Panel Builder System Integrator

November 11, 2020

The new version 6.0 of the REMOTE HMI firmware for Thin Clients from R. STAHL has been tailored to meet the current requirements for virtual network structures in the process industry. As a closed system based on WINDOWS 10 IoT, the firmware meets the highest security standards and supports all major protocols for remote control and process monitoring that are relevant in the fields of the industrial Internet of Things, virtualized server structures and cloud automation.

The firmware can handle RDP and VNC with an automatic re-connect for fail-safe, flexible access to virtual, real or cloud-based workstations from each HMI station in hazardous as well as industrial areas. Individual workstations that are not connected to the process network can be integrated via KVM-over-IP. The multi-monitor mode can be used to spread process information over up to six monitors. The automatic diagnosis function spots network or host failure and, depending on the available hardware, switches to back-up servers via the teaming function.

In addition to pre-installed Windows Defender virus protection, a HORM and a UWF filter for drive protection and fast start of system files further protect system integrity. Individual USB ports can be locked or unlocked via USB lockdown. The latest firmware version features a new option where all Thin Clients in the network can be configured, maintained and upgraded from a central workstation via the Remote HMI Device Manager. Central features such as network test, diagnosis functions or the establishment of remote connections are available in the main menu via one-click or one-touch.

The expanded dashboard view shows basic system information such as basic settings, connection status and the activated user roles. R. STAHL has adapted the new REMOTE HMI firmware for screen resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA) up to 2560 x 2048 (QSXGA). Brightness and calibration can be individually adjusted, and the touch function can be deactivated for cleaning purposes. The manufacturer has adjusted the license management such that all of the functions described are contained in the basic version. The expanded PRO version furthermore features an intuitive App concept with self-explanatory symbols and brief informative texts. Its multi-session mode maintains all connections in the background and ensures that the log-on process does not have to be re-started. The license for the PRO version can be obtained retrospectively at the Thin Client or via the Remote HMI Device Manager.

The Automated Future of Material Removal

The Automated Future of Material RemovalAutomating a deburring or surface finishing application is a smart, responsible, and effective way to improve a manufacturing process. There is a serious need for the automation of manual material removal and deburring tasks to help improve employees’ health, combat manufacturing labor shortages, and increase product consistency and quality.

The historical roadblocks for automated material removal are melting away as return on investment gets faster, more integrators and manufacturers cultivate hands-on experience, and technology advances to make processes easier.

When To Use Multi-Function Safety Relays

Multi-Function Safety RelaysBy Lenny Filipkowski, Product Manager, Industrial Components, AutomationDirect

Many machines and robots require safety circuits to stop all or part of operation in the event of an emergency. Safety circuits are also used to keep all or part of a machine or robot from running while there is human activity in close proximity, either for normal operations or maintenance.

These safety circuits are typically configured using safety relays, or a safety-rated PLC or other safety-rated controller. But in many cases, multi-function safety relays are a better option (Figure 1). A multi-function safety relay is a configurable device with multiple inputs and outputs.

Williams Advanced Engineering, Aerofoil Energy and Inovo Join Forces on New Robotic Test Programme to Improve Supermarket Fridge Efficiency

Williams Advanced EngineeringWilliams Advanced Engineering (WAE), Aerofoil Energy and Inovo Robotics are working together on an innovative new R&D programme that uses robots to further improve the energy efficiency of supermarket fridges.

Based at WAE’s site in Grove, Oxfordshire, the pioneering new initiative sees Inovo’s collaborative robots – called ‘cobots’ – repeatedly opening and closing the doors of test fridges to emulate real-world supermarket trading conditions. These fridges feature the revolutionary F1-inspired Aerofoil shelf edge technology along with Aerofoil Energy’s new “Vortex” energy efficient fridge technologies.
