OP 50M

Optimized human-machine interaction employing the Sercos® III and EtherCAT® real-time field bus systems, combined in one single hand-held control device, finally makes it possible to connect said device to the controls of different manufacturers. The OP 50 M is the only compact hand-held control device in the world, operating with Sercos® III and EtherCAT®. The web visualization technology allows for open configuration of the user interface. In sequence, one device can be operated at multiple locations of one production site by way of a special interface for different machine controls. An integrated flashlight allows for pointed illumination of the work area and the compact design makes for easy and flexible handling.
