Trio Motion Technology Power Connect / P362
I/O module / Gateway
- Flexslice system / EtherCAT
- Simplicity 24V power sensors
- Expansion via EtherCAT Coupler
The P362 Flexslice Power Connect Module simplifies connection of three-wire sensors into the I/O system and removes the footprint and cost required for additional terminals. Easy wiring and multiple push-fit connections also make installation quicker and simpler.
The pins of the 2 x single-row push-in connectors (Power Connector 1 and Power Connector 2) are joined together to form 2 isolated banks of commoned connections. With 0V connected to the lower connector and 24V to the upper connector, the LED gives an indication that power is on.
The EtherCAT Flexslice system is designed for fast, flexible extensions 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 jack can be used to connect other EtherCAT devices in the same line.
The EtherCAT Coupler supports up to 16 input/output modules with a positive mechanical interlock and bus connector, enabling a reliable EBUS connection through the backplane. The complete assembly can be mounted on DIN rail. The coupler converts the passing telegrams from the Ethernet 100BASE-T into 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.
Trio's Flexslice input/output modules provide a robust, fast and flexible solution for both motion control and general automation. EtherCAT cycle times of up to 125μs are supported and the bus coupler uses EBUS technology to bring all submodules onto the EtherCAT network with no performance degradation.
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.
