The Ethernet-capable controls of the samos® PRO COMPACT modules now have integrated three complete industrial protocols (PROFINET IO, EtherNet/IP and Modbus TCP). The major advantage to the user is that no additional module is required for PROFINET IO, EtherNet/IP or Modbus TCP communication, thus saving costs and space in the switch cabinet. There are also corresponding Gateway modules available for the PROFIBUS DP, CANopen and EtherCAT field buses.
Communication project planning is realised via samos® PLAN6, the graphic programming tool from Wieland Electric. Thanks to the intuitive Gateway configuration menu, the planning for the respective network integration is simplified.
Remote maintenance of the respective machines or systems is possible at all times via the integrated Ethernet interface and VPN access. Wieland Electric also offers perfectly matching products and services in the form of its wienet routers and Wie-Service24.com.
