Electronic controllers

Controllers CECCThe controllers of the CECC series are electronic compact controllers for the low to medium power range. The concept corresponds to the "all-in-one" approach. The controllers have integrated inputs and outputs as well as different communication interfaces and are designed for installation in a control cabinet (IP20 degree of protection).The product series consists of three variants with different technical features. The CECC-D is designed for simple applications in which mainly digital signals are processed. With the CECC-LK, communication is addressed via an IO-Link®. The CECC-S with its encoder interface is designed for special applications with counting functions. All controllers have an Ethernet interface as well as a CAN bus master. The controllers are programmed with CODESYS V3 (IEC 61131-3).
Control systems CECXThe control system CECX is the modular control platform from Festo with IP20 degree of protection. In addition to the compact controller series CECC and the embedded controller CPX-CEC in the CPX system, the modular controller CECX extends the product range in the top performance range and thus meets the demanding requirements for PLC functions and motion control functions.The CECX is available in two versions: as the CODESYS-V2 controller without motion functions (CECX-X-C1) and as a motion controller (CECX-X-M1). The main difference between the two controllers is that the CECX-X-M1 is equipped with the additional software package "SoftMotion" within CODESYS V2 and can thus realise coordinated multi-axis movements.All optional and peripheral modules (digital, analogue etc.) as well as fieldbus modules can be used in both variants.The characteristics of the CECX make it ideally suited to provide excellent support for pneumatic and electric drive technology from Festo. In terms of its functionality, the controller CECX is designed as a master controller and motion controller. It is a powerful control unit that can execute both comprehensive PLC functions as well as multi-axis movements with interpolation. The wide range of available functional assemblies (digital, analogue, counters, etc.) makes the CECX a universal controller that is suitable for general machine building applications. In addition to the hardware modules, the functionality of the system is mainly defined by the software functions within CODESYS.The following libraries are available:- Communication drivers- Technology modules (e. g. PID controllers)- SoftMotion library for motion control- PLCopen modules, part 1/2 - Cam disc editor- CNC editorIn terms of communication, the CECX provides:- CAN bus interface- Profibus master/slave modules- Ethernet interface - Serial interface modules (RS232/485)- Modbus® TCP server
Individual controllers CESAGateways are used to enable communication between different systems. With the CESA gateway, Festo offers the possibility of connecting the AS-i network with higher-level bus systems. There are different types of gateway available. Gateways for CANopen and Profibus systems can be selected. The gateways act as masters for AS-i communication and as slaves for the higher-level bus system. Software is available for parameterising the devices. Commissioning and diagnostics can also be carried out directly on the device without software.
