From Full Stop to Operation in Less than One Second Kubler's PROFINET IO Encoders Support Fast Start Up

From Full Stop to Operation in Less than One Second Kubler's PROFINET IO Encoders Support Fast Start Up

Time is money. This applies especially to cost-intensive industrial plants. Every even a short downtime has a negative impact. Repeated start-up times add up and become costly interruptions. No wonder then that people looked for a technical solution to reduce these times. And they found it. The Fast Start Up (FSU) enables a system to start up in much less than a second. The PROFINET IO encoders...
