON’s philosophy when designing the Xpanel Hybrid: convenience, reliability, and practicality. Based on decades of knowledge and experience in the automation industry, CIMON has combined two of their most popular devices into one convenient package.
