Retrofittable CODESYS 3 HMI/PLC
Turck Banner can offer CODESYS 3 programming as an addition to its TX HMI/PLC series.
Compared to the established TX500 models, two central modifications have been added: The TX700 devices operate with multicore processors at an operating frequency of 800 MHz and use a modern Linux platform. This makes it possible to implement more complex control tasks and visualisations. The glass display of the units, with a capacitive touch function, enables intuitive operation with the gesture control typically used with smartphones.
With their range of interfaces, the TX700 units offer versatile use straight from the factory, such as master operation in Profinet, Ethernet/IP, Modbus TCP, Modbus RTU and CANopen. Use as a slave (server) is also possible in both Modbus networks. This is said to considerably reduce the number of device variants required in stock. An integrated OPC UA server allows the parallel transfer of monitoring data to higher-level systems.
Thanks to three separate Ethernet ports, users are able to physically separate communication to cloud or office IT networks from the machine controller, helping ensure reliable PLC operation and enabling switch functions to be implemented for creating line topologies.
The TX700 devices are available in display sizes of 5, 7, 10, 15 and 21in.>
