Integrating a pump into a BUS system in the shortest possible time and thus integrating it into a system concept - that is the task of system integrators who are involved in all sectors, in industry as well as in water utility or building technology, with all questions of the EICA (Electrical Instrumentation Control Automation).
Gundfos have now developed the EICA selection tool, to support with these questions.
With the help of the tool, the system integrator finds all information necessary for their specific project about the appropriate communication module. For this, only the pump to be installed and the desired BUS protocol type are to be selected. In addition to the appropriate communication module, the tool provides further information (interface description and resource files, wiring diagram, external libraries, commissioning). Particularly appealing are the function blocks for Siemens S7, which are available free of charge, as a programming example, with which the engineering effort (time!) drops significantly.
Conclusion: With the selection tool, Grundfos EICA technicians actively support the implementation of pump 4.0 solutions into the desired BUS system, making engineering faster and more efficient. A unique service in the pump world!
