FX3-CPU1 - Flexi Soft controller with 2 EFI connections

Flexi Soft is a programmable, expandable safety control system capable of being integrated into various networks. The EFI interface (Enhanced Function Interface) is a two wire communication between the safety sensor and controller.

Flexi Link allows you to combine up to four Flexi Soft stations via EFI for safe communication. Only FX3-CPU1 (or greater) main modules can be used in a Flexi Link system, the connection of FX3-CPU0 modules are not possible.

All EFI sensors can be connected to Flexi Soft, and be accessed and programmed via Flexi Soft's RS232 connection.

This main system module monitors and processes all input signals via the safety logic stored in the memory plug. These signals then switch outputs on the system through the FLEX BUS+ interface which connects all the units together.

It has a RS232 interface which can be used to upload or change the Flexi Soft system settings. It can also be used for permanent diagnosis, using a PLC or HMI for example.

Please note: The system plug must be ordered separately.
