Communication solutions for the field and the control panel

… simply well connected …

Learn how easy and fast command and signaling devices with PROFINET mounted,
configured in the TIA Portal & visualized and replaced if necessary.




… and easily integrated …

The various communication interfacing options provided by SIRIUS ACT enable simple combinations of push buttons and signaling devices, HMI touch screens and industrial PCs, which means that complex input stations can be set up without extensive wiring and engineering time and effort. Integration into the TIA Portal enables them to be visually displayed for better harmonization with the hardware, thus simplifying and speeding up hardware configuration. Further advantages are uniform data management (intelligent system), time savings thanks to intuitive hardware configuration and lower downtimes resulting from faster fault diagnostics. The option handling feature enables flexible systems to be designed and individually adapted – even during ongoing operation.
