Product description

Remote Field Controllers for Ethernet networks

When it comes to distributed, modular automation, Remote Field Controllers (RFC) with IEC 61131 control system intelligence and network connection are the ideal solution. Remote Field Controllers are compact, industrial PCs that provide networked, PC-based control performance on site with DIN rail mounting.

Integrated Ethernet connection

The integrated Ethernet network connection (via twisted pair) ensures Ethernet connectivity, an increasingly important factor.

The "DIN rail PCs" can be reached via Ethernet and TCP/IP by means of remote operation. Programming, operation, and visualization via the network enable innovative and cost-effective automation solutions.

When using the INTERBUS OPC server, standardized coupling with various visualization packages is also available via Ethernet.

IEC 61131 controller performance

Remote Field Controllers are based on the international PC/104 standard for embedded PC systems. All Remote Field Controllers are seamlessly configured and programmed according to IEC 61131 using the PC WORX automation software. PC WORX can be used locally on the serial interface or via the network (Ethernet).

The powerful processor can be programmed in all five IEC 61131 programming languages and ensures quick control task processing.

Ethernet communication

The integrated communication functions of the RFC ... ETH-IB modules enable direct and time-effective data exchange via Ethernet. The Ethernet TCP/IP protocol is used for universal possibilities to communicate with Remote Field Controllers. The standardized transport protocol TCP/IP is known worldwide and is available for all computer architectures and operating systems.

In the Ethernet network data is available in a standardized format using the INTERBUS OPC server.

Using the TCP/IP Send and Receive communication blocks according to the IEC-61131-5 standard, information between two Remote Field Controllers, e.g. necessary coupling variables, can be exchanged via Ethernet. This enables distributed, modular automation solutions to be configured. Even time synchronization is possible via the Ethernet network.
