DeviceNet Drive Interface Stations
Turck added the DeviceNet Drive Interface station to its line of DeviceNet I/O stations. The station is designed for use where adjustable frequency drives need to be interfaced onto a DeviceNet network, and it is capable of supporting up to four stand-alone adjustable frequency drives on the network. The station’s small size makes it appropriate for upgrading existing adjustable frequency drives in the automotive, pharmaceutical, chemical and material handling industries. The housing is constructed of glass-filled nylon that provides an IP 20 protection rating. The Drive Interface station connects to DeviceNet via a five-pin removable screw terminal connector. In addition, 12 relay outputs, four digital inputs and four analog outputs are available on removable screw terminal connectors.
