Industrial Automation Controllers
Industrial controllers from SALZ Automation are the smallest and the best Industrial PC hardware present in the Core i class. They are equipped with standard PCIe expansion modules and EtherCAT communication interfaces for flexible designing and arrangement according to the need and applications of the user.
Expansion options with EtherCAT I/Os and PCIe Modules
The SALZ Automation AMAX controllers has been specially developed for use in the industrial automation environment. In addition to the use of energy-efficient CPUs and the wide range of interfaces, the hardware stands out above all due to its compact design and the many expansion options.
The I/O modules communicate via EtherCAT technology in the high-performance backplane bus of the controller on the right side of the device. With this fast and established communication technology, the signals of the SALZ Automation I/O modules can be made available to many applications. Our portfolio includes digital, analog and infrastructure I/O modules. To transfer safety-critical data, EtherCAT utilizes the Fail Safe over EtherCAT (FSOE) protocol extension.
Many interesting additional hardware components can be integrated via the built-in PCI Express interface on the left side of the device.
