Banner Engineering SC26-2 Safety Controller Provides Flexible Programming Capabilities

Minneapolis, MN - Banner Engineering introduces the SC26-2 Programmable Safety Controller for PLC-level capability and control without the programming complexity and steep learning curve of traditional PLCs. Designed to be more flexible and easier to use than other small footprint safety controllers, the SC26-2 uses safety function blocks, Boolean logic functions and a user-friendly SC26-2 Safety Controller Provides Flexible Programming Capabilitiesprogramming environment for creating safety control logic.


With 26 input terminals and two redundant solid state safety outputs, safety system design engineers are able to easily monitor a variety of input devices, such as e-stop buttons, rope pulls, interlock switches, safety light curtains and other safety and non-safety input devices. The controller's free PC Graphical User Interface configuration software features pre-configured safety function blocks, including two-hand control, muting and enabling device to simplify application programming-and it includes a ladder logic diagram and a text based summary of the all of the input device and controller output settings.

"The SC26-2 Programmable safety controller offers eight input terminals that can be configured to monitor input device signals, source 24V dc or serve as IO status outputs, offering exceptional utility," said Tom McMonagle, Director of New Product Planning, Banner Engineering. "With intuitive programming and live display capability, the SC26-2 was designed for and vetted by customers who are working with fewer resources and need to save time."

The optional LCD displays IO status and actionable diagnostics like input fault information and device wiring details. This assists users during commissioning and enables faster troubleshooting to minimize machine downtime.

Ethernet models are also available and have an embedded Ethernet node that provides up to 64 virtual status outputs. The Ethernet IO registers automatically populate based on the configuration and can also be pared down or customized depending on application requirements. For larger scale applications, Banner will offer expandable models in the future, which will allow users to add up to eight additional IO modules.

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow has offered a Camera Link frame grabbers for almost 15 years. This latest offering, our 6th generation combines the power of CoaXPress with the requirements of Camera Link 2.0. Enabling a single or two camera system to operate at up to 850 MB/S per camera, the Axion-CL family is the best choice for CL frame grabber. Like the Cyton-CXP frame grabber, the Axion-CL leverages features such as the new StreamSync system, a highly optimized DMA engine, and expanded I/O capabilities that provide unprecedented flexibility in routing. There are two options available; Axion 1xE & Axion 2xE. The Axion 1xE is compatible with one base, medium, full or 80-bit camera offering PoCL, Power over Camera Link, on both connectors. The Axion 2xE is compatible with two base, medium, full or 80-bit cameras offering PoCL on both connectors for both cameras. The Axion-CL is a culmination of the continuous improvements and updates BitFlow has made to Camera Link frame grabbers.
