What make a Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) so valuable?
I recently attended a successful Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) for the electromechanical ADE actuators that we supply during the renovation of the...
All 16 outputs are source (PNP) type and electrically isolated. Outputs and power connection are via 2 x single row plugin screw terminals. The Flexslice module indicates the status of the output signal via LEDs.
The EtherCAT Flexslice System is designed for fast, flexible expansion of motion applications and can be used with Trio or 3rd Party EtherCAT Masters. The Coupler is connected to the network via the top Ethernet interface. The bottom RJ45 socket can be used to connect other EtherCAT devices on the same line.
The EtherCAT Coupler supports up to 16 input / output modules with a positive mechanical lock and bus connector, enabling a reliable EBUS connection through the backplane. The complete assembly can be mounted on DIN rail. The link converts the passing telegrams from the Ethernet 100BASE-T to the EBUS signal format.
In the EtherCAT network, the Coupler can be installed at any position in the Ethernet line, making it suitable for use near the master or remotely.
The Flexslice input / output modules from Trio provide a robust, fast and flexible solution for both motion control and general automation. EtherCAT cycle times of up to 125μsec are supported and the bus coupler uses EBUS technology to bring all submodules onto the EtherCAT network without sacrificing performance.
EtherCAT slave nodes (Flexslice modules) are connected via the Flexslice EBUS and the EtherCAT connector. Total number of slave nodes can be up to 128 including I / O and more complex devices.
