Cost-efficient alternative solution for conventional PLC-PC-connections via Ethernet.
Due to the increasing integration in automation technology, more than ever a connection from a PLC to a PC is required. In general, the communication processors (e.g. CPs from Siemens, or Ethernet components from other manufacturers) are used for the connection to the PLC.
As an alternative solution, IBHsoftec has recently introduced the IBHLink S5
for connecting a PLC with a PC. The IBHLink S5
is a compact and robust Ethernet-converter within a 15-pin Sub-D-housing for a connection via a switch, a hub or even directly to a PC with a common network adaptor.
