Products for Industry now distribute the Pluto Profibus Gateway. The Profibus Gateway enables two-way communication with the Jokab Pluto safety PLC.
Via the PROFIBUS Safety Gateway, a supervisory PLC system can have access to the I/O and other variables in a Pluto safety PLC. Global I/O in a Pluto safety PLC are accessible via PROFIBUS modules in the gateway.
A supervisory PLC system can transmit non-safety-related information to a Pluto safety PLC. A total of 64 Boolean values and 8 different 16-bit registers can be transmitted.
To simplify the integration of a Pluto PROFIBUS Gateway into the supervisory PLC system, Jokab Safety provides ready-made function blocks for several popular brands of PLC. The function blocks make it easier to receive and send information to the Pluto system.
