B&R Cable Redundancy

B&R Cable Redundancy

Cable redundancy is often a requirement in process automation. This type of cabling is also a topic in system manufacturing. Long cabling distances play a large role in both application fields. Cable feedback is generally problematic when closing a ring. Topology freedoms that can offer unlimited tree structures with double cabling in POWERLINK are much more important. When using a device with...
