Example 1
Distributed control concepts can be implemented with the comprehensive Axioline range.
Example 2
Operation and visualization tasks can be handled in a compact way by an industrial PC or outsourced to an HMI. For less complex applications, PLC logic combines plug-in I/Os and a controller in a minimum amount of space.
Example 3
Minimize your wiring effort between the controller and the field by using compact system cabling.
Example 4
For central control concepts, the controller and I/Os can be arranged side-by-side directly in the control cabinet.
