Using SM560-S-FD-4 safety CPU and CM589-PNIO-4 PROFINET IO device ensures that the safe evaluation result can be exchanged from one fail-safe condition monitoring system to multiple safety controllers, including third party, using PROFINET/PROFIsafe. This enables implementation of the full machine emergency stop or plant-wide emergency stop function, whenever required.
In general, condition monitoring using ABB’s AC500 PLC, provides easy integration with all kinds of machinery systems, enabling precise management of an application’s real-time condition. This provides more efficient machines, predictable performance and significant reduction in maintenance costs.
Whether stand-alone condition monitoring or integrated into a machine or process control, the AC500 is suited to build optimized, self-analyzing automation solutions that simultaneously perform condition monitoring, control, protection, safety and data logger functions with one controller.
Planned maintenance rather than spontaneous repair ensures predictable performance. Approaching damage is identified very early. Costs in maintenance and lost production time are reduced. Plant availability is increased. Optimum utilization of the aggregates until real end of life is provided. It is simple to use, maintain, adapt or expand.
