product description

ABB offers programmable logic controls of different performance levels. These can be extended by adding modules and thus adapted to requirements. For example, the firm Matrikon provides the “Universal connectivity server” for the OPC couplings (Classic and UA).

It handles Modbus and numerous other protocols and thus enables flexible coupling to control systems.
