The expansion of B-Design fieldbus components includes support for Sercos III and Ethernet/IP for valve manifold systems Series HF03-LG, HF04, and CD01/02-PI. The valves include body sizes with 10, 15, 18 and 26 mm widths. All electric pneumatic, supply and exhaust connections are on one plane for clean installation. Discrete output modules control up to 2 A current draw per point, and modular expansion of discrete and solenoid outputs is possible.
The Sercos III version features up to 32 outputs per valve manifold and up to four valve manifolds can be controlled from one bus module.
The EtherNet/IP version features up to 48 inputs per valve manifold in addition to solenoid and discrete outputs, and up to four valve manifolds can be controlled by one bus module. The standard module works with EtherNet/IP, Modbus TCP and TCP/IP protocols.
