Plant servicing, device service and training made easy
The new GEMÜ PLC-based multifunctional case is used for operating – independently of plants – programming and initialising the automated devices mounted on the process valves.
This could, for example, include electrical position indicators, combi switchboxes and electronic and electro-pneumatic positioners. T
he case has freely selectable 0–10 V, 0–20 mA and 4–20 mA input/output signals as well as a 24 V/DC device supply system and an Ethernet interface as standard. Sensors and measuring transducers can also communicate with the device.
The multifunctional case is also suitable for training technical personnel for maintenance and plant servicing.
The compact and robust device is optimised for frequent transport. It is guaranteed to be safe to operate, even by inexperienced people. The GEMÜ measurement and control systems functional case has a Siemens PLC and is equipped with an industrial touchscreen display. Eight languages can be freely selected on the homepage, enabling international usage (D, GB, F, S, RUS, ES, BR, IT). A small compressor as well as a pressure accumulator are integrated into the case which makes the independent pneumatic air supply to connected devices of small to medium nominal size possible.
The case is supplied with the pre-assembled cables required for operation with GEMÜ products as standard. To operate devices from other manufacturers, cables can be optionally provided. The measurement and control systems case works with an operating voltage of 100 V/AC to 240 V/AC and can therefore be used with all common mains supply networks all over the world. The stable TANOS case system made of ABS was selected to make up the body and for transport. The cases can be safely stacked and can interlock.
