Decentralized Installation Innovative Solutions with Cube67 and Cube67+

26 January 2015

CUBE67+: THE PLUS IS FOR… • An increased number of modules up to 2 x 16 modules • Increased cable lengths for installations up to 2 x 30 meters • Modules that can be installed at any position on the hybrid cable • Daisy chaining of the power supply at the bus node

More modules, longer cables, increased performance: these are the outstanding features of the new innovative bus node Cube67+. It perfectly complements the tried and tested Cube67 system. With Cube67+ , Murrelektronik offers customers even more options for creating field bus installations in a very economical manner.

Cube67 wins over customers with its modular and flexible structure. This product line offers a wide number of various modules in which the ports are designed for multifunctional use and are available with M8 and M12 connection. All these features can create installations that solve the most special of needs. Because of this and the many diagnostic options provided, the Cube67 system has become a reputed symbol of cost savings in field installation.

With Cube67+, Murrelektronik now offers customers many additional advantages.

The heart of this innovation is a modified bus node where up to two times 10 modules can be connected. This provides a significant advantage and enables control of almost twice as many signals and actuators. Now it is possible to considerably reduce the number of bus nodes in comprehensive installations helping to save costs.

Cube67+ can also create installations over even longer distances. So far, cable lengths of four times 10 meters have been possible. Now, with Cube67+, this has been increased to up to two times 30 meters which is very useful for Ctrack applications. With Cube67+, engineers can connect the modules at any position along the system cable which provides added flexibility.

Last but not least, another advantage is that the new Cube67+ bus node can connect additional modules with extended functionalities for IO link or RS232.

ECONOMIC DECENTRALIZATION – MODULAR, COMPACT AND RUGGED
• The I/O level is where it's needed – right in the machine, and close to the sensors and actuators, – not occupying one large area or being concentrated in the control cabinet
•Reduced dimensions ensure compact and space-saving machine design
• LEDs close to each sensor/actuator
• Easily expandable
• Shortest sensor and actuator cabling
• Reduces cable costs
• Saves space in the machine or the control cabinet
• Switching matrices is no longer needed
