Gefran will participate in the tenth edition of SPS Italia, an event dedicated to technologies serving digital transformation, which is returning live and in person from 24 to 26 May (Hall 3, Stand F007). Visitors will be welcomed with a stand full of new products touching on the Company’s four Business Units: sensors, industrial process control systems, electric drives and automation components.
SPS is the ideal setting to present the new smart devices with IO-Link based architecture, the open protocol that is very much on the increase in industrial automation, enabling digital communication from field level upwards. The GR single-phase, solid-state relay series stands out here. It is a scalable platform with incremental performance and integrated diagnostics for controlling electrical resistances in industrial heating.
The three-day event will also include a preview of TWIIST, the innovative position transducer, the first of its kind, with a patented system for measuring based on the 3-dimensional Hall Effect. TWIIST will be available in multivariable versions with digital CANopen and IO-Link output and in monovariable version with analogue output. Thanks to these unique features, TWIIST can be used in many industrial and mobile hydraulics sectors, where advanced safety functions can be implemented.
For a further look at the future of Smart Connected Factories, SPS will be an opportunity to discover G-Vision, the new Gefran multitouch capacitive Panel PCs Platform, UL certified with integrated Web Server and 4.0 connectivity to communicate with all the main fieldbus protocols.
On the Drives&Motion side, Gefran will present two inverter lines: ADV200-SP for pumping systems with photovoltaic power supply and ADL500 for civil lifting. Solutions that testify to Gefran Drives&Motion’s willingness to differentiate its technological development capacity, focusing on increasingly green and evolved sectors, both from the point of view of system control and smart communication.
