GE Intelligent Platforms introduces Durus Plus controller
Typical applications for the Durus Plus would be lighting control, conveyor control, water level control or motor monitoring where the unit can replace timers and counters for increased reliability.
The Durus controller complements GEs existing line of controllers and provides a rugged design filled with state-of-the-art features. It is built to take on the industrial environment with standard features like a built-in Operator Interface, a wide range of communications options, expansion slots, and a solid slide-and-snap mechanical interlock to expansion modules. Its very competitive price provides users even more choice in a controller product.
Durus controllers include features such as easy to use built-in display/keypad, high current outputs, multiple communication options, and are very affordable. They can be programmed using both the built-in display and keypad or with the Durus controllers free programming software.
The new Durus Plus features additional functionality above and beyond the Durus:
