New Universal Communication Terminal for Inline I/O
- Published: Thursday, 30 August 2012 13:46
The modular Inline I/O system has been expanded to include a new communication terminal. In the industrial automation environment, interfaces like RS232, RS485, or RS422 serial communication are still widely used.
For instance, printers, barcode scanners, data loggers, and weighing systems are integrated into the I/O system via a serial interface. There is now a combined solution available for the Inline I/O system that integrates the three serial interfaces in just one terminal. As a consequence, these standard function blocks reduce warehousing and programming costs.
The IB IL RS UNI-PAC Inline terminal was developed according to the latest state-of-the-art technology. This means a complete expansion of all RS232 handshake signals and data transfer rates of up to 250,000 baud. If the standard baud rates are not sufficient, they can be parameterized as required for the particular application. The communication terminals can be flexibly used as a result of the variable process data width, which can be changed depending on the application. Furthermore, they support various protocols such as transparent, end-end, or XON/XOFF.
