THE advantages of Phoenix Contact's Interbus Inline flexible automation system can now be used in CANopen-based systems. For these systems, the IL CAN BK CANopen bus coupler takes care of the necessary data transfer between the advanced modular structure of the Inline decentralised application system and the CANopen network.
Additionally, diagnostics and status displays enable exact module fault localisation and on-site determination of the cause. The bus coupler supports I/O profile, emergency object and nodeguarding and offers easy connection with a twin Combicon plug connection.
As it's a CANopen participant, the bus coupler can operate at any position in a CAN network. It uses a diagnostics element to send detailed failure cause and location data to the master, where they are evaluated by appropriate software.
Modules in the Interbus Loop2 range to protection category IP67 supplement the automation system for creating solutions outside the control box. Phoenix Contact 02 9524 4455.
