Remote I/O System Supports Six Different Bus Protocols

Remote I/O System Supports Six Different Bus Protocols
Wieland Electric Inc.

The ricosFLEX remote modular I/O fieldbus system enables machine design engineers to combine up to 64 user modules on a single bus coupler to send I/O using PROFIBUS, PROFINET, CANopen, Modbus TCP, EtherCAT, or ETHERNET/IP protocols. Modules in the system include bus couplers for each of the six most common industrial protocols, analog input and output modules with resolutions of up to 16 bits, and digital I/O modules with two to eight channels per module. Reaction times of 20 µs are possible with the integrated 48-Mb/s backplane bus. The complete assembly mounts on a standard 35-mm DIN rail. For more information, go to
