Flexible system concepts
can be easily achieved thanks to our system buses: both in central control cabinet installations and in decentralized systems.
Easier to install
as interfaces are avoided or completely integrated.
as the SEW-EURODRIVE system buses are optimally adjusted to the drive electronics and the controller and are preset.
Fast data exchange
ensures smooth processes and accurate status messages and therefore a system that operates economically and smoothly.
Integrated diagnostics concept
as components, network and tools are seamlessly integrated into one another.
In applications with our control and drive technology, we also recommend SEW-EURODRIVE system bus technologies as an alternative to standardized fieldbus or Industrial Ethernet networks.
This allows you to remain really flexible: SEW-EURODRIVE system buses support central system concepts with control cabinet installations as well as decentralized drive systems, and also combinations of both.
SEW-EURODRIVE system buses are seamlessly integrated into the unit hardware. This reduces the number of bus cables required and it is even possible to have structures without any bus cables.
Save on time and costs: besides the hardware integration, the software-side integration into the components and the startup and diagnostics software all help to achieve a system that operates economically and smoothly.
combines the advantages of reduced installation effort with the technology of Ethernet-based communication in a single innovative drive infrastructure solution:
CAN technology, which was developed for use in mobile applications is also used in automation:
In networks with our controllers and our drive technology, SBusPLUS provides not only optimal integration but also additional functions for simple and fast startup:
