For the automation of functions in working machines it is necessary to implement the safe and reliable detection of different states, the interaction with the operator and the management of the resulting control and regulation tasks of these machine functions.
With the product groups out of STW's portfolio all automation jobs can be realized. For this STW offers a wide range of central and compact control systems with 16- and 32-bit processors.
Central control systems are used for the central control of complex machines and the decentralized control of complex machine parts. In addition they work as the central node for the connection of operator and display terminals, of decentral control units and of additional I/O units via BUS systems. It goes without saying that a direct or BUS-based connection of sensors and actors via the interfaces of the central unit is possible, too.
Compact control units can be found in more simple machine or for the decentralized control of complex machines.
STW's 32-bit control units are complemented by proven and established 16-bit platforms.
The control units of the two families are capable of supporting safety-relevant applications and reach SIL 2 according to IEC 61508 and PL d according to DIN EN ISO13489.
