Save time and material with our solutions for control systems

Programmable logic controllers (PLCs) and distributed control systems (DCSs) are essential control systems in industrial production today. They enable the control and automation of machinery and equipment, which increases productivity, reduces errors and improves safety at the workplace. While the PLC system is usually used to control a single machine or a single part of the production process, the distributed control system is used to control and monitor a broader range of machines and processes to ensure that the entire production process runs efficiently and reliably.

Weidmüller solutions for programmable logic controllers and distributed control systems for all common manufacturers such as Siemens, Honeywell, Emerson, ABB and Yokogawa not only ensure a smooth connection, but also reduce the amount of material and labour required for rewiring and retrofitting control systems. Our interfaces, which consist of standard connectors for connection to the system, matching PCB terminals for field connection and additional components, provide as an adapter between the system and field elements for clear structure in the control cabinet and without point-to-point cabling.



The comprehensive system offers connection solutions for all common PLC controls.



The compact PLC and DCS interface modules save valuable space in the control cabinet.



Retrofitting without rewiring of sensors and actuators from the field level saves up to 95 % time
