The control system can be connected to the user’s system using predefined interfaces. Numerous hardware variants in the form of an extensive modular system allow the designer maximum flexibility and reduce costs and errors during commissioning by means of a simple "plug-and-play" interface. In the software, the designer can access standardized modules for control functions. Integrated security features ensure compliance with the required safety level. The modular structure of the software makes using the control system very flexible, in both simple and complex applications. The designer can choose the degree of networking, also in terms of security features, according to the specific application requirements. The controller is designed for use in harsh environments, and can withstand large temperature changes as well as vibrations and shocks.
