The AC 700F controller, as a member of Freelance, has numerous advantages over a PLC based solution:
- The distributed process control system (DCS) simplifies engineering, commissioning and maintenance of the automation system.
- Visualization is directly incorporated into the engineering, making configuration particularly straightforward.
AC 700F can also be extended with Profibus Remote I/O units. In addition, field devices can be connected to AC 700F. Thanks to the flexibility of Ethernet and its small footprint, AC 700F can also be placed in junction boxes in non-hazardous areas out in the field as competitive, intelligent Ethernet I/O.
