IP67 Rated Fieldbus Modules
IP67 rated fieldbus modules are an important component of machine and system installations. They replace complex parallel wiring, saving space in the cabinet. Due to its mechanical properties, MVK Metal is designed for applications in harsh industrial environments.
Each channel can be individually monitored for possible failures such as overload, sensor short circuit or wire break. In the event of a failure, an LED will come on at the affected port. Additionally, a message is sent to the control.
The PROFINET fast start up (FSU) technique allows short start up times. The modules are ready for operation in less than 500 ms. This is an important feature for robot applications where tools are frequently changed.
The unit is dust-tight, tamper-proof and protected against temporary immersion which is defined as spending up to 30 minutes in water that's 1m deep.
PROFINET Isochronous Realtime (IRT) is used to transfer data packages with update times of 250 µs and a jitter accuracy of less than 1 µs. This is an ideal solution for applications with real time sensors and is suitable for the integration of motion drives.
The one-piece zinc die-cast housing has a protective finish to protect from welding applications. The modules is both weld spark resistant and IP67 rated. The fully potted housing makes the module vibration resistant (vibration 15 g, shock 60 g) and suitable for applications in harsh industrial environments.
If an input or output short circuits, only the affected channel is shut off. Adjacent inputs and outputs remain functional. The shut down channel is indicated by a red LED and a message is sent to the control.
