Kendrion's Modular Controllers of the FIO series has been especially designed to meet your specific automation control needs and, thanks to their compact size, offer maximum performance in the smallest installation space. Based on the powerful, open CODESYS standard, these controllers offer a diverse array of communication interfaces and customizable software packages and can be easily integrated in your existing development environment.The Kuhnke FIO controllers can be easily expanded with Kuhnke FIO I/O modules, or they can function as standalone units. The CODESYS HMI from Kendrion can be used for simple and user-friendly visualization.
These modular PLCs excel in a wide range of applications, including gateway and communication tasks, and they even support Softmotion and Softmotion+ as well as CNC Roboticsoptions for enhanced performance. Additionally, the FIO Extender Module allows for the seamless connection of decentralized EtherCAT slaves, ensuring modern connectivity and flexibility.
This integration delivers both the robust programmability of CODESYS Development System V3 and the flexibility to choose device options tailored to your specific requirements. With modern interfaces and expandability through FIO I/O modules, these systems provide a versatile and adaptable solution for your control needs.
The new modular FIO Controller 111 combines the advantages of a compact controller with the possibilities of a modular PLC. The ARM-based Kuhnke FIO Controller 111 is programmed with CODESYS V3 and has integrated analog I/Os and motion functionality.
With the help of the integrated configurable IOs including fast counters, analog value processing, pulse train outputs (PTO) and encoder inputs, numerous additional functions such as the control of two synchronized axes can be implemented in a cost-optimized manner. For a high degree of flexibility, the controller has Industrial Ethernet, CAN and RS485 communication interfaces as well as EtherCAT. Additional communication channels can also be opened up through the use of interface and bus modules. A µSD card enables the local storage of process data and the exchange of control programs.
The FIO Controller is suitable for numerous automation tasks in the field of mechanical engineering. Typical applications also include power generation, equipment manufacturing, testing facilities, cleaning systems and special machine construction.
The Kuhnke FIO Controller 116 is a PLC based on i.MX6 that is programmed with CODESYS V3. The controller has an SD card slot and offers numerous communication interfaces as standard (LAN, USB, CAN, RS-232, EtherCAT E-bus) as well as fieldbus interfaces (EtherCAT, CANopen, Modbus RTU and TCP) and thus offers a wide range of functions and options for use in automation.
In addition, the FIO 116 controller can be equipped with intelligent software packages:
- CODESYS Softmotion light
