Wieland offers samosPRO Compact module with integrated PROFINET support



Jul. 5, 2016 – Wieland Electric says it has integrated PROFINET communication into its samosPRO Compact family of programmable safety controllers.

According to the company, the new module allows machine design engineers to “seamlessly” integrate non-safe peripheral devices into the program, and to relay controller information back to these devices using PROFINET communication. The samosPRO Compact SP-COP2-ENI base controller enables data exchange between Ethernet-based field devices in a machine or building engineering network. It is also compatible with Wieland’s samosPLAN5+ programming software, which provides design engineers with simulation tools, and troubleshooting and reporting functions.
