The addition of programmable BC3100/BC2000 and BC8000/BC8100 bus terminal controllers has enabled Hayes Control Systems to expand its Beckhoff PLC controller series to exploit the advantages of bus terminals and offers consistent programming in accordance with the IEC 61131-3 standard. All types of signal relevant to automation technology become available economically through these two-channel bus terminals, simply by clipping them in a terminal box.
Distributed intelligence performs pre-processing of data in distributed plant, thus relieving the higher order control system of routine tasks.
The controller can also function as a standalone unit, carrying out control and regulation tasks on its own. If, for example, a display is connected, the terminal box becomes a multi-functional mini PLC.
