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.
The signal processing and the generation of system voltages for the I/O module occur in the EtherCAT bus coupler or small controller. 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 an ARM-based mini-IPC.
Modern industry-standard interfaces allow the connection to higher-level controllers as well as the connection of fieldbus devices. Our FIO Controller 113 can be individually extended with modules of the FIO I/O system. The programming is done with CODESYS V3.
In addition, you can simply integrate safety technology in the form of the Safety I/O module in order to meet the safety requirements of the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC.
You can get fast and simple access to the world of Kendrion Control Technology by using one of our CODESYS starter kits. For example, the CODESYS starter kit Motion offers a modular PLC with a controller module and CODESYS programming for stepper and BLDC motors.
The FIO CAM Control module is a separate electronic cam controller for cyclic recurring workflows. Whether self-sufficient or networked, it reduces processor load thanks to the highest dynamics and accuracy.
