PLC for process, high availability & safety solutions

Part of Modicon

Modicon M580 ePAC is the controller which can help hybrid manufacturers achieve better, measurable, earlier ROI and Up to 100% returns on their project investments in less than three months.

Modicon M580 Safety configuration with a mix of standard X80 & Safety I/O
  • Features

    The Modicon M580 ePAC and Safety PLC both use the same Modicon X80 I/O range and EcoStruxure™ Control expert (formerly known as "Unity Pro") software for programming and configuration. Process controllers (not safety Controllers) can also be applied as part of the EcoStruxure™ Hybrid DCS (formerly known as PES) system.

    The high-end Modicon M580 Ethernet Programmable Automation Controller (ePAC) features redundant controllers, safety controllers (safety PLC) with native Ethernet, and cybersecurity embedded in its core. It brings:

    • Native Ethernet capabilities
    • High performance
    • High availability for processors & networks
    • Common Safety SIL3 rating available (with M580 Safety PLC and Safety X80 I/Os including safety power supplies)
    • Enhanced cyber-security
    • More flexibility in design and greater agility for your operations
    • Smooth modernization solutions
