MOTION CONTROL: To simplify device setup and installation time, TURCK’s interface module (IM) family may now be programmed via a PC or onboard push-buttons using FDT/DTM software, along with PACTware. This software allows multiple parameters to be set and saved in a matter of seconds. The ease of use and structure of this system facilitates asset management with trending and data logging of values in a variety of applications.TURCK’s IM models may be used to monitor motor speed, shaft speed and conveyors, as well as the temperature of RTDs and thermocouples. They can additionally control or monitor analog signals for linear movement, temperature, pressure, level control or any other device using 4 to 20 mA signals. Intrinsically safe IM models are also available to control devices in hazardous areas.
All models are equipped with a two-line transflective LCD display, which offers exceptional readability, even under bright lighting conditions. The modules also incorporate a universal supply voltage and removable terminals, making them simple to install in new or existing systems.
