Intelligent Ethernet Systems make PLC more effective

With field buses, the generation change to the Ethernet is well underway. At the same time, the application area of programmable controllers (PLC) is being extended to previously “critical” applications. Although a PLC is ideal for managing I/O at low speed – with a rapid acquisition of measurements, signal analysis and value calculation, the PLC has until now met its limits in many cases. Using an example of a measuring system integrated in a crankshaft test bench, the following article describes how intelligent Ethernet I/O modules, Ethernet and a standard protocol such as TCP/IP can be used to carry out complex “rapid” measuring tasks or signal processing (e.g. determining average values) simply, reliably and cost-effectively via a PLC.
