Control Technology "Janus" Smart Automation Controller


CTI designs and manufactures advanced control, communications and I/O products for process control. The 2500 Series® PLC system is a compatible replacement for the former Simatic® 505 PLC system, and includes state-of-the-art enhancements in functionality and performance. Products in the family include controllers, power supplies, bases, remote base controllers, analog and digital I/O, Ethernet TCP/IP, Modbus, DeviceNet networking modules and specialty I/O modules. CTI 2500 Series® products are installed in the plants of major industrial companies throughout the world. They are continuing a heavy development investment in this system, with plans for enhancements in the instruction set, programming tools, network connectivity, and I/O system. A micro-PLC family based on the same technology, and a line of compatible networked I/O are included in our long-term product road-map.
