'Easy integration' bus connectivity
Elau has simplified integration of its parent co.’s fieldbus-equipped automation components into Elau’s modular automation solution.
Easy Integration uses IEC-compliant function blocks to quickly interface Schneider Electric components over a variety of networks. As an open automation solution, the Elau system can be used with all common products that communicate via Profibus, Ethernet/IP, CAN-based networks, and CANopen. The development of IEC-61131-3-compliant, configurable Function Blocks provides bus connections by parameterization instead of by programming. The user implements the Function Blocks in either the Elau programming template or in the OEM’s existing program structure.
