Remote sensor control via the network
Reducing wiring, service and the time required for installation are critical factors for lowering overall costs. The SC-GU3 communication unit allows you to quickly mount sensor amplifiers side by side and communicate with a PC via an open network. Using the PC, you can monitor digital and analog signals provided by the sensors or even perform sensor settings. A fast return on investment is ensured.
- Model variant SC-GU3-03 is the communication unit for EtherCAT
- Sensor information can be monitored and settings can be changed by a PC on the network
- Up to 16 sensor amplifiers can be connected to one communication unit (only 12 for FX-500 series)
- No tools are needed to install the sensor amplifiers
- Sensors can be easily replaced without removing adjacent sensor amplifiers
