Special Function Module

Special Function Modules / Technology Modules for PLC, DCS & PAC


Special Function Modules save PLC computing power and reduce development stages everywhere where data cannot be processed by standard I/O modules. They are also used to upgrade PLC modules so that they can handle wireless communication standards like Bluetooth Low Energy, Wireless Hart or NFC but also wired communication like EtherNet/IP, Profibus, Ethercat, SERCOS III or IO-Link. Special Function Modules designs from Texas Instruments are made to help customers define their solution faster and accelerate their development phase. The designs can be used for counting applications which need rapid measurements and accurate timing, encoder signal processing or general sensing applications with small or non-standard output signals which need to be preprocessed before they are sent, over wire or wirelessly, to either a transducer or a PLC.
