I/O system with 3 Sercos-compatible modules
By Alison Dunn
Wago Corporation’s Speedway 767 I/O-System features three Sercos-Compatible modules with hardware delay times of less than 10ms. The 767-3806 8DI, 767-4808 8DO (0.1A) and 767-5401 DIO (0.2A) modules are engineered for the “hard, real-time” requirements of motion control-based automation. Companions to Wago’s Speedway Sercos Coupler, the modules support high-speed packaging sensors and actuators, e.g, solenoids/valves (output modules) and proximity switches (input modules).
The machine-mount system processes 1000 instructions within 150. Using a fieldbus-independent platform, Speedway Ethernet controllers (IEC 61131-3 programmable) and couplers, as well as DI, DO and DIO modules support harsh-environment applications. SPEEDWAY accommodates up to 64 modules per node with a maximum 1,650 foot node extension.
