To simplify device set-up and installation time, Turck’s interface modules (IM) can be programmed via a PC or on-board push buttons using FDT/DTM software, along with PACTware.
This software allows multiple parameters to be set and saved in seconds. Facilitates asset management with trending and data logging of values in a variety of applications. IM models monitor motor speed, shaft speed and conveyors, as well as the temperature of RTDs and thermocouples. They can control or monitor analog signals for linear movement, temperature, pressure, level control or any other device using 4 to 20 mA signals. Intrinsically safe IM models are also available to control devices in hazardous areas.
