PS 6000 - flexibility with I/O

Open, manufacturer-independent bus systems will become established for I/O and communications applications as part of control and automation technology. The unique feature of the PS 6000 welding controller is its I/O flexibility. PS 6000 modules are flexible when it comes to designing the input and output assemblies. They can be equipped with a parallel I/O box or with standardized serial sensor actuator bus interfaces such as PROFIBUS, INTERBUS, and DEVICE NET. Simply connecting the respective assembly is all that is required to configure the PS 6000 control and power section modules.

This translates to a wide variety of applications along with a cost-effective way to realize future extensions or modernization measures.
