MQTT Protocol Support Added to Productivity Series CPUs EDS File Library Added to Productivity Suite Programming Software

DCS MQTT Protocol Support Added to Productivity Sereis CPUs Automation Direct 2 400

April 12, 2022

 

The Productivity family of controllers now offers the MQTT protocol for connections to cloud computing platforms. MQTT has become the front-runner for many machine-to-machine (M2M) and IIoT/cloud networking applications, due to its lightweight overhead and reduced bandwidth consumption. Productivity PLCs now support MQTT communication and with the fill-in-the-blank MQTT messaging configurations within Productivity Suite, delivering vital data to advanced cloud computing platforms is easy.

The Electronic Data Sheet (EDS) file library offers a powerful way to organize and sort your EDS files when configuring EtherNet/IP communications – automatically group by device type or vendor and manage versions. AutomationDirect.com EtherNet/IP EDS files come already installed for added convenience.

Programmable controllers come in many form factors and levels of hardware options and software capabilities. Productivity controllers combine compact, modular, rack-based or stackable hardware with advanced tag name-based programming. Multiple built-in communications ports, OLED/LCD displays and a secure web server are valuable features of the Productivity series.

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
