The MS102 is part of the MS100 product range and is designed as a control panel with alarm functionality.
The MS100 series panels are control and indication panels for a simple Modbus connection to a PLC based system, whereby the MS100 panels act as a Modbus slave. The addition of a MS101 Ethernet connection panel adds the Ethernet connection. If an array of panels is used, one MS101 can be used to get access all panels in the array.
Multiple panels can be daisy chained to create a field of panels for all kind of controls and indications. Each button and text field is illuminated which can be dimmed via the Modbus communication.
It is the combination of illuminated buttons with insert text labels which is a unique features of these panels.
The MS100 panels are mounted with a stainless steel bracket which is placed in a cut-out hole. The MS102 can be connected outside the console and then simply clicked into the bracket.
