The Axioline F family of I/O products from Phoenix Contact, designed for installationin control cabinets, is being expanded further: Along with new I/O components and function modules, the devices can now be operated on additional key networks. Devices for connecting to EtherCAT and Modbus/TCP (UDP) networks now supplement the bus couplers for Profinet and Sercos 3. An additional bus coupler also enables connection to the Profibus fieldbus system. In the function module product group, the series is being expanded to include a solution that combines three serial interface types (RS232, RS485, and RS422) in one terminal. This means reduced storage costs and flexible application. The new digital input modules were designed especially for mechanical engineering tasks. The AXL F DI 64/1 module has a channel density of 0.9 mm DIN rail lengths per channel and offers the right functionality for applications with high channel levels. The new AXL DI 16/1 HS module, with a 5 μs update time, offers fast signals a quick path to the controller, which enables the operation of applications with highmachine speeds.
