User authentication is an integral part of security frameworks, but it also happens to be most susceptible to factors that are beyond system designer’s control, introducing security risks, having a secure and reliable way of login is paramount.
Cast your mind back to 20th November 1993, Meatloaf was topping the chart with “I’d do anything for love (but I won’t do that)”, but, far more importantly, it’s when Maria started at Lamonde. 1993 was a year before PLC Direct (now Automation Direct) was founded and two years before Weintek was established and Control Techniques, now 50, were only 20 – a sense of perspective.
Having been on the market for many years, the specification and features of Weintek’s eMT Series have been become less able to meet the latest demands, their technology is outdated by today’s standards, and more importantly, certain critical components are no longer available, hence the reason for this end of life announcement.
AutomationDirect has released a new version of the CLICK PLC programming software – version 3.30, which allows any CLICK PLUS CPU to be configured as a 3-axis PTO/PWM motion controller.
AutomationDirect has added a low-cost CODESYS PLC solution for those who prefer CODESYS programming. CODESYS is the most widely used manufacturer-independent IEC 61131-3 development system on the market, and the new P2CDS-622 CPU features a CODESYS engine housed in a Productivity2000 controller form factor. This CPU offers plenty of communication capabilities and works seamlessly with low-cost Productivity2000 I/O modules.
New from Automation Direct, SOLO modular temperature controllers feature a modular snap-together design that allows users to add additional controllers as needed. Each controller can be configured with a different control mode and output type, making it possible to tailor a system to the application’s specific requirements. These modular temperature controllers offer the same functionality as the SOLO standard controllers but at a lower price.
Since the release of capacitive touch HMIs, Weintek have released 10.1″, 15″, and 15.6″ capacitive models, addressing market demands. To expand this product line, Weintek is delighted to announce the release of the new 7″ capacitive HMI: cMT3072XP, to complement the current cMT X Series offerings.
Despite its compact design, the iR-ETN40P combines couplers with digital high-speed inputs and outputs while retaining the flexibility of adding additional I/O modules. Adopting iR-ETN40P will not only streamline the establishment and integration of your automated control systems but also does so in a cost-effective manner.
The SICK FTMg range of Flow Sensors support a number of protocols including an OPC UA* Server and MQTT, in this TechTip we’ll be looking at getting data from a FTMG-ESD20AXX compressed air sensor using OPC UA.
This TechTip is an example of how to make a Login popup appear when a protected object is touched and then auto-close the popup upon successful Login or Logout.
This TechTip is about using a Weintek HMI as a large digit display with numbers bigger than the permitted “255” for a numeric object. In order to achieve this, we’ll split the number into ones, tens, hundreds and thousands using modulo operations in a macro and use the resulting digits with word lamps.
In this TechTip, we’re looking at using dynamic limits in numeric objects, alarm colours, and using a macro to calculate the limits based on a +/- tolerance.
