Fieldbus station for control cabinets

26 April 2013

Known for its modular fieldbus solutions and cost-effective machine and plant installations, the latest addition Murrelektronik's Cube family is Cube20S – a compact, efficient fieldbus station for control cabinets.

Of modular design, Cube20S connects slim input and output modules with a width of only 12.5mm for base modules with integrated bus nodes. Digital and analogue modules with two, four or eight channels are available, as well as function modules like counters or potential distributors.

Combining the standard output modules with Murrelektronik's safety relay MIRO Safe+ makes it possible to safely switch off non-safe outputs up to Category 3 PLd. Modules for active safety applications up to SIL3 and PLe are planned.

The fieldbus stations can be precisely configured according to suit the individual installation. Cube20S is available for the fieldbus systems Profibus, DeviceNet, CANopen, Profinet, Ethernet IP, Ethercat, and Modbus. An interface for Cube67 system is also coming soon. This wide variety of models and the short response times (up to 20 μs) make Cube20S suitable for a large number of applications.
