Chartwell introduces TURCK’s new ARGEE technology, which empowers manufacturers to add logic to compatible I/O devices without a PLC, driving down the cost per I/O point and increasing flexibility in control. The ARGEE environment is accessible via an HTML5-compatible web browser, which eliminates the need for complex third-party software or licensing common with PLCs. The user can set condition and action statements that can be carried out by the I/O device. The application’s intuitive design includes a flow chart, similar to ladder logic, which allows for easy programing by users of all experience levels. By taking advantage of ARGEE on Turck’s multiprotocol Ethernet I/O devices, manufacturers are able to realize a better control solution, field logic controllers (FLCs).
