Processor, antenna, and switch combined in one compact housing
Balluff is pleased to announce the introduction of the Profinet All-in-One read/write system. The rugged, space-saving housing is designed to eliminate messy cable runs back to the control cabinet. This system can operate with a direct connection to the PLC or multiple heads can be daisy chained with only one Ethernet connection running back to the PLC. "The real value for automation integrators is the cost per read point can be greatly reduced," says Wolfgang Kratzenberg, Product Marketing Manager for Industrial Identification, "especially in a situation where only one or two read points are needed."
