- Compact aluminium housing with IP20 and integrated top hat rail mounting
The aluminium module is extremely compact and offers the possibility of top hat rail mounting. All interfaces are quickly and conveniently available on the front panel.
Using the 3-wire connection technology, all sensors and actuators can be connected directly to the module. The phoenix clamps used ensure a simple and extremely robust connection, which makes the EC-DIO32 very resistant and process-safe. Each IO block of the device is galvanically isolated and is supplied with voltage separately. Thus, different voltages can be applied to one module for the operation of emergency stop circuits, e.g. safety doors.
Two RJ45 sockets for EtherCAT and CAN are provided on the module, which enables simple connection with other modules via Ethernet patch cables. In this way, decentralised use of the module is also possible. The module automatically detects the type of fieldbus network it is in.
Due to the configurability of the IO blocks, the device offers completely new possibilities for signal processing. The user now has the possibility to freely select both the use of the module and the design of the machine network. In addition, each individual block can be addressed.
In addition to the inputs and outputs, it has a powerful microcontroller that handles the acquisition of the sensors, the control of the actuators and the EtherCAT protocol. Additionally a relay contact (changeover) can be used as a safety function. If the guarding from the master fails, the module switches to STOP mode.
Various diagnostic options make the device an ideal solution for EtherCAT networks. The power supply of the blocks can be read back in analog mode as well as the levels at the individual inputs and outputs. Also a digital monitoring of the outputs is implemented.
