iQ-R Process and Redundant CPU




The iQ-R Series now offers a fully integrated solution for advanced process and redundant control that is ideal for applications that require fault tolerance. A redundant system is configured by pairing an iQ-R Process CPU with a Redundant Function Module. This Redundant Function Module acts as a tracking module to ensure that both the main system and the standby system are identical. When an error occurs in the main system, control can be switched over to a standby system in less than 10 ms, avoiding costly consequences that are often paired with downtime. These controllers are fully configurable using GX Works3 programming software.

Precise inclination measurement





The TMS61 one-dimensional inclination sensor and the TMM61 two-dimensional inclination sensor are setting new standards with respect to size, flexibility, and performance. In their small, rugged plastic housings, the sensors offer excellent resolution and accuracy – what’s more, this is achieved over the entire measuring range and in an extremely wide range of ambient conditions. The CANopen interface enables a whole host of device parameters to be adapted, allowing the sensor to be perfectly tailored to the application. The new PGT-12-Pro handheld programming tool from SICK makes configuration much easier. As a result, the user is ready to go in just a few clicks and can cut out the time-consuming task of configuring the sensor via the control system.
