Standardised automation optimizes system design
This standardised automation solution can be expanded with additional modules
The smart production cabinet from Phoenix Contact automates production and material handling systems incredibly effectively, from monitoring through to complex system control.
This standardised automation solution can be expanded with additional modules; the user can configure the exact functional scope they want, giving them access to a whole host of potential applications. As there is much less development work involved and since software packages are already provided, the smart production cabinet is much faster to set up and easier to commission than customised solutions. This not only reduces costs, but also optimises project turnaround time.
The built-in PLCnext controller and the engineering software supplied help to make commissioning simple; for example, the user is free to choose their favorite programming languages, such as IEC 61131 or high-level languages. The cloud connection integrated into the controller enables smart services to be used if desired, so predictive maintenance and big data analyses can be harnessed to make system processes even more efficient.
