Traditionally, a control box is based on relays and the functions are controlled via a wired handset (”Wire-to-function principle”).
OpenBus™ can fulfill the same basic needs. OpenBus is the technical platform in the control box that controls the movement of the actuators. In addition, OpenBus offers a lot of options that bring additional value into various applications for the customers and end-users.
OpenBus has been developed for LINAK Control Boxes
to ensure higher flexibility and logistical advantages in LINAK actuator systems. It is a LINAK proprietary standard; it is a cost-effective serial communication system for LINAK system solutions.
The nature of OpenBus makes it possible to attach external devices to the LINAK system via the digital Control Box. This means that it is prepared to “speak the same language” as other external devices via the standardized protocols. This improves the utilization options of LINAK systems, when attaching external devices/accessories.
