To meet the needs of machine manufacturers and users, automation architectures have been decentralized while delivering performance close to that of centralized systems.
Architectures based around islands installed as close to the machine as possible reduce the time and cost of wiring for sensors and actuators, while increasing system availability.
The Advantys STB distributed I/O solution is an open, modular input/output system and makes it possible to design automation islands managed by a master controller via a bus or communication network. These islands can be used to connect:
- Motor starters
- Variable speed drives
- Magelis HMI terminals
- Approved third-party products via the CANopen bus: Festo, Parker valves, FTB IP 67 distributed I/O, ATV variable speed drives, encoders, etc.
Advantys software guides users through the design phase, start-up, and even maintenance of the system. This single software package covers the Advantys STB, OTB, FTB, and FTM ranges.
The island components are electronic modules mounted on one or more DIN rails. These clusters of modules, known as segments, carry a bus from beginning to end of each island. The island bus provides power distribution, signal sensing, and power management to all compatible modules, in the form of a wiring management system.
