Upgrade existing controls to reduce maintenance and
This upgrade reduces control wiring from field devices to the electrical house PLC panel. The upgrade eliminates long wiring runs for ease of troubleshooting. The upgrade can be supplied in two different methods:
- Connect existing field devices, motor controllers, operator consoles and other equipment to a common communication link. Control wiring is eliminated from the first connection box to the electrical house. The equipment is connected to a DeviceNet platform.
- This method places I/O modules out at the junction boxes connected to field devices or "remote I/O." Control wiring from the junction boxes to the electrical house is drastically reduced. Trouble-shooting of wiring is reduced to "device to I/O modules" local to the device.
