The universally applicable Drive controller platform "Inveor"From Kostal can be optionally equipped with all common fieldbus systems across all performance classes from 0.37 to 22 kW. Due to the use of optional plug-in fieldbus modules, further bus connections can be implemented in addition to the field bus systems Profibus DP, Ethercat and CAN open that have already been implemented.
In this way, the drive controller can be easily integrated into existing automation processes without the user having to deviate from the previously used fieldbus system.
A major advantage of the fieldbus systems is the possibility of system diagnostics. Hereby, for example, warnings are passed on directly to the higher-level controller in order, for example, to plan maintenance intervals. Furthermore, the cabling effort is reduced for bus connections. This saves on the one hand planning and installation on the other hand, on the other hand, this also ensures a higher reliability of the overall system due to reduced interfaces.
It is also possible to easily and flexibly adapt the Iveor for the respective application with the aid of the integrated Soft-PLC. Among other things, external sensors can also be evaluated via it.
