Introducing B&R I/O Module – X20BC00G3
- Auto-configuration of I/O modules
- I/O configuration and firmware update via the fieldbus (FoE)
- Full support of the modular slice concept via CoE (CANopen over EtherCAT)
- Configurable I/O cycle (0.2 to 4 ms)
- Synchronization between the fieldbus and X2X Link
X20BC80G3 module type with two additional output ports (X20HB28G0)
EtherCAT is an Ethernet-based fieldbus developed by Beckhoff. The protocol is suitable for hard and soft real-time requirements in automation technology. In addition to a ring structure, which becomes logically necessary because of the summation frame telegram used, the EtherCAT technology also physically supports topologies such as line, tree, star (limited) and combinations of these topologies. B&R’s X20BC80G3 (expandable bus controller module) and X20HB88G0 (stand alone junction base module) are available for implementing these topologies.
EtherCAT slave devices take the data designated for them from a telegram as it is passing through the device. Input data is also inserted in the telegram as it is passing through. The X20BC00G3 bus controller allows X2X Link I/O modules to be coupled to EtherCAT and can be operated on any EtherCAT master system. A transition between IP20 and IP67 protection outside of the control cabinet is possible by aligning X20, X67 or XV modules one after the other as needed at distances up to 100 m.
We are excited to introduce Shota Nemoto at RSI. Shota is joining us as a Software Engineer and will help us develop innovative and exciting products.
Chicago's official Christmas tree has arrived for the holidays. The tree is a 45-foot-tall blue spruce. The Christmas tree lighting ceremony is held every year in November...
RSI has integrated Alicat’s EtherCAT compatible mass flow controller with RMP EtherCAT motion controller. Alicat instruments rapidly and precisely monitor and control critical process parameters.
RSI has integrated Mitsubishi MR-J5 drive with RMP EtherCAT motion controller. This is a very powerful drive with many advanced features.
RMP Release Notes for version 10.1.0
The machine is a rotary draw tube bender. This particular machine bends aluminum tubing with ODs from 3/8” to 5/8”. For the most part the tubing is being used on coolant systems in Trucks.
Paper mail packaging. Paper coming out of a roller goes through die cutter. There is a page feeder, page trap. This is for adding mails to an envelope.
RSI has 3D printed and built a demo kit using Fastech ServoII mini products. Our evaluation program allows a user to test out the servo demo kits using our RMP EtherCAT motion controller.
The machine emulates a large belt sander with an X-Y table under it that polishes stainless steel vents and grills. It’s been great working with Kennard through the entire development process. The case study includes UI screens and Q&A.
customers have automated with help of our products and team.
