Turck's New ARGEE Technology Turns I/O Devices into Field Logic Controllers (FLCs) for Flexible, Cost-effective Control
- Posted on May 24, 2016
Engineers, OEMs and integrators have struggled for years with how to balance the cost of PLCs with their I/O needs, and Turck’s new ARGEE technology solves this challenge. ARGEE empowers manufacturers to add logic to compatible I/O devices without a PLC, driving down the cost per I/O point and increasing flexibility in control.
The ARGEE environment is accessible via an HTML5-compatible web browser, which eliminates the need for complex third-party software or licensing common with PLCs. Inside the ARGEE environment, the user can set condition and action statements that can be carried out by the I/O device. The application’s intuitive design includes a flow chart, similar to ladder logic, which allows for easy programing by users of all experience levels.
By taking advantage of ARGEE on Turck’s multiprotocol Ethernet I/O devices, manufacturers are able to realize a better control solution – field logic controllers (FLCs).
