The Master is the heart and mind behind the BLU LT system and has been designed for housing in the machine cabinet.
It is compact and very easy to install, which means that it can be used in very small spaces. The master comes in two formats, 2 SLOT and 4 SLOT which means it can respectively house up to two or four function nodes. The machine sensors are connected to the function nodes. The master governs all the information coming from the function nodes and handles the communication flows with the machine and the plant thanks to the presence of the fieldbus module and Ethernet communication port. It handles communication with the operator via the Human Interface that can be shown either on the Marposs Operator Panel or on external control units. The simple hardware and software reconfigurability means the system can be adapted to the specific needs of each machine tool.
