Fieldbus components

Gateway

The "pure" gateway with a very good price/performance ratio. Consequently cost-optimised without losing the proven benefits of the controller e family, such as robust metal housing and operation / diagnosis via the backlit display.

Controller E

The controller e family, the flagship of the intelligent AS-i gateways, excels due to its integrated plc for quick signal processing and relief of higher-level controllers. Connection to all common fieldbusses and easy configuration facilitate setup. The integrated operating display and the robust metal housing are more reasons for positive customer feedback.

Field modules

Compact, sturdy and – using standardised M12 connections for sensors and actuators – quickly integrated into the machine, with no need for a control cabinet, this module is the top choice. Moreover, the corresponding GSD file provides a full and unambiguous description of the unit type characteristics in a precisely defined format.

Software

CoDeSys is used as the programming software for the controller e family. This is a standard programming environment to IEC 61131-3, supported by renowned automation companies in the Automation Alliance (CAA). This provides the customer with a hardware-independent platform for programming of different intelligent units. The software includes all common programming languages such as LD, FBD, IL, structured text and sequential function chart as well as a freely programmable visualisation.
