Description

Belden is a leader in the design and manufacture of broadcast, enterprise, and industrial connectivity and networking products for many industries. The company's products enable you to create end-to-end signal transmission solutions that meet demanding standards for data, sound, and video applications. Today, we are going to take a look at the LioN-M I/O module from Lumberg Automation. This EtherNet/IP module suits industrial automation applications. Ethernet/IP is probably the most common network standard in automation applications. This LioN-M I/O module supports the latest Ethernet/IP protocols and connects sensors and actuators directly to control systems. The module features an integrated dual port switch for use in line, star, and ring network topologies. The I/O modules also suit a high-availability ring topology: so if the connection goes down, the device level ring protocol switches to an alternative ring segment without interrupting machinery operations. The I/O modules provide 16 digital channels. In one version the channels are used as inputs. In the universal version, it can provide both inputs and outputs in any desired combination and without any need for individual parameterization. A diagnostic display for each I/O port helps pinpoint any fault. The same information is also available through the Ethernet/ IP protocol, facilitating detailed analysis on a central control and display system -- without any need to configure the module. The arrangement of the M12 I/O sockets simplifies installation process -- even T distributors can be installed with ease. Connections at a glance: --Power supply connects through two four-pole 7/8-in. sockets. Rated voltage of 24 V and a range of 11 to 30 V. --Eight black I/O sockets, each of which can send and/or receive two digital signals. Five-pole A-coded M12 connectors. Each of these digital channels has a rated output current of up to 1.6 A, and a maximum current density of 9 A. --Two network ports with four-pole D-coded M12 connectors. -- Set up IP address through rotary switches. The I/O modules are configured directly via the user interface of the control unit. --The I/O modules have strong PBT housings and measure 243 millimeters L x 60 millimeters W x 39.5 millimeters H, including the sockets for the power supply. They also meet ingress protection rating of IP 67 and are designed for use within the temperature range -10°C to +60°C. -- Connection of sensors and actuators to EtherNet/IP networks -- Integrated dual-port switch (10/100 Mbit/s) facilitates line topology For more information please visit www.belden.com
