SOLID67: Protocol change with a flick of the wrist

Protocol change with a flick of the wrist SOLID67 is the new Murrelektronik line of compact I/O modules. They simplify installations in the field and are especially attractive for applications with IO-Link sensors and actuators. The modules provide eight IO-Link slots close to the process itself and can easily incorporate classic IOs into the system as well.

Thanks to the fully encapsulated metal housing, and impressive vibration and shock resistance (15 and 5 G); the modules are ready for use in rough industrial environments, even in a temperature ranging from -20 to +70 °C. This opens the way for numerous applications. The extensive diagnostic functions of the module, available via the control system or an integrated web server, make troubleshooting a simple matter.

  • Simplified inventory management
    Our SOLID67 fieldbus modules have multiple protocols. This means they support PROFINET and Ethernet/IP in one module. This is an excellent solution and allows our customers to enjoy concrete advantages: to change from one protocol to another, all they have to do is simply turn a rotary switch on the device. And because fewer modules have to be kept in stock, it also simplifies inventory. This will also reduce costs.”

  • Using all slots
    The slots (pin 4) of the IO-Link master modules feature a multifunctional design that allows them to be used for IO-Link sensors and actuators or to be parameterized as classic inputs or outputs. Signals of all kinds can be read with just a single module.
  • Shorter installation times
    The compact M12 power lines (L-coded) can withstand especially high current loads of up to 16 A. Daisy chains of multiple modules can be assembled to supply power where needed. This simplifies the installation work and shortens the cable paths. PI, the user organization for Profibus and ProfiNet, views the L-coded M12 as the future standard for power connectors.
  • Minimizing space requirements
    With a unit width of only 30 millimeters, the thin IO-Link variants of SOLID67 are ideal for installations with limited available space. Modules can be installed extremely close to the process, and sensors and actuators can be connected with the shortest lines possible.
