BK9000, BK9050 | Ethernet TCP/IP Bus Couplers

The Bus Couplers recognise the terminals to which they are connected, and perform the assignment of the inputs and outputs to the words of the process image automatically. The BK9000 and BK9050 Bus Couplers support 10 Mbit/s and 100 Mbit/s Ethernet. Connection is through normal RJ 45 connectors. The IP address is set on the DIP switch (offset to a freely selectable start address). In networks with DHCP (a service for the allocation of the logical IP address to the physical node address [MAC-ID]) the Bus Coupler obtains its IP address from the DHCP server.

The BK9000 and BK9050 Bus Couplers support ADS TwinCAT system communication. TwinCAT I/O makes available configuration tools and Windows NT/2000/XP drivers for programs in any desired high-level language (DLLs) and for Visual Basic applications (ActiveX). Applications with OPC interfaces can access ADS (and therefore the BK9000 or BK9050) via an OPC server. In addition to ADS the Bus Coupler supports Open Modbus (Modbus TCP), a simple, widespread master/slave protocol based on TCP/IP.

Complex signal processing for analog I/Os, position measurement, …

The BK9000 and BK9050 Bus Couplers support the operation of all Bus Terminal types.

The analog and multi-functional Bus Terminals can be adapted to each specific application using the KS2000 configuration set. Depending on the type, the analog Bus Terminals' registers contain temperature ranges, gain values and linearisation characteristics. With the KS2000, the required parameters can be set on a PC. The Bus Terminals store settings permanently and in a fail-safe manner.

Optionally, the Bus Terminals can also be controlled by the control system. Via function blocks (FBs), the programmable logic controller (PLC) or the Industrial PC (IPC) handles configuration of the complete periphery during the start-up phase. If required, the controller can upload the decentrally created configuration data in order to centrally manage and store this data. Therefore, new adjustments are not necessary in the event of replacement of a Bus Terminal. The controller carries out the desired setting automatically after switching on.
