Concept & Product overview
Control, operation and supervisory integrated controllers
Realizes High-Speed Advanced Machine Control
I/O control with a program capacity of up to 256 K steps and up to 65,536 points enables a suitable system configuration ranging from small through to large scale. 1 ms program scan and I/O refresh are possible. Function and performance distribution are possible in a multi-CPU system configuration with up to 8 CPUs.
Open Network Oriented
Both the hardware and software conform to the IEC61131 international standard for programmable controllers. Compatible with Ethernet, LonWorks, DeviceNet, PROFIBUS-DP, AS-i, and other diverse open networks.
Realizes Integrated Programming Support
Provides an environment in which each support tool can be launched by simply clicking on a device in a network structure diagram or system configuration diagram on a PC. Allows setup of parameters of inverter and servo via SPH and enables remote data monitor operation, thereby eliminating troublesome wiring changes.
Integration of control, information, and communication
With the aid of an upgraded data processing function, mass memory storage, and a built-in Ethernet function, the SPH is capable of monitoring the operation of production systems and devices and recording operation history and errors in addition to conventional FA control. It thus enables you to use the controller for wider applications of IT-based remote monitoring,maintenance support, and preventive maintenance.
CPU and power supply redundancy can also be achieved in response to the growing demand for higher reliability.
Highly reliable duplex system allows stable continuous operation
Redundant CPU, duplexed control network, and duplexed I/O network allow stable continuous operation. Control systems that require high reliability such as infrastructure equipment can be constructed.
Evolution from the SX bus to the E-SX bus
The released E-SX bus has evolved from the SX bus, a system bus.
4096 words of the direct connection I/O capacity or 8 times the previous capacity, 2048 words/ms of the refresh performance or 16 times the previous performance, and 100 Mbps/100 m of the transmission speed and the station-to-station distance, 4 times the previous values, allow the bus to be applied to more complicated and large-scale device and facilities.
