Controllers and software
ClassicController The ClassicController is the basic device of the R360 controller family. The first generation was a universal platform for a wide range of applications with its numerous configurable inputs and outputs. The latest generation of this controller is available in two types, they enable implementation of many device variants due to their flexible configuration. The great advantage: storage at the OEM and for service on site is considerably reduced. The ClassicController is available as 16-bit variant with 24 or 40 inputs and outputs and as 32-bit variant with 32 multifunctional inputs and outputs. The function is defined in the user program. ExtendedController Like the ClassicController, the ExtendedController supports the various functions of the configurable inputs / outputs and interfaces. In one housing it provides up to 80 inputs / outputs, connection is made via two 55-way connectors. Depending on the selected mode the ExtendedController can be used with simple or dual CPU function. As default, 80 inputs / outputs are available. All functions are managed by the central CPU and programmed via a user program to IEC 61131-3. In the “dual CPU” mode the user can access two separately programmable controllers with 40 inputs / outputs each. But the internal synchronised data interface still enables easy exchange between separately running processors. SmartController The SmartController performs different control functions. Programmable to IEC 61131-3 like all controllers of the ecomat moble system, it can be adapted to different requirements. Whether it serves as an intelligent slave in a distributed system, as gateway between different CAN systems (SAE J 1939 / CANopen) or as controller for small stand-alone machines, the SmartController performs all tasks. In this device it is also possible to set the parameters of the input and output function via the user program. SafetyController The ClassicController for safety-related appliations up to the safety category 3 (EN 954-1) is called SafetyController. In this device special test routines for hardware and software monitoring are implemented. Nevertheless, the controllers are easily and conveniently programmable via CoDeSys. Due to the certification of the hardware, operating system software and programming tools it is easy for the project engineer to get the approval for the machine. Full concentration can be given to the application program.
