|Programmable logic controllers and HMI’s (Human Machine Interface) are essential in today’s modern manufacturing environment. Increasing automation processes and the demand to capture, distribute, and harness plant floor production information adds a level of complexity to the already overwhelming task of selecting the most appropriate technology for your application.
Ramco’s broad product offering of PLCs, industrial PC’s, software, and operator interfaces, plus extensive applications experience, enables us to be an invaluable resource. Now in its fifth decade, Ramco Innovations continues to build on its authorized base of manufacturers. Our valued relationships with them, coupled with our application experience, enables us to offer you engineering support, specialized training, and reliable service.
We've Got What You Need:
We carry quality products from leading manufacturers including:
Omron RFID Tracking
RFID Tags (IC tags) are attached to pallets for charge-discharge tests. The location of batteries in the pallet, product information, lot information, and inspection criteria for the lot are written to the RFID Tags (IC tags). In the test process, the test setup is changed based on this information. RFID Tags (IC tags) can also store process completion flags and instructions for the next process. After the charge-discharge tests are completed, sorting (ranking) information is written to the RFID Tag (IC tag). In the sorting (ranking) process, information in RFID Tags (IC tags) is read and automatically sorted by the robot.
We carry thousands of products from dozens of leading manufacturers. Here are some examples:
Red Lion G3 HMI's
Red Lion's G3 operator interface panels give you complete HMI functionality for PLCs, motor drives and other communications-capable devices. With Ethernet as standard on all G3 models, you can network-enable any serial devices connected to the panel.

Banner SureCross Wireless Products
The Banner® SureCross® Wireless System is an industrial wireless I/O network that can operate in extreme environments and eliminate the need for costly wiring. The most basic SureCross sensor network includes a Gateway system controller and one or more Nodes that monitor and/or control I/O in remote locations.
Nodes are deployed throughout a facility for gathering sensor data. This sensor data is then transmitted back to the Gateway. Installation is fast and easy with flexible mounting and power options. Some Nodes must be powered by 10 to 30V dc, whereas FlexPower® Nodes may be powered by solar panels or battery packs, often with a multi-year battery life while also providing power for external sensors.

Turck BL67 Modular I/O System
The BL67 modular concept is a very flexible approach to connectorized I/O. The system is made up of a gateway for network interface, electronic modules for I/O signals, and base modules for connectorization. The gateway provides communication between the fieldbus and the I/O modules. I/O modules are not dependent on the fieldbus protocol. The DIN-rail or frame mountable base modules are available witheurofast®, minifast® and picofast® connectors. The electronic modules are hot swappable. The system supports multiple networks and a wide variety of I/O signals in a rugged housing.
