Decentralized automation shifts the coordinates of modern industrial production.

Decentralized control and intelligent I/O technology enables agile production concepts, modular machines and offline testing.

Your benefits: With flexible machine construction you can achieve shorter commissioning times - with scalable production you can better cope with order fluctuations. 

Turck supports you with automation solutions that are optimized for installation without control cabinets and distributed intelligence. You define how far the distribution of intelligence is optimal for your production and your machines. The fields of application of decentralized solutions range from condition monitoring and modular machines to track-and-trace and machine safety.

Ethernet in the Ex area to Optimize Processes

excom Ethernet allows process and status data to be transmitted and analyzed simultaneously up to zone 0 — without any intervention in existing control systems.


The Machine Speaks: IO-Link

The bidirectional IO-Link interface is key for optimizing digital processes. Whether replacing plug-and-play sensors, diagnosing the machine or sensor status, or identifying devices, IO-Link is essential for paving the way for efficient, digital production. 

Industry-optimized Cloud Services

Turck Cloud Solutions has been developed to meet the IIoT requirements of industrial customers. These requirements include encrypted communication for maximum security, plug-and-play dashboards for remote maintenance or automatic alarm messages. The perfect cloud for industrial applications — hosted by Turck or on customer-owned servers.

Transparency in Production and Logistics

RFID systems identify and locate goods, from goods-in and the production stage right through to retail. Turck combines its comprehensive IP67 RFID portfolio of HF and UHF technology with the integration expertise of Turck Vilant Systems, making it one of the industry's leading specialists. 

Separate, Supply, Protect - Even in the Smallest Control Cabinet

The IMXK interface devices have been specially developed for installation in flat control cabinets. They are just as narrow as standard devices, but with a depth of 77 millimeters, they also fit inside compact control cabinets and other small enclosures.

High Bandwidths for Industry 4.0

The TBEN-L-SE-M2 Ethernet switch in IP67 with Gbit high-speed backbone enables the shortest link-up times and rapid data flow from I/O modules, motors and IP cameras. The switch provides maximum security through a built-in firewall, NAT routing and virtual LANs (VLAN).

Sensor Solutions – Versatile and Intelligent

Measuring position and distance or detecting objects and fluids – demanding tasks in automation require smart solutions. Turck therefore has sensors in its product range that are not only particularly robust and precise, but IO-Link empowers them to be clever all-rounders.

Smart Flow Monitoring

Delta flow monitoring and Quick-Teach make it easy to commission the FS+ flow sensor. The intuitive operating concept with capacitive buttons ensures the device is impervious up to IP6K9K without compromising on the great appearance. And thanks to the modular mechanical concept, the appropriate FS+ is available in the shortest possible time.

Find the Right One Fast: Encoders from Turck

An encoder should function in the way that best suits the application. Turck's portfolio ranges from classic efficiency encoders to premium encoders capable of taking contactless measurements. The output type and frame size, as well as the shaft type and shaft diameter are key criteria when it comes to selecting an appropriate encoder.

Pressure Measurement 4.0

The robust PS+ pressure sensors offer users the next level of pressure measurement: The intuitive operating concept makes setting up the sensors easier and IO-Link enables diagnostic functions for predictive maintenance. When critical pressures are reached, the bi-color display changes to red to provide on-site indication that action is required.
