FIO is a system of I/O modules to link the process signals within an EtherCAT network. It consists of the bus coupler and various I/O modules.
In the EtherCAT bus coupler or small controller, the signal processing and the generation of system voltages occur for the I/O module. Between the I/O modules, the EtherCAT protocol is used.
At the end of the modular device the connection of go-and-return line will be closed automatically or transmitted with the help of an extender to the next EtherCAT participants. The small control FIO Controller 113 is a mini-IPC based on ARM.
Modern industry-standard interfaces allow the connection to higher-level controllers as well as the connection of fieldbus devices. The FIO Controller 113 can be individually extended with modules of the FIO I/O system, the programming is done with CODESYS V3.
The modular PLC is expandable with a Safety PLCand Safety I/O modules to meet the requirements of the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC.
