Xycom announces network I/O products


Saline, Mich . - Xycom Automation , a subsidiary of Pro-face America, announced several new I/O products for the Graphic Logic Controller (GLC) and LogiTouch families of controllers.

Modules include a high-speed counter, single-axis positioning, and three 32-point, 24 Vdc I/O modules. Modules connect to the GLC's distributed I/O Flex Network system. The Flex Network allows a GLC or LogiTouch unit to control I/O points up to 12Mbps at up to 200-meter distance for maximum of 63 nodes and 1008 points.

The high-speed counter can be used as a linear counter, ring counter, or frequency counter. It accepts inputs from rotary encoders using either open collector or line driver connections, and can be used in the following four operation modes:

  • dc input/16-bit up counter, 2 channels

  • dc input/32-bit up counter, 1 channel

  • differential input, 2-phase line input/32-bit up/down counter, 1 channel

  • dc input/32-bit up/down counter.

The single-axis positioning unit can be used as a pulse output-type driver for a servo or stepping motor, and allows the GLC to perform as a single axis positioning controller. This module is capable of up to 90 points of positioning memory (ABS/INC) and can use CW or CCW pulse output. Output frequency ranges are 0 to 250 Kpps, 0 to 500 Kpps, 0 to 1 Mpps, and 0 to 2M pps. The maximum output pulses are 32-bit, allowing a range of +/- 2,147,483,648 pulses.

Other additions include three 32-point 24 Vdc modules including a 32-point input module, a 16-point input sink/source - 16-point output sink module, and a 16-point input sink/source - 16-point output source module. These 32-point modules provide higher density at a lower cost point than the existing 8- or 16-point modules.

Xycom Automation is a wholly owned subsidiary of Pro-face America, Inc., and provides marketing and sales for all Pro-face products in North, Central, and South America, and all Xycom products worldwide.
