It's now possible to migrate the automation system PSS 4000 into existing plants implemented using the programmable control systems PSS 3000. The previously "separate" worlds can now be connected safely via standard Ethernet, using a simple software block solution.

Your benefits at a glance:

  • Expansion of existing plants; the automation system PSS 4000 (control system PSSuniversal PLC) can be added to existing plants which were implemented using the programmable control systems PSScompact or PSSmodular with Ethernet interface
  • Investment protection is guaranteed; a full conversion to a different system is unnecessary
  • No additional wiring required, as failsafe communication is implemented via two software blocks in the control system's respective user program.
