ELECylinder Expands Product Offering
Simplifying switching from air to electric actuators
New type ELECYLINDER® electric actuators have been added to the series: small type, high rigidity type, splash-proof and side-mounted motor .

The easy ELECylinder is designed for simplicity from start-up to maintenance. Speed / Acceleration settings can be set in just 5 minutes. No time-consuming programming is necessary. You can also operate it with ON / OFF signals, like a solenoid valve. No time-consuming programming is necessary.

  • Start and end points can be set at any value
  • Battery-less absolute encoder means no maintenance required
  • Built-in controller requires no control panel space
  • Reduces electric bills, the higher the operational frequency, the greater the savings

IO-Link Signal Towers
Installs and configures seamlessly through IO-Link interface
PATLITE’s LR6-IL IO-Link signal tower  visualizes sensor information. Corresponding to the worldwide standardized IO-Link technology, this signal tower enables you to communicate with sensors and actuators. 
The M12 connector makes installing and replacing easy. The visual information is customizable by choosing up to 5 LEDs in colored calottes or one multicolor LED. With a protection rating of IP65, the LR6-IL is suitable for use in areas with splash water and dust.
The LR6-IL is also compatible with PATLITE’s WD system, which enables wireless data transmission. The Wireless Data Acquisition System is a cost-effective, IIoT-enabled add-on which allows signal towers to wirelessly transmit equipment status changes to a host PC for real-time monitoring and data analysis.

Bi-Directional Inductive Coupler with IO-Link
Non-contact data and power transmission
Inductive coupler systems are now indispensable in many applications. With their non-contact transmission of data and power, they have replaced the once popular plug-in contacts.

The  new BIC Q40 inductive coupler delivers power up to 1.7 A for an output up to 40 W of power – that is three times that of common couplers on the market. Data transmission between the IO-Link device and IO-Link master is transparent, with no configuration of the IO-Link coupler necessary. Bi-directional communication means you can control actuators and valve terminals at the same time while also collecting signals.
