Configuring a modern machine is no easy feat. As the demands for performance, reliability and connectivity grow, so does the complexity. Standards help address these issues, with Ethernet/IP becoming the one of choice for machine builders and end users alike.
Our CJ2 controller family and other Ethernet based automation products let you take full advantage of a single EtherNet/IP network for machine solution.
- Reduction in wiring and engineering time up to 30%: Distributing I/Os and networked devices over the single EtherNet/IP Machine network simplifies wiring and development time by as much as 30%.
- Simplified machine architecture: Now you can daisy-chain almost all of the automation components on your machine using a single cable and eliminate the complexity of using several separate networks.
- Reuse your safety configuration, programs, and validations: Our standalone NX safety modular controller is a scalable solution that can be adjusted to all machine size requirements ensuring flexibility and reusability of your Safety Engineering projects.
- Enhanced machine productivity and maintenance efficiency: Easy access to all device data and settings via the HMI and PLC connections help ensure that your service engineers stay informed at all times and can take action the moment it is needed. The result? More production, less downtime.
