Planners strive to optimize their project planning process and ensure high-quality automation documentation. When the maintenance of component libraries requires only a minimum effort, resources can be used more effectively. Pepperl+Fuchs now supports project planners with free EPLAN macros for our LB Remote I/O modules and Multi Function Terminals.
Macros for EPLAN Electric P8 are available on specific model number pages of our website. The macros allow users to natively integrate the LB Remote I/O modules and Multi Function Terminals in their planning and documentation. Prolonged waiting time is not an issue because the CAD and CAE data for the respective product is immediately available. Working with datasheets always bears the risk of transfer and interpretation errors. By using the macros, this risk is eliminated as is the time consuming manual creation of symbols. Planning projects are quickly completed.
This device is a configurable, universal module because each channel can be used in the modes AI, AO, DI, DO. A combination of analog and binary E/A is also possible. Customers choose which specific setup is used for their respective application.
The bus coupler for MODBUS TCP Remote I/O LB8111A2 brings inputs and outputs from sensors and actuators to Ethernet and enables Modbus communication via Ethernet. As a common communication standard, Ethernet comes with advantages like consistent transfer of extensive data volumes and enables a continuous extension of planning activities.
The multi-function terminal allows maintenance work in explosion hazardous areas without a hot work permit. Due to the 2-stage removal mechanism, any sparks remain in the flameproof part of the terminal when a module is being disconnected. This ensures that the spark has been terminated and that the module is no longer under voltage when being removed.
Download all of the EPLAN macros for the LB Remote I/O modules or the Multi Function Terminals here:
