Networking protection and control units in systems and machines is becoming increasingly common. Operating states are gathered, visualised, and controlled within the scope of remote maintenance. Phoenix Contact’s CBMC electronic circuit breakers can be incorporated into the comprehensive process control and monitoring concept via an integrated IO-Link interface. The compact, multi-channel circuit breakers are configured according to the specific system, thereby providing transparency across the entire system.
All the necessary settings can be made remotely. A feature blocking access to the device protects it against improper interference or tampering locally. In addition, servicing can be scheduled based on process data and error diagnostics can be performed on the device without supply voltage. This increases system availability significantly.
