The new ruggedized LioN-R EtherNet/IP modules in the LioN series guarantee maximum security for data communication. This is because the galvanic isolation between the individual sensors and actuators and the higher level bus system reliably protect the controllers from interference. In addition, short-circuit-proof outputs ensure maximum reliability – guaranteeing highly productive machines and systems.
The LioN-R modules, which meet the requirements of industrial protection class IP67, are fully enclosed in a stable zinc diecast housing, so you can use them even in the most rugged environmental conditions. Their robust design even enables them to easily withstand applications involving welding sparks, filings or aggressive coolants and lubricants.
Because LioN-R modules are also equipped with dual-port switches (10/100 Mbit/s), they can be used to implement both line and ring topologies. Thanks to DLR (device level ring protocol), the modules switch over immediately to an alternative ring segment if the connection goes down. This guarantees maximum network availability and hence continuous access to your applications. The easy diagnostics concept also allows faults to be located quickly, thanks to precise channel and bus diagnosis, thus saving you time and money.
Three versions of the LioN-R modules are available, each of which offers you 16 digital channels – either inputs, outputs, or a combination of both. The rated output current rating goes up to 1.6 A per channel, with a maximum total current capacity of 9 A. The optimum slot arrangement makes them easy to use, even with T distributors.
Both the 16 I/O slots and the two EtherNet/IP ports use vibration-proof M12 connection technology. To prevent confusion, the slots and ports are all color-coded. The IP address is set up using rotary switches. The process of configuring these LioN-R modules is also extremely convenient, as it can be carried out via the user interface of the controller.
