Integrated control solution from Jumo

May 2019 System Integration & Control Systems Design

Jumo has begun a new era of automation with the variTRON 500 central processing unit (CPU). In terms of technical possibilities, the system falls in the top class of embedded systems and proves itself with high speed performance and flexible operating philosophy.

Completely new hardware and software platforms have been used. During development, scalability was given the highest priority and the result is modular, flexible and above all, sustainable. The base of this CPU is a hardware platform with an 800 MHz processor that can be used as a single, dual or quad core variant, depending on the application.

The software has a modular structure based on a Linux platform, and enables excellent scalability for performance, memory and interfaces. Another notable feature is the customer-specific configuration and process data editor.

Several operator stations can be integrated into the system via Codesys TargetVisu or Codesys WebVisu, as well as up to 64 intelligent connection modules.

In the future, Jumo will provide visualisation libraries for individual customer-specific operation via CodesysS systems. Flexibility is also made possible by the integration of all important fieldbus systems such as Modbus RTU or TCP master and slave, Profinet IO controller, EtherCAT master, and OPC UA server. A Profinet IO device interface allows alternative connection to higher-level control systems via Modbus TCP.
