2500 Series - Slice I/O
Intelligent remote I/O Solution

The 2500 Series® Slice I/O System is designed for use in a broad range of applications, including those that require discrete and analog control. It is compatible the the 2500 Series® System, and offers modularity down to a single module, without the need for an  I/O base and RBC.  Slice I/O modules operate from 24VDC power and communicate with a remote 2500 Series® CPU using Ethernet to read/write directly to the PLC memory or I/O image table.  This allows transparent integration into the 2500 Series® system without the requirement for any complicated configuration steps.  Ethernet connection to the CPU can be accomplished using the on-board port on 2500-Cxxx Processors, or using a 2572 / 2572-A Ethernet module.  Note that when using 2572 or 2572-A modules, Slice I/O can be connected even to legacy Siemens® and Texas Instruments PLCs.

Features
  • Connection to CTI and legacy Siemens®/TI CPUs over Ethernet using CAMP
  • Connection to DCS or other automation controllers using Modbus-TCP
  • Several models with differing I/O capabilities to customize the solution to your needs
  • Serial RS232/485 and 900MHz radio options for additional communications flexibility (900MHz wireless subject to import limitation, depending on country)
  • Extensive intelligent features for processing attached I/O signals:
  • Totalisation, filtering, forcing, inversion, runtime, and counting on digital inputs
  • Frequency out (with PWM) and synchronization on digital outputs
  • Filtering, averaging, scaling and totalization on analog inputs
  • Data logging and trending
  • All module configuration done using a simple web browser interface
  • Wide –40°C to +70°C operating temperature range
2500 Series - Classic
Future of TI and 505

The 2500 Series® Classic Programmable Controller System is designed for use in a broad range of applications, including those that require discrete and analog control. The system is designed to be a compatible replacement for Texas Instruments and Siemens 505® systems. Components include the CPU and the support devices that provide operator interface, communication, I/O control and power. These systems perform the same functions as relays, static control, or card logic control systems.



2500 Series - Compact
Compact Control Solution

The 2500 Series® Compact I/O System is designed for use in a broad range of applications, including those that require discrete and analog control. It is compatible with the 2500 Series® System, but offers a much smaller form factor.  Components include the Base, Power Supply, Remote Base Controller (allows connection to any Profibus Master) and  I/O modules.
HMI Solutions
Powered by zenon HMI/SCADA

2500 Series® HMI/SCADA Systems are designed to allow easy connection and configuration of HMI & SCADA applications on CTI 2500 Series® Processors. Three product families are available:

HMI Touch-Panels are available in 15" and 12" sizes and are based on the latest Intel® Atom™ processor technology and feature a high-brightness LCD panel for easy readability under industrial conditions.
