I/O for every task
The range of process I/O modules is complete, covering general-purpose analog and digital inputs and outputs at different ratings, as well as Pt100, thermocouple and pulse inputs. Specialized interfaces are provided for accurate digital positioning, switchgear integration, variable-speed motor
control, telecontrol and communication with other makes of programmable controllers.
There is space in the rack for up to 15 S100 I/O modules, providing capacity for up to 480 process signals, depending on types. The overall I/O capacity, however, can be expanded to as many as 2,500, using distributed I/O stations, communicating with the parent controller over a suitable field bus, e.g. Advant Fieldbus 100.
The communicative controller
Advant Controller 410 supports a wide range of communication protocols, making it easy to design the optimal control system architecture for every application. These
- DCN and eDCN
- RS 232
- Profibus DP
Advant Controller 410 consists of one rack, with space for up to four communication modules and 15 full-size I/O modules. The I/O rack is designed for installation in cabinets equipped with a swing-out frame, permitting access to both the front and back of the rack for ease of installation and maintenance.
The external connections are routed through connection units normally fitted inside, at the back of the cabinet. Cabinets with various protection classes are available, e.g. ventilated, tropical and sealed, with or without heat exchangers.
