Schneider Electric IIoT-enabled safety and process controller
The Modicon M580 IIoT-enabled safety and process controller combines the performance, cybersecurity and networking capabilities of the Modicon M580 Ethernet-enabled PAC with the functionality of a safety PLC. Part of the company’s EcoStruxure Plant IIoT platform, the controller uses the same software tools, wiring methods and X80 I/O structure as the M580 ePAC to reduce spare part inventory and maintenance costs. It also provides the workforce with access and visibility to operating data and diagnostics via a secure Ethernet communications backbone. Mobile device compatibility makes safety and operating data available anytime.
