Compact fault reporting system for reliable system operation
Fault reporting systems provide you with the necessary overview of the current status of your system. They provide information that ensures the system is safely controlled in all operating and error states. Thanks to increased system transparency, on-site maintenance work to clear faults is optimized.
The infobox design variants can be ordered with 8, 16, 24, or 40 possible messages. The fault reporting system is specifically designed for the requirements for processing and displaying messages. As an option, the data can be forwarded to higher-level control rooms using common communication protocols such as IEC 60870-5-104 and IEC 61850.
Your advantages One modular system for a range of applications
✔ Intuitive configuration and parameterization of alarm and status messages
✔ Flexible visual and audible messages locally on the device
✔ Easy integration into the automation environment with the use of standardized communication protocols
✔ Optimum installation in control cabinet structures with standardized hardware designs
All information directly at a glance Clear message display and operation on the front of the device
Comprehensive configuration options for many applications Combine inputs, outputs, and connections easily
Fault reporting technology without communication function (infobox Basic) Monitoring system states with local messages
The infobox Basic processes system signals and visualizes the messages locally on the device front. As an option, the internally installed horn or other locally connected sirens or lighting can be used for signaling, in addition to the LED display.
The fault signaling system can be parameterized quickly and easily via the DIP switches installed on the rear. Marking strips can be created and printed in just a few steps using the infobox ENGINEER software.
Fault reporting technology with communication function (infobox COM) Easy integration into your automation environment
The Industry 4.0-capable infobox COM fault signaling system features the same scope of functions for signaling local messages. Moreover, there is also the option of communicating information to a higher-level control room and to receive protocol-based information from the field level. Here, data is transmitted via standardized communication protocols. With this function, several devices can also be combined to create a larger fault signaling system.
Despite the comprehensive configuration options, the infobox ENGINEER software enables easy and time-saving commissioning.

Software-based configuration of the infobox COM Intuitive operation and comprehensive configuration options
Test the software without obligation Gain an initial impression
The infobox ENGINEER parameterization software is primarily used to set up the infobox COM. Along with other functions, the message markings are specified and printed in the software. The print templates can of course also be used for the infobox Basic.
