Flexi Soft Main Unit – FX3-CPU000000 (Part no: 1043783)

The Flexi Soft range of safety controllers by SICK are programmable, modularly expandable and easily integrable into various networks. The memory plug of the FX3-CPU stores the safety logic programming within which all input signals are monitored and processed. The FLEX BUS+ interface links all the modules and uses the input signals received to control system outputs.

The Flexi Soft Designer will upload and adjust device settings using an RS-232 interface on the main unit. The RS-232 port may be used for permanent diagnosis for your PLC and HMI as well. Supports various logical and application specific functions. Allows integration into existing PLC with up to 2 gateways that provides I/O status and Error/Status messaging. Each gateway supports at least 50 bytes of incoming and outgoing information.
