Turck has expanded its line of BL20 economy modules with DeviceNet gateways to augment its current Profibus-DP and CanOpen gateways for the BL20 economy system.
The gateways provide a cost-effective solution for expanding fieldbus I/O. Up to 32 I/O modules, including digital and analog, can be connected to each gateway, to handle up to 512 digital I/O points or 128 analog I/O points on a single gateway. Users can optionally select digital and analog I/O combined on a single node. BL20 gateways use Turck’s I/Oassistant software package for configuration, parameter setup, documentation, commissioning, and diagnostic functions. The package may be downloaded free at the company Website.
Gateways are compatible with standard BL20 slices, including new motor starter modules with SWire communication technology, which consists of a single I/O slice within the BL20 node and uses ribbon cable media to daisy-chain to the motor starters. Gateways can accommodate up to three SWire slices for a total of 48 non-reversing motor starters (16 per slice), or 24 reversing motor starters (8 per slice). Motor starters range in size from .08 to 20 hp.
The gateways are compatible with Turck’s RFID system, BL ident, which can read and write data on-the-fly using 13.56 MHZ technology, even with speeds up to 22 mph.
