Is having lots of cables causing you hassle? Do you experience many setbacks due to cable breakages and disconnections in your facilities?
In this case, the SMC’s fieldbus system EXW1/EX600-W is the solution for you.
EXW1/EX600-W is a decentralised industrial wireless fieldbus system which allows several remote units to be connected to a base unit without having to use communication cables.
Although it’s suitable for all industrial sectors, most of the applications to date have been for robots and robot peripherals. The power packs found in systems such as robots subject the communication cables in them to extreme twists and turns, eventually causing them to fatigue and break. With SMC’s unique wireless control systems for industrial applications, we can basically eliminate any cables carrying electrical control signals.
SMC's wireless fieldbus control system is compact, modular and easy to install. It can save you time, money and trouble by reducing the amount of cabling and downtime required for your machines. It also offers secure, reliable and noise-free communication using frequency hopping and data encryption in the 2.4 GHz ISM band.
Our wireless fieldbus system is versatile and can be adapted to any application. It is especially suitable for tool changes in robot arms and rotary or indexing tables, where cabling can be cumbersome and limiting. It also allows you to modify your machine layout easily and quickly connect and start up your devices.
With SMC's wireless fieldbus control system, you can enjoy the benefits of wireless technology without compromising on performance or quality. Contact us today to find out more about how we can help you improve your productivity and efficiency with our innovative solution.
