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!
