      • SmartWire-DT®: The Communication and Connection System for Your Entire System

      • With SmartWire-DT, Eaton has heralded in a new era of connectivity between individual switchgear and controllers. SmartWire-DT not only replaces the control circuit wiring for all the components inside a machine's control panel, but also extends this flexibility to elements such as sensors. This way, SmartWire-DT makes it perfectly possible for a system's central controller and moving components to communicate with each other continuously and directly. In addition, the fact that this eliminates the need for previously required PLC inputs/outputs and control wiring saves signifi-cant space, making the use of more compact control panels possible.

        The SmartWire-DT communication system can be used anywhere where switchgear, sensors, and actuators are at work. And the advantages it holds over competing solutions quickly become clear during installation, operation, and further expansion down the line. Large data volumes, a length of up to 600 m, and flexible options for connecting to field buses from virtually any PLC manufacturer are just a few of the characteristics that make SmartWire-DT the ideal system for an extremely wide range of applications.

      • XV HMI/PLC: Systematic Visualization and Control

      • With the XV HMI-PLC touch panels Eaton is offering customers in the machine and system building sector a systematically coordinated range that can be integrated perfectly into different performance classes. The smart implementation of the PLC runtime into a slim and efficient embedded platform strategy in combination with powerful processors creates a state-of-the-art, scalable and cost-efficient automation concept. The openness of the system is demonstrated in the use of the CODESYS programming standard and the possibility to access over 100 protocols as an HMI. Display sizes from 3.5" to 15", device versions in plastic, metal or stainless steel, as well as the possibility of use with particularly robust infra-red touch technology make a wide range of solutions possible.

        • Implement Efficient Signaling and See Your Equipment's Availability Soar

        • Signal towers are just as essential to the smooth and safe operation of machines and systems as they are at airports and supermarkets. More-over, the tasks they have to perform are as varied as the locations where they have to be used. This is why Eaton has designed its signal towers in such a way as to be able to accommodate extremely versatile light and acoustic modules. On top of this, their high IP66 degree of protection ensures that they can be used virtually anywhere. Ship classifications and CCC are currently pending.

          In terms of signaling systems, light intensity and signal strength are as crucial to a system's efficiency as are the speed and ease with which complete towers can be assembled and disassembled, e.g., in order to transport a machine.

          Moreover, this efficiency can be increased even further by effectively inte-grating signal towers into an automation solution. Within this context, a SmartWire-DT connection not only significantly reduces wiring complexity, but also considerably enhances a system's communication capabilities. Intelligent switchgear can send alarm messages through the system – when, for example, overloading is imminent – in order to avoid stops and down-times. Following these signals, signal towers can output their own clearly recognizable signals, thus ensuring higher machine and system availability.

        • Movements Safely Under Control Detect Positions Mechanically, Optically and Inductively

        • Wherever exact positioning is required, safety/position switches from Eaton with positively opening contacts are used. They are equipped with Cage Clamp or screw terminals and are available with metal and insulated enclosures. Their large connection area ensures that they can be wired quickly. Easy to fit and flexible operating heads are a further feature. Safety-door switches and safety position switches protect persons and processes. They are used to ensure that protective doors are safely locked and ensure a safe shutdown.

          A variety of sensors makes it possible to use inductive, capacitive, or photoelectric object detection as necessary. These sensors are available in AC and DC versions, as well as in various cubic and tubular designs that make it easy to adapt to any type of location. One of the main highlights of this range consists of the programmable iProx series, which can be easily configured for any application at hand. In fact, E59 iProx can be used to replace a wide variety of standard sensors, e.g., when a replacement is necessary due to servicing.

          • SASY 60i busbar system provides highest efficiency in the control panel

          • SASY 60i – safety and reliability in a single product: SASY 60i is a comprehensive UL-certified solution for switching, controlling, protecting, and distributing power that is designed for use with motor-protective circuit-breakers and molded-case circuit-breakers.
            More specifically, the SASY 60i modular busbar system has been designed for efficient power distribution in control panels. And thanks to its busbar adapter, feeder and outgoing circuit-breakers can be quickly and easily mounted directly on its busbar system while saving space.

            On top of this, the SASY 60i system's double-T profiled DIN busbars reduce the amount of work required in order to prepare contact points. In addition, they combine an extremely high rated peak withstand current with a small number of busbar supports, meaning that they take full advantage of every inch of control cabinet space available. The large surface of the busbar profile allows optimum heat dissipation.
