Weidmüller will be attending the PPMA, the premier UK machinery exhibition being held at the NEC in Birmingham from 25–27 September. Specialist staff will be on hand to demonstrate the new Weidmüller Industrial Ethernet Router along with a range of infrastructure components, enabling data communication between Ethernet-enabled devices in industrial automation. Leave behind your business card, and you could also be in with a chance to win a GPS satellite navigation system.

The new Industrial Ethernet Router ensures that different networks interoperate in unison and with top-level security. It enables access to components from around the world through encrypted VPNs using OpenVPN as well as IPSec technologies, thus ensuring top-level security with minimum effort. The firewall has configurable filter functions that adapt automatically to the network traffic it sees.

On the stand, visitors will also be able to see developments in Weidmüller technology and discuss their specific needs with our industry experts. Highlights include:

Sensor Actuator Interfaces and Accessories – for capturing and transmitting digital and analogue process signals to higher-level control systems, plus industrial connectors and components, focusing on field applications with high IP protection classes.

Electronics components - including power supplies to supply power to applications in industrial and process automation. Relay and SSR modules for switching, amplifying, separating or converting digital signals between field devices and the controller, the new Termseries, Termopto and MicroOpto will also be on show. In addition visitors can view analogue signal conditioners for capturing, normalising and monitoring analogue process signals in both standard and hazardous area applications. Lightning and surge protection devices will be on display to help increase machine reliability and a range of PLC interfaces, the quick reliable and flexible way to wire automation signals to the controller.
