ECM – Ethernet Control Module

The ECM is the latest in the line of next generation programmable automation controllers. With the ability to handle detailed execution tasks through the cLogic engine, neatly manage I/O via the custom distribution board, and run certified programmable safety interlocks, the ECM is a one stop shop for your automation and control requirements. The compact footprint ECM allows you to save 15-40% on your automation and control costs versus other solutions, giving you a competitive edge.
