 Press Releases

  • MINNEAPOLIS, MN— Turck, a manufacturer of sensors, connectivity and fieldbus technology for factory and process automation, today announced it will showcase its Weld Slag Resistant Aramid M12 cordsets at Fabtech.

    Turck’s new aramid jacketed M12 cordsets are the ideal solution for tough welding applications. These cables are protected by an aramid over-braid (comparable to Kevlar®), which safeguards the inner jacket and conductors from short circuits due to weld sparks and weld slag buildup.

    The cable is capable of tolerating short-term temperature spikes of up to 200 °C. The integrated aramid over-braid eliminates any additional installation time that would typically be required with other commonly used protective weld sleeves. Since the over-braid is retained by the overmolded plug body, it is also significantly more secure than other sleeve types. The intricate weave of the over-braid eliminates any potential gaps in protection, reduces catch points with moving parts, and is capable of a smaller bend radius, resulting in a less bulky solution that saves space in the welding cell. The aramid cordsets are also an excellent choice for motion applications, with over 3 million cycles of flex testing with no signs of degradation.

    Turck’s aramid jacketed M12 cordsets are available in 3-, 4-, and 5-pin A-coded M12 straight and right-angled cordsets and splitters.

  • TX700 family provides visualization and control for machine tools applications

    MINNEAPOLIS, MN— Turck, a manufacturer of sensors, connectivity and fieldbus technology for factory and process automation, today announced it will showcase its programmable TX700 series of HMI/PLCs with available communication interfaces ranging from Modbus RTU to OPC-UA and support for a variety of industrial Ethernet fieldbuses, making them ideal for modern automation systems in a wide range of industries.

    The TX700 family uses multicore processors at an operating frequency of 800 MHz and a modern Linux based platform. This makes it possible to implement complex control tasks and visualizations. The TX700’s all-glass capacitive touch display provides intuitive operation with gesture control similar to that used in smartphones, increasing flexibility.

    With their range of interfaces, the TX700 units offer versatile use for visualization and control in distributed applications such as at conveyors and other automated applications. Alarm and system visualization is easy, and overall system complexity is reduced through the single device functioning as both the HMI interface and logic controller.

    Thanks to three separate Ethernet ports, users can physically separate communication to cloud or office IT networks from the machine control network. This ensures reliable PLC operation and enables switch functions to be implemented to support line topology with Ethernet. A Sub-D connector for serial communication, an SD card slot as well as two USB ports complete the range of physical interfaces.

    Turck’s TX700 devices are available in display sizes of 5, 7, 10, 15 and 21 inches.
