Freedom to communicate Real time information is becoming increasingly important in industrial automation and control systems as we progress further into Industry 4.0. Immediate access to data increases transparency in production facilities, while making it possible to optimize system performance, collect and analyze system data and provide remote support around the clock from anywhere in the world. Regardless of your application or your preferred communication protocol, both VLT® and VACON® drives have an extremely wide variety of communication protocols to select from. In this way you can...

Traditional wiring. No fieldbus. In this system configuration, connections between the drive and PLC require one wire for each input that needs to be controlled or monitored. The advantage of such a system is that the individual components themselves are relatively inexpensive. This, however, comes at a price, as such systems are often expensive to install and extend. Each additional device or signal requires new wiring, can require additional PLC hardware, and always requires additional PLC programming and verification. For owners this means higher capital costs and restricted flexibility....

Increase productivity Fieldbus communication reduces capital costs in production plants. In addition to the initial savings achieved through the significant reduction in wiring and control boxes, fieldbus networks are easier to maintain, while providing improved systems performance. Fieldbus configuration files for easy PLC integration Integrating a drive into an existing bus system can be time consuming and complicated. To make this process easy and more efficient, Danfoss Drives offers fieldbus drivers and PLC examples, which can be downloaded for free from the Danfoss Drives website....
