A modular, flexible architecture and an extensive range of networks and Fieldbus communication devices combine to make Modicon Quantum an ideal automation platform for continuous or semi-continuous industrial processes, as well as for large infrastructures.
The product of more than 25 years experience in the field of redundancy systems, Modicon Quantum is the perfect solution for applications that require high control system availability. This offer is therefore inherently suited to critical applications, such as petrochemicals, metals, cement, energy, tunnels, airports and water treatment. It can be used in many fields from Food & Beverage to the pharmaceutical industry. Certified by TUV Rheinland Group and IEC61508 complaint, some modules of the Modicon Quantum can be used in applications where functional safety is necessary. A configuration which combines functional safety and redundancy is also available.
This automation platform provides unrivalled treatment capacity together with an expandable memory size. It can receive the complete project, deal with very complex data structures, time and date stamping of diagnostics information as well as storage of recipes and traceability of information.
A Modicon Quantum automation platform configuration uses the following product families: Rack, Power supply, Central processing unit, Communication, Input/Output, Analogue, and Metering.
