SCHMIDT® PRC Gateway
I/O-Interface for System Control
The SCHMIDT® PRC Gateway serves as a link between SCHMIDT® Press Systems and a system control (PLC). It has two CANopen-ports with 24 V-power supply for the SCHMIDT® Control (Master) and the optional process data acquisition (Slave). The integrated 24V-Interface with 16 in- and 16 outputs can not only be used for communication with a system control, also further applications can be realized, e. g. slide table, work piece control, part recognition, etc. The I/O’s are short-circuit-proof as well as overload-proof and there is a status LED for each in-/output as well as for the CAN-Bus. Furthermore the PRC Gateway has a connectivity for the optional handwheel as handheld for the SCHMIDT® ServoPress or TorquePress.
The SCHMIDT® PRC Gateway is especially designed to meet the requirements of an automation and provides the opportunity to integrate SCHMIDT® Press Systems very easy. The compact design with top hat rail mounting for the switch cabinet, as well as the simple and service friendly access to the electrical connections facilitate the handling. Moreover all cables and connection assemblies are made of normed parts with standardized assignments, therefore installation errors can be avoided by the operator.
