Expectations about product quality and system uptime are constantly increasing in the industrial and process control industry. The CPC12 bus controller is part of E-T-A’s intelligent REX12D power distribution and protection system.The REX12D and REX22D electronic circuit protectors record status and measuring values for each load circuit and transmit them to the bus controller.
The CPC12 ControlPlex includes EtherNet/IP, PROFINET, Modbus TCP and EtherCAT and also has an additional Ethernet interface. The integral web server of the CPC12 bus controller allows direct access to the DC 24 V power distribution data. All measuring data and status information can be accessed without using the field bus interface. This is particularly beneficial for maintenance personnel, because required information is quickly available, either onsite or remotely, during initial start-up and in the event of a system shut-down. If the circuit protector trips, it can quickly be reset – which helps increase system uptime.
The REX12D modular power distribution system combined with the CPC12 bus controller will allow you to:
- Maximize uptime with clear failure detection, system transparency, and remote diagnosis
- Save space by reducing the width of circuit protectors and potential modules compared to other options on the market
- Increase system flexibility with an entire portfolio of modules that allows designers to quickly adapt or expand systems based on new requirement
