When we ask our customers, we see convenience valued as the most important feature of operator controls. When operating machinery, having the device which controls operation local to the machine maximises productivity and response times. Fortress configurable operator controls can be customised with safe and non-safe I/O to provide all of the functionality required for a task in one easy to install the device.
Interested in what capabilities can a Networked Control Device have?
Control WHO can perform specific tasks with your hardware. The RFID badge feature (shown in white) can be added to any networked device using PROFINET or EtherNet/IP.
This can be retrofitted to any existing interlock system to control when a logic controller or PLC unlocks based on the user who requests access – ensuring only trained personnel are performing specific tasks.
