First came the mini analogue pro signal conditioner, which revolutionised the market and set the new standard in space and time saving for end customers.
Mini Analogue Pro communication gateways
Customers today have several problems when they need to connect a variety of signals from the field – these signals may be analogue, digital, temperature, frequency, potentiometer or limit values. To connect the signals they will need several different signal specific cards, which take up space, take time to be wired and can mean high costs per channel if every input is not utilised.
Here are some of the advantages this can offer:
- Integration of freely combinable signal conditioners into industrial networks
- Interference-free signal transmission from the field level to the CPU
- Signal-specific input cards are no longer needed
- Quick parameterisation without software
- Easy configuration and monitoring via mobile devices or via a pc
- Quick and error free network connectivity
These units are available with Modbus TCP, Profibus DP and Modbus RTU options, with Ethernet IP and Profinet available later in the year.
So what other interesting and useful offers have Phoenix Contact recently released?
