The upgraded LioN-Power Multi-protocol I/O Modules take fieldbus-independent automation capabilities to the next level. The addition of 16 universal digital input/output (16DIO) channels, paired with cross-protocol functionality spanning PROFINET, EtherNet/IP and EtherCAT, make for great versatility. “Flex-Bit Technology” also makes connecting legacy machines with different bitmaps simple. With the new LioN-Power IO-Link Hub with 16 digital inputs IO-Link devices, masters and hubs can easily be connected to efficiency process up to 132 I/O signals per system. Integration and configuration of IO-Link devices is also made easy through the TMG IO-Link Device Tool. The LioN-Power DCU1, the first multi-protocol distributed control unit with M12 power L-coding technology, now offers a 16DIO version. With UL 61010-1 approval, the LioN-Power 16DIO DCU can couple new and existing machines to an Ethernet network across PROFINET, EtherNet/IP and EtherCAT protocols – quickly transforming fieldbus machines into IP-ready devices. By delivering customized performance of automation functions within a single device, the DCU1 improves overall automation security and simplifies machine transparency.
