Digitronic's cam switch unit CamCon DC300 has been discontinued.
We were recently informed that the IC chip for the communication of the cam controller module CamCon DC300 is no longer manufactured and are no longer available. We will no longer offer electronic cam switch units from the CamCon DC300 series beginning 12/31/2021.
As an alternative product, we recommend the cam switch unit CamCon DC190 from the Digitronic product range.
In recent years, many of our customers have already switched to the DC190 cam controller series. In addition to the fastest cycle time of 80uS, the CamCon DC190 offer an Ethernet communication interface for connection to existing Siemens PLCs over PROFINET or other PLCs using Ethernet IP. The programming is performed via the web-based PC software, Digisoft-WEB or via bus systems such as e.g.: Profibus, Ethernet, etc. For additional information on the CamCon DC190, you can download the manual. Technical data can be viewed on page 60.
For systems using a PLC without Ethernet communication interface, we have the cam switch unit CamCon DC16 with the Profibus module CamCon CP16 as an alternative product for the communication to a Siemens PLC over Profibus.
