The Ethernet multi-protocol I / O modules by Turck Standard switching signals make bus-capable fast and effective. Thanks to their multi-protocol functionality, the Automatically operate FEN20 devices with digital inputs and outputs in each of the three Ethernet systems Profinet, Modbus TCP or Ethernet / IP. The devices used in each case recognize the devices by listening to the communication traffic during the startup phase.
The FEN20 devices There are two types: The small design FEN20-4DIP-4DXP is designed to be retrofitted in small control boxes, control panels or other existing enclosures, for example, to make control elements such as pushbuttons and lights quickly and effectively bus-capable. The large variant FEN20-16DXP is designed for the same application and offers up to 16 I / Os, which can be operated in the DXP version both as an input and as an output. An interesting detail is the distribution of the I / O signals to three independent and separate potential groups, which occur in certain applications - such as safety-related shutdown - and can be controlled centrally with the help of this module.
Both devices have an integrated web server, which can be used, for example, to display diagnostics in plain text. The website has been designed under "Responsive Design" aspects, so that even a smartphone can be used for easy diagnosis.
