Axioline F can be operated on all key networks
26 February 2015
The Axioline F family of I/O products designed for installation in control cabinets is being expanded further: Along with new I/O components and function modules, the devices can now be operated on additional key networks.
Devices for connecting to EtherCAT and Modbus/TCP (UDP) networks now supplement the bus couplers for Profinet and Sercos 3. An additional bus coupler also enables connection to the Profibus fieldbus system.
In the function module product group, the Axioline F series is being expanded to include a solution that combines three serial interface types (RS232, RS485, and RS422) in just one terminal. This means reduced storage costs and flexible application.
The new digital input modules were designed especially for mechanical engineering tasks.
The AXL F DI 64/1 module has a channel density of just 0.9 mm DIN rail lengths per channel and offers the perfect functionality for applications with high channel levels. The new AXL DI 16/1 HS module, with a 5 µs update time, offers fast signals the quickest path to the controller, which enables the operation of applications with high machine speeds.
Two new 4 channel analogue modules, for both voltage and current, are now available as well as the 8 channel version. The new module, being narrower in design, down to 35mm from the 8 channels 54mm width.
Axioline F is the block-based modular I/O system for the control cabinet. To find out more about the benefits of Phoenix Contact’s modular solutions for machines, visit: www.phoenixcontact.co.uk/modular
