Programless networking between KEYENCE sensors and Ethernet/IP™. Connecting a variety of sensors together expands the potential for your applications and boosts data gathering, visualization, and productivity on the manufacturing floor.
Formatting/command definition and processing during command transmission/reception can be performed on communication programs without using a ladder. In addition, various debugging functions are available to drastically reduce trial and error, the conventional method used repeatedly to identify the cause of a problem. These functions dramatically decrease complexity in communication programs.
PLC links can be established with PLCs from each vendor without the need for programming. A wide range of industrial Ethernet networks, which depend heavily on PLC manufacturers, are also supported. In addition, KV-X COM can communicate with KEYENCE sensors and other various communication devices, both via Ethernet and serial communication, without using a ladder. This allows for connectability to any device.
KV-X COM is compatible with four types of industrial Ethernet: EtherNet/IP™, CC-Link IE Field, EtherCAT, and PROFINET.
This one unit can connect to these types of networks that are popular in countries all over the world with no limits on the networks.
Support for EtherNet/IP™ compatible remote I/O systems. Anyone can finish configuring the settings with a single touch, so it is possible to easily perform batch monitoring of devices and sensors that are not equipped with communication functions over Ethernet.
