The variable flagship: thanks to the Ethernet connectivity, the FP7 is a true data collector and, thanks to full web integration, "Industry 4.0 ready". Up to 64 different units can be controlled with one CPU, the modular structure takes up little space and makes the FP7 a universal controller for a variety of applications.
Equipped with a large memory capacity (up to 220k program steps or up to 500k data words) and a high-speed processor (11ns/step)
Local & remote connectivity
The standard CPU boards with Ethernet interface offer connectivity without limits, from remote programming to monitoring and data logging to FTP server, MEWTOCOL (client/server), EtherNet/IP and Modbus TCP. Together with the Mini-USB and the RS232C port, it is possible to connect up to 272 devices. Supported services include FTP client/server (file exchange), HTTP Client (data exchange / services with a HTTP server / cloud), and sending e-mails with attachments. The integrated web server allows access to the variables of the system / program or diagnostic information using a predefined page or a user-defined page created with the graphical tool "Web Creator" based on HTML5 technology. HTML pages can be viewed from any Internet browser even from mobile devices (smartphones and tablets).
Security & reliability
Built-in program backup. Production can resume in the event of fault. Original program is immediately to hand.
Operational and program editing events are logged. Automatic logs of program download and upload are useful, especially for program debugging.
Hour meter operation. The built-in clock/calendar function can be adjusted via Ethernet.
