FT FEB2016-HR 31 LOGIX Rockwell Automation has expanded its Allen- Bradley ControlLogix family of controllers to enable faster system performance and support the growing use of smart devices in manufacturing and industrial operations. The new ControlLogix 5580 controller provides up to 45 percent more application capacity and includes an embedded 1-gigabyte Ethernet port to support high-performance communications, I/O and applications with up to 256 axes of motion. In addition, the product selection process is easier with the ControlLogix 5580 controller because users can now select the appropriate model using the total number of Ethernet nodes required. A single ControlLogix 5580 controller can support up to 300 Ethernet nodes. SPRING RETRACTABLE HOSE REELS NOW SAFER Spring retractable hose reels have made a significant difference to the health and safety of Australasian workers across a wide range of industries. No longer a trip hazard, businesses find accident claims for trips and falls caused by industrial hoses are significantly reduced after these reels are installed. Tecpro has released a safety brake system to slowdown the speed of hose reel retraction. Their Brake can be used in most applications and has earned FDA approval for use in the food industry. Ituses a compact, adjustable pawl locking mechanism that attaches to their Spring Retractable Hose Reels.
