To simplify device set-up and installation time, Turck’s interface module (IM) family may now be programmed via a PC or on-board push buttons using FDT/DTM software, along with PACTware. This software allows multiple parameters to be set and saved in a matter of seconds. The ease of use and structure of this system facilitates asset management with trending and data logging of values in a variety of applications.
Turck’s interface modules may be used to monitor motor speed, shaft speed and conveyors, as well as the temperature of RTDs and thermocouples. They can additionally control or monitor analog signals for linear movement, temperature, pressure, level control or any other device using 4 to 20 mA signals. Intrinsically safe interface modules models are also available to control devices in hazardous areas.
