Products

IE1xxx | Digital input

The IE1xxx modules enable the connection of digital/binary sensors directly in the machine.

IE2xxx | Digital output

The IE2xxx modules enable the connection of digital/binary actuators directly in the machine.

IE23/24xx | Digital combi

The IE23/24xx modules combine digital inputs and outputs in one device.

IE3xxx | Analog input

The IE3xxx modules evaluate analog input signals from -10/0 to +10 V or 0/4 to 20 mA.

IE4xxx | Analog output

The IE4xxx modules generate analog output signals from -10/0 to +10 V or 0/4 to 20 mA.

IE5xxx | Position measurement

The IE5xxx modules enable the connection of SSI encoders or incremental encoders.

IE6xxx | Communication

The IE6xxx modules offer RS232 or RS4222/RS485 interfaces for external serial devices.

Up to 120 Extension Box modules can be connected via IP-Link.
Up to 120 Extension Box modules can be connected via IP-Link.

Extension Box modules

The Extension Box modules cover the entire range of I/O signals: digital inputs with different filters, digital outputs with 0.5 or 2 A output current, analog inputs and outputs with 16 bit resolution, thermocouples and RTD inputs, serial interfaces and encoder inputs.

As with the modules of the Compact Box, the digital inputs/outputs can be connected either via M8 or M12 screw connectors. Analog signal types are provided with the M12 version. The M8 connectors offer the channel-wise connection of sensors or actuators, while in the M12 version two signals are arranged on each M12 connector.

The extension modules are connected to the process level via the Fieldbus Coupler Box. Up to 120 extension modules can be connected via the IP-Link communication link at a distance of 15 m from box to box.
