Programmable Logic Controller (Include option units)

Programmable logic controller (PLC) are used to control industrial machinery such as AC servos, general-purpose inverters, and sensors. They are widely used in factory automation systems for manufacturing and processing lines, machine tools, and industrial robots. To provide control capabilities tailored to each individual system, modular PLCs (CPU unit and various peripheral units) are used for large-scale and midsize systems, while block PLCs (CPU unit only) are used for small-scale systems.

Remote IO

Remote I/O enables master devices such as PLCs to control the input and output of data from a remote location via network. The input and output signals can be either digital or analog.

Ethernet Switch

The switch function is needed in an industrial Ethernet. It's needed to connect each node with the switch by an industrial network. Therefore the industrial switch is core equipment of a network and is a product with an implication dedicated for industry
