Custom-Design Networked Push Button Control
“Convenience is at the heart of industrial control design.”
We understand the challenges our customers face procuring, installing, integrating and validating push button controls for industrial automation. This is why we at Fortress have innovated our network technology to design tailored push button control solutions which are unique to our customers’ specific requirements. Most importantly, providing a convenient solution which integrates direct communication to PLC control, and provides control functionality alongside industrial processes to maximise uptime and productivity.
Push Button Control devices are offered with either PROFINET or EtherNet/IP protocols for non-safe communication and with PROFIsafe and CIP safety available for safety applications.
Networked operator controls can be designed with any combination of control elements such as buttons, lamps, emergency stops, or RFID with up to 40 non-safe I/O.
Select from a variety of connector set options tailored to your:
• power supply;
• data communication;
• external connection requirements.
“Did you know Fortress can now offer Power over EtherNet?”
Save money with just one connector and one cable on your product.
Connector solutions are designed for all common topologies from star to tree, and line to ring.
