SIRIUS ACT Communication
Simply well connected - Communication solutions for the field and the control panel
When it comes to communication, SIRIUS ACT is a strong performer. Besides the standard wiring, you can also connect the push buttons and signaling devices directly to the controller – in the field or control panel via PROFINET, AS-Interface and IO-Link. By doing so, you can reduce wiring time and effort, minimize error source and gain more flexibility for future modification and expansion. Extended diagnostics and parameterization options are as well possible due to the Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal) engineering framework.
A solution for connecting pushbuttons and signaling devices easily to a controller
The various communication interfacing options provided by SIRIUS ACT enable simple combinations of push buttons and signaling devices, HMI touch screens and industrial PCs, which means that complex input stations can be set up without extensive wiring and engineering time and effort. Integration into the TIA Portal enables them to be visually displayed for better harmonization with the hardware, thus simplifying and speeding up hardware configuration. Further advantages are uniform data management (intelligent system), time savings thanks to intuitive hardware configuration and lower downtimes resulting from faster fault diagnostics. The option handling feature enables flexible systems to be designed and individually adapted – even during ongoing operation.
