Communication Protocols: Open standards EtherNet/IP and Modbus/TCP for connectivity to many peripheral devices on the market.
Standard Programming Languages: IEC61131-3 means that programs are developed and executed with predictable behavior.
Programmable Amplifier Outputs: The controller can operate local Sigma-5 outputs. This reduces panel cost and space requirements when just a couple of outputs are necessary.
Remote I/O: Numerous third-party remote I/O modules such as Phoenix, Wago, and Opto 22 can be interfaced with the system via MECHATROLINK and Ethernet.
Web Server A built in web server offers standard controller diagnostic information eliminating the need for special software for maintenance personnel
