New CPUs Designed for use in Dedicated PLCs
A CNC CPU module and a robot control CPU now complement the existing options for analogue and digital I/O, motion, positioning, process control, safety and networking, delivering a unique solution that integrates the full suite of control and automation processes onto one common platform. Providing a complete automation system on a single PLC backplane, the modules provide control capabilities with reduced I/O processing times. Furthermore, direct integration with the PLC along with recent SIL2 (safety integrity level) certification helps to reduce total operation cycle times and guarantee performance levels and provides an ideal foundation for smart manufacturing as part of the journey towards Industry 4.0.
