For the highest performance
The ever increasing demand for greater speed, flexibility, efficiency, and variability in production requires 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 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.
The system, which works on an Ethernet foundation, is significantly faster than Profibus. Profinet can be easily combined with IO-Link to offer a flexible and adaptable approach to your system, without compromising on speed or performance. Profinet with IO-Link will save you time and money, while ensuring improved 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 with the most diverse automation components, from a wide range of providers. CC-Link is already the principle fieldbus technology used throughout 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 of your needs. Balluff offers an extensive portfolio of CC-Link network modules and IO-Link devices, allowing you to fully implement your own powerful control typologies, while using products from a single source. CC-Link, when combined with IO-Link, offers tremendous flexibility in the controls architecture while enabling your automation scalability for the future.
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.
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.
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.
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.
