High performance at minimum space: The new CODESYS V3 programmable embedded PC and the related I/O modules of the Kuhnke FIO range save space inside the switching cabinet. Besides compact modules with PLC function Kendrion Kuhnke also presents a wide range of highly integrated IO extension modules with up to 32 I/O connectors on one terminal block. Separate pluggable clamps allow fast wiring and support easy exchange or advance configuration.
The modular system can be used as independent PLC or as a de-centralized EtherCAT® I/O unit. EtherCAT® provides fast communication between modules and the Fieldbus infrastructure connected to the system. The Ethernet protocol with 100 MB/s remains active until each individual module. This means there is no time loss due to any complex protocol conversion, resulting in a system that allows real time functionality with fast response times and superior synchronization due to „distributed clock“ signals.
Due to the openness and a wide range of modules this universal automation solution combines a high level of flexibility with minimum space requirements for many industrial applications. The individually adaptable Kuhnke FIO system is the preferred choice for applications calling for the control of small drives or requiring an electronic cam control. It is also ideal for customer-specific on-site processing of process data.
