The PACSystems RSTi-EP CPE 200 programmable automation controllers from Emerson reduces the need for skilled software engineering personnel and enables original equipment manufacturers (OEM) to successfully meet client needs. In order to avoid having to compromise performance for cost, CPE 200 controllers will offer massive programmable logic controller (PLC) capacity in a small, practical, and IIoT-ready form factor.
Today’s OEM machine makers must offer tools that are prepared to support analytics and give end users a competitive advantage through greater efficiency, speed, and quality if they want to stay in business. To program and deliver machine control systems on time and within budget while providing the performance, security, and flexible connectivity consumers demand can be challenging for builders as they create novel solutions for material handling, life sciences, and other fields. With built-in security-by-design, open programming, and open communications, the CPE 200 series addresses these issues and makes it easier to connect to external analytics software platforms while lowering the cost and complexity for OEMs and end users.
For flexible connectivity via fast Gigabit Ethernet, the controllers provide open communications through native, pre-licensed support for OPC UA Secure and other widely used industrial protocols. Engineering professionals may design and run the high-performance algorithms that enable specialized production strategies and cutting-edge automation technologies with the aid of IEC 61131 programming languages and C, the most well-liked and user-friendly programming language in the world.
