The FlexStation control station is approved for hazardous and non-hazardous area applications. The system of interchangeable components includes push-buttons, pilot lights, and selector switches, which can be assembled in any combination on 1, 2, and 3-operator covers. The system also features pre-marked and blank legend plates and dead-end and thru-feed back boxes. Factory-sealed contact blocks and device operators eliminate the need for external sealing.
The Bulletin 700 line of solid-state relays can interface with several sensors and industrial controllers, including PLCs and process controllers. With no electrical coil or moving contacts, the relays offer increased shock and vibration tolerance. Some versions of the unit also feature optional diagnostic LEDs, simplifying troubleshooting and reducing system downtime.
The XP series of pilot devices includes LED pilot lights, push-buttons, standard and keyed 2- and 3-position selector switches, push-to-test operators, potentiometers, and e-stops that are UL and CSA Listed for Class I, Div. 1 and 2 applications. Several operators are available with various contact block configurations to meet specific needs.
The Easy 800 controller uses a native network interface to communicate and share data with as many as seven other controllers. It can store a program of as many as 256 lines of logic, and the LCD screen can display as many as 32 screens of text with 64 characters per screen. In addition to the unit's built-in NET network interface, optional open network interfaces, including DeviceNet, Profibus-DP, and As-I, are also available.
The 535 .25-DIN single-loop, PID process controller monitors and controls temperature, pressure, level, flow, and other analog variables for batch and continuous processes. The controller provides an analog control signal output of 4mA to 20mA or 0mA to 20mA to regulate a control valve or similar final control element. Optional RS-485 communications interface with digital-communicating DCS, PLC, and PC-based SCADA systems.
Controller system cabling
Replacing standard terminal blocks with a Varioface interface module, this controller system cabling eliminates the need to strip wire at both ends and endure lengthy termination processes. The system includes a cabling adapter that plugs on the PLC card and replaces the existing screw terminals, a cable assembly in various lengths, and an interface module that can be designed to the user's application requirements.
