Individual requirements can be met easily with a wide range of powerful CPUs based on industrial (Pentium) processors and with an extensive range of I / O modules. Real-time capable bus systems enable the automation to be decentralized without any loss of performance.
The M1 controller perfectly combines the openness of a PC-based controller with the reliability of industrial hardware platforms. Designed for the toughest ambient conditions, they guarantee fault-free operation with fanless installation from -40 °C up to an ambient temperature of +70 °C.
State-of-the-art system architecture designed for seamless networking capability enables the M1 to be integrated easily in the area of the controller and system peripherals. Real-time Ethernet permits real-time controller networking and the support of all currently available fieldbus systems and enables external components to be connected via standard interfaces.
