Process Control S-MAX 406 CE Controller Adds Profinet
When it comes to adding specialized functions such as visualization to the standard tasks of controllers, PC-based solutions are the perfect choice, says Phoenix Contact.
The company’s S-Max Controller, a high-end system for controlling, operating, monitoring, and communicating, has been upgraded with Profinet technology and now offers a Profinet I/O controller in addition to the Interbus Master. The PLC and fieldbus functions can be programmed universally using PC Worx automation software, while the visualization function can be created using the ProVisIT software tool. The S-MAX 406 CE PN controller is available with a 6.4“color TFT display with touch screen. Thanks to its high level of performance, this high-end system can also carry out a wide range of control tasks quickly and reliably, says the company. The controller can be used in mechanical and plant engineering, in building automation, and in the water and wastewater treatment sectors.
