CANplc-Transceiver

Thanks to this compact PLC controller with integrated radio control industrial as well as mobile equipment can be operated easily. Due to the sophisticated modular technology various applications can be realized in an extremely flexible manner.

The system has all common communication channels such as digital and analog in- and outputs, bluetooth, wireless LAN and bus systems like CANopen or Ethernet. The transceiver can be implemented as a CAN controller with I/O-module in a CAN network or as a self-sufficient and intelligent PLC.

The manufacturer-independent automation software Codesys offers simple possibilities of programming the system. By means of the integrated foil keyboard and the display commands can be executed directly and data of the machine can be indicated without an additional control panel.

Extreme compactness and easy mounting characterize this device.

As a complete solution together with radio remote or cable controls the CANplc transceiver contributes in a high degree to more operational safety as the information flow of commands and machine status takes place at the same time on a bidirectional way.
