ABB - AC500-XC
We provide a reliable and powerful platform to design and create scalable, cost-effective and flexible automation solutions. Our platform should be functional and operational - even under rough environmental conditions. Therefore we develop the extreme Conditions versions.
The benefits from the AC500 PLC platform like one Automation Builder engineering suite, I/O modules, scalability and flexibility, high performance communication, libraries and web services are combined with resistance to
- High humidity
- Salt mist
- High altitude
- Hazardous gases
- Temperature: from -40 to + 70 °C.
The AC500-XC range replaces expensive cabinets by its built-in protection against dirt, water, gases and dust. Many traditional practices such as HVAC for the panel, shock absorbers, door sealing etc. are not required.
AC500-S Safety PLC range - extreme conditions XC modules
- Applicable for harsh environmental applications like crane, hoist, winch, robots, wind (offshore and onshore), solar etc.
- Physical dimensions, basic electrical characteristics and software compatibility correspond with the standard AC500-S version.
- Engineering and operations are much more cost-efficient since spending money on special cabinets and cabling practices can be avoided.
