With the new Kuhnke FIO Controller 113 PLC, Kendrion Kuhnke Automation has developed a powerful and highly flexible system solution, which combines the functionality of a PC with the price level of an PLC. Thanks to an energy-efficient and powerful processor generation, this embedded PC solution for the DIN rail sets new standards in its class.
Kuhnke FIO Controller 113 is exactly what the name indicates: a modular PLC with scalable functionality and connectivity. The superior modularity of this solution is based upon the dockable EtherCAT®-ready modules of the Kuhnke FIO series. These highly integrated digital or analogue I/O modules can be plugged directly onto the PLC. Using a FIO bus coupler, it is also possible to place them decentrally and connect them via EtherCAT®. The range of modules includes counters, temperature detectors, communications interfaces and drive controls. They equip Kuhnke FIO Controller 113 for just about any control function. Besides a SD memory card, the system includes a serial, USB, LAN and CANopen interface. The system is equipped with an integrated web server and can be programmed via CODESYS Version 3. The Windows® Embedded CE 6.0 operating system supports the implementation of a variety of additional functions. The visualization units of the Kuhnke Vico range allow the realization of scalable, custom designed and decentralized control and display solutions with display sizes between 4“ and 15“.
