"Wyjatkowo elastyczne projektowanie systemu"

System zdalnego wejścia/wyjścia u-remote oddziela zasilanie dla wejść i wyjść za pomocą dwóch 10 A ścieżek prądu, które są w stanie wytrzymać duże obciążenia. Jako dobrze znający rynek eksperci, menedżerowie branżowi w firmie Weidmüller Annika Grzegorz i Stefano Schiavella są w pełni świadomi, jakie daje to korzyści projektantom systemów i operatorom w produkcji maszyn.

 
 Annika Gregorz and Stefano Schiavella talking about intelligently separated I/O current paths
WIN! The separate current paths are one of the great features of the new Weidmüller remote I/O system in IP 20. How well do they meet the needs of your market?

Schiavella: Our separate current paths excel in three respects: firstly, fewer modules are needed, secondly, they require less planning, and thirdly, start-up and maintenance are much simpler.

 

An ability to withstand high loads is key to ensuring smooth system operation. Two times 10 amps is highly beneficial. This current strength ensures a continuous supply even if the system is fully extended to 64 I/O modules. This means our customers need fewer power-feed modules, which ultimately results in more space and planning freedom in the cabinet.

Gregorz: Our customers are also particularly excited about the prospect of being able to separate system sections. In heavy machine construction, it is normal for start-up to take place one section at a time. And during operation or maintenance work, specific sections can be activated or deactivated without affecting production thanks to the independence of the inputs and outputs. This option of a uniquely flexible system design saves huge amounts of time.

WIN! Have you noticed any particular trends that the u-remote slots into thanks to its separate current paths?

Schiavella: We are finding that personal safety is increasing in importance. Ongoing internationalisation means that system planners have to be meticulous in ensuring that they meet all global requirements.

 

In emergencies, our separate current paths allow machines to be shut down while maintaining communication with the control. The machine can then be smoothly started up again and no unnecessary time is lost.

Gregorz: I can only confirm how important the separate current paths are for emergency shutdowns. In Germany, the introduction of the new machinery directive has brought in tougher requirements and raised awareness of this issue.

This is also where our SIL-3 power-feed modules with up to two connections for emergency stop circuits come into their own. Machine restarts can be safely controlled with this solution.

WIN! u-remote has been on the market for a couple of months now. How would you sum up the initial response to it?

Gregorz: I have found that u-remote wins over many customers instantly. The intuitive usage and handling and the multi-award-winning system design speak for themselves.

 

Automation specialists unanimously agree that the connection technology is a great selling point. With “PUSH IN”, system cable wiring and HD-IDC plug-in connectors, we offer a convincing solution for all conceivable applications.

Schiavella: So far, I have found that people like the fact that u-remote is a complete solution. “More Performance. Simplified.” This promise sums up the system and all of its features.

 

From the modularity of the system and its robustness to features such as the integrated web server, users can sense that the design is ingenious.
