Join us on Social Media HOSE ASSEMBLY, ELECTRICAL INDUSTRIES LOOK TO ID TAGGING FOR TRACEABILITY 25 January 2016 The electrical, hose and general installation industries are demanding identification systems that are easy to read and install in order to allow for the traceability of hose or similar product. The Easy Read system from Band-It offers increased peace of mind that all installations are tagged effectively. The benefit of having product marked clearly once out in the marketplace has become increasingly important, comments Banding & Identification (ID) Solutions Africa Sales Representative Matthew Campbell. “Major players in the power utility, petrochemical and hose-assembly industries deem the tagging of any installations or assembly to be essential.” In addition, such tags must be able to withstand highly-corrosive environments. This is where Easy Read from Band-It comes into its own, as all the characters, carriers, strips and cable ties comprising the system are manufactured from Grade 316 stainless steel. Explaining how the system operates, Campbell says the characters are simply slid onto the carrier or strip in the necessary configuration, which is then installed using a Band-It stainless-steel tie. Alternatively, the characters can be slid directly onto a 10 mm or smaller cable tie, thereby creating a self-contained 'wrap' tag. Letters, numbers and symbols for the Easy Read system are available in bags of ten or 100, as well as in Easy Read kits. The product is available from Banding & ID Solutions Africa, the local distributor for Band-It of the US. “This is a robust and long-lasting tagging system that is easy to install, and which can be read clearly in all environments. An added benefit is that no specialised tooling is needed, which also means no special training is required,” Campbell highlights. All of the letters, numbers and symbols are pre-punched and readycut for quick installation. The visibility of the tags in dim or low-light environments, as well as inaccessible spaces, can be enhanced further by using special colour-coated carriers or strips. “We can even assemble tags according to specific requirements,” Campbell concludes.

GHM MESSTECHNIK INTRODUCES GHM ONE INDUSTRIAL CONTROLLER WITH INDUSTRY 4.0 PROGRAMMING GHM Messtechnik has introduced GHM ONE, its latest industrial controller that offers their customers an Industry 4.0 programme platform as well as free Configuration Application Tool (CAT) software. Managing Director of GHM Messtechnik SA, Jan Grobler said “Industry is currently in the process of a changeover towards Industry 4.0 and the associated necessary changes of production processes. It is the task of control and feedback control technology to embrace and support this trend and provide the user with devices and systems that implement the required changes quickly. Our GHM ONE multi-function platform embraces this new trend via its modern and innovative concept for measuring, controlling, computing, data recording and closed-loop control, and the CAT software is freely supplied to our customers.” · Up to 8 internal analogue inputs · Up to 4 internal analogue outputs · Up to 12 internal digital inputs and outputs · 4 relay outputs as standard The hardware concept offers a modular communications card with the possibility of connecting external I/O or other fieldbus participants using fieldbus systems such as Modbus TCP, Modbus RTU and CanOpen. Interfaces are available for the PLC and SCADA system level and the MSR 9696H offers Profinet, Profibus DP, Modbus TCP and Modbus RTU as possible connections. “With these technological advances now incorporated, the MSR 9696H is Industry 4.0 compliant” said Grobler. “GHM Messtechnik is renowned for their forward thinking and investment into research and development in order to keep abreast of evolving technology. Our MSR 9696H enables ideas to be put into practice quickly and simply; offers advanced control technology, profiling and data recording suited to heat treatment shops, curing processes, sterilisers, biological growth processes and tempering systems; individual operating and monitoring concepts as well as making commissioning and testing a quick and easy function” concluded Grobler. GHM Messtechnik South Africa is part of GHM Messtechnik GmbH, an amalgamation of globally renowned companies comprising: Greisinger Electronic, Honsberg Instruments, Martens Elektronik, Imtron, T & A Telemetry & Automation and Delta Ohm. GHM Further information is available from: Jan Grobler, Managing Director GHM Messtechnik South Africa Tel : 011 902 0158 email : Vist us at the Secunda Roadshow - 16 March Simplicity of Application The GHM ONE platform provides process technicians with the possibility of effectively putting their ideas in the area of automation and visualization into practice without having programming knowledge. The platform is the ideal basis for applications in areas such as: industrial furnaces, laboratory ovens, heat treatment plants, micro-breweries, dryers, test stands, building automation, climate control and pasteurization systems. THE MSR 9696H, THE FIRST NEW GENERATION MULTI-FUNCTION DEVICE The first multi-function unit with this platform is the MSR 9696H. It is pre-loaded with innovative hardware and software technologies. It enables users to implement ideas without being deterred by programming languages or battling with limitless depths of visualization systems. The MSR 9696H is different to the normal automation devices because it offers far reaching possibilities such as: · Implementing measurement, control and closed loop control concepts and ideas without the requirement of programming skills for the user · Creating operating and monitoring concepts entirely without knowledge in the area of control systems or SCADA technology · Comprises CAT software The controller comprises: · 3.5” TFT graphic colour touch display · Standard ¼ DIN housing (96mm x 96mm) 11
