- Setting up local network with Windows 7 to communicate with a weigh module
- Integrating a weigh module into an Allen-Bradly PLC-System
- Integrating a weigh module into Siemens PLC System
The present and future of network technologies in production are based on the Industrial Ethernet standard. Common solutions using this technology are PROFINET IO RT and EtherNet/IP. Sensors and actuators that comply with those standards can be easily integrated into PLC systems if vendors provide the right tools and designed installationfriendly products.
