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.
The fact that industrial automation has made a significant advancement with Profinet is easy to understand. This is because with Profinet, you directly link drives and safety technology to the network environment.
This Ethernet-based system is significantly faster than Profibus, but can readily be combined with it. The same applies to connections with IO-Link. You save time and money, while connectivity ensures improved process quality.
With our network blocks Profinet can be integrated consistently from the control level to the drive. Even in harsh environments.
As a solution provider Balluff offers a wide range of components for optimal Profibus use. The mature fieldbus technology has been reliably supporting modern production for many years. Regardless of the controller manufacturer, you will find the optimum solution in our range of products.
You will benefit from efficient field and process communication with simple wiring, fast integration through direct installation in your system, and faster modifications. This is all still possible even in in rough industrial environments. Our Profibus solutions are IO-Link-capable. This means that you will directly benefit from all of the advantages of IO-Link. Sophisticated connection technology from Balluff allows you to increase your efficiency.
Fieldbus and network technologies should meet the demands for increasingly powerful communication, in all areas of industrial communication.
Communication should be as uniform as possible. Balluff connects communication at the machine and system level with sensor/actuator communication, with the automation tasks in Asia specifically in mind. This communication system applies BNI network blocks for CC-Link IE/Field for the system level, along with a direct connection on the sensor/actuator level.
For the perfect connection of I/O systems to the open, deterministic high-speed network CC-Link IE/Field, we have developed highly functional and practical fieldbus modules. This new generation outshines everything before it with its outstanding configuration and diagnostics options.
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 by over 1000 companies.
CC-Link is an effective integral system that will absolutely meet your requirements. Utilize our extensive, high-quality CC-Link portfolio to implement your own powerful control topologies using products from a single source.
High efficiency is only feasible with an optimized network. For your high-performance system, we offer a comprehensive EtherNet/IP program. EtherNet/IP is a globally recognized standard for network technology, replacing DeviceNet in many areas. The technology based on Ethernet is significantly faster and enables the integration of drive technology.
Our network blocks for Ethernet/IP also score points with their high user-friendliness. Only Balluff Ethernet blocks can block IP addresses and protect against accidental changes. This increases your security and simplifies maintenance.
With an entire spectrum of high-performance network technology, Balluff supports you in easily selecting the right network components. We can provide all the blocks required for efficient Devicenet applications in the USA.
Regardless of the controller manufacturer, you will benefit with our portfolio of comprehensive network and connectivity products. Consistently designed to your requirements, no desires for outside the control cabinets go unmet. You can now choose an efficient field and process combination, saving you both time and money.
Outstanding performance, low costs, flexible topology and easy handling: these are the advantages of the industrial Ethernet technology, EtherCAT. EtherCAT provides full flexibility: a free topology selection, the possibility of connecting and disconnecting devices and segments during operation, and the performance redundancy of the ring topology.
EtherCAT is suitable for both centralized and decentralized architectures, supports Master/Slave, Master/Master, and Slave/Slave communication. It can also integrate secondary fieldbuses.
By using the existing infrastructure, the factory level is also optimally covered with the EtherCAT Automation Protocol. Preferably with out network blocks.
