The co. says its IEC-compliant function blocks make it easier to interface with Schneider Electric automation components, as well as other products that communicate via Profibus, Ethernet/IP, CAN-based networks and CANopen. Bus connections are provided by parameterization rather than programming. The user implements the function blocks in either the co.'s programming template or in the OEM's existing programming structure.
