For the highest performance
Ever faster, more flexible, more efficient and variable production demands seamless communication from the sensor to the Internet. The result is a growing amount of data within the production processes. This demands components which can make this information available. At the same time an infrastructure is required which transports the data across all levels.
As a full-service provider, Balluff offers a wide range of components for optimum Profibus use. The mature fieldbus technology has been reliably supporting modern production for many years. You will find the optimum solution in our range of products, regardless oft he controller manufacturer.
You will benefit from efficient field and process communication with simple wiring, fast integration through direct installation in your system and the possibility of fast modifications. And all this in rough industrial environments as well. Our Profibus solutions are IO-Link-capable. This means that you will directly benefit from all the advantages of IO-Link. Sophisticated connection technology from Balluff allows you to increase your efficiency.
The fact that industrial automation has made a significant advancement with Profinet is understandable. This is because with Profinet, you directly link drives and safety technology to the network environment.
The system, which works on an Ethernet basis, is significantly faster than Profibus, but can be easily combined with it. The same applies to IO-Link connections. IO-Link will save you time and costs, and will ensure improved process quality through connectivity.
Profinet can be integrated consistently from the control level to the drive. Even in harsh environments.
CC-Link is a standardized fieldbus designed to integrate the most diverse automation components of a wide range of providers. CC-Link is already the principle fieldbus technology used in Asia. The open network is supported by the CC-Link partner association CLPA, which is represented globally with over 1000 companies.
As an effective and integrated system, CC-Link is guaranteed to meet all your needs. Utilize our extensive, high-quality portfolio to implement your own powerful control topologies using products from a single source.
The following applies to all areas of industrial communication: Fieldbus and network technologies should meet the demands for increasingly powerful communication.
At the same time, the communication should be as uniform as possible. Specifically for the automation tasks in Asia, Balluff was able to connect communication at the machine and system level with sensor/actuator communication: CC-Link IE/Field modules for the system level on the one hand and the direct connection with the sensor/actuator level on the other.
We have developed highly functional and practicable fieldbus modules for the perfect connection of I/O systems to the open, deterministic high-speed network CC-Link IE/Field. This new generation outshines everything before it with its excellent configuration and diagnostics options.
Balluff offers the entire spectrum of powerful network technology so you can easily choose the best network components to meet your needs.
Regardless of the manufacturer of the controller, the matching components can be easily assembled. This programme leaves nothing to be desired outside of the control cabinet allowing you to choose an efficient field and process combination that saves both time and costs.
High efficiency is only feasible with an optimized network. For your high-performance system, Baluff offers a comprehensive Ethernet/IP programme. Globaly recognised as a standard for network technology, Ethernet/IP has replaced Devicenet in many areas. The technology based on Ethernet is significantly faster and enables the integration of drive technology.
Our Ethernet/IP modules are characterised by their user-friendliness. Only Balluff Ethernet modules can block IP addresses protecting the system against accidental changes, increasing your security and simplifying maintenance.
Outstanding performance, low costs, flexible topology and easy handling: These are the advantages of the industrial Ethernet technology EtherCAT.
EtherCAT provides full flexibility: Providing a free choice of topology so that line, branch, tree and star can be combined in any combination. This flexibility is enhanced by connecting and disconnecting devices and segments during operation and through line redundancy of the ring topology.
The technology is suitable for both centralized and decentralized architectures. It supports master/slave, master/master and slave/slave communication and can integrate secondary fieldbuses.
By using the existing infrastructure, the factory level is optimally covered with the EtherCAT Automation Protocol.
