The Automationworx for Remote Systems (ReSy) function modules library from Phoenix Contact is designed for tasks arising in modern remote control systems. It enables the user to set up local substations and remote control centers using standard hardware components, e.g., from the Inline I/O system. Data transfer between the substations and the control center takes place via wired systems such as dedicated lines, analog or digital dial-up links, and wireless services via radio and mobile communications. Connection to existing systems is made possible through a variety of open interfaces for the standard Interbus, Profibus, DeviceNet, and CANopen fieldbus systems via serial interfaces as well as directly via Ethernet.
The technological modules of ReSy enable the user to easily and quickly set up different lines of remote control. They are available for public networks with an analog modern or ISDN interface and for private networks, GSM networks, SMS and radio connections. In addition to the remote control capabilities, the control hardware’s open configurability and the programming in conformance with IEC 61131 offers the possibility of adopting control functions into the central stations or substations.
