Bus terminals integrate PLC functions

It’s tricky: on the one hand, fieldbus systems represent the most promising solution to decentralising I/O, but on the other hand trying to find the right bus can be a real problem. Hayes Control Systems reckons the Beckhoff system is an answer.

Already known for its fieldbus neutral electronic terminal blocks with bus couplers, Beckhoff has upped the ante with the launch of the BC3100 bus terminal controller, which is a bus coupler with integrated PLC functions.
