The modular basis – Connectivity in all directions

One module – Many options!

Thanks to the great modularity and the defined interfaces, different learning scenarios can be designed on one module by using additional components.

  • Get to know one module and connect to a control with 4 mm lines.
  • Connect this module to a control with open wiring and terminal block.
  • Connect this module to a control with a plug connector and start programming immediately.
  • Connect this module to a bus coupler with a plug connector and start with network technology immediately.

No matter where you start, the path is always right.

Well connected with the bus node CTEU for valve terminals and the IO-Link® DA Interface

The fieldbus node supports fieldbus-capable modules. The bus node module is therefore a low-cost means of exploring the extensive world of fieldbus protocols, including CANopen, PROFIBUS and DeviceNet®. This communication interface is based on the Festo "I-Port" as a universal M12 connection. It can be equipped with the new bus modules CTEU or configured with IO-Link®.

The interface box allows safe wiring using 4 mm safety plugs

The wired sensors and actuators in the module are connected to a defined interface. These are connected via the interface box to 4 mm safety socket contacts. This applies both to digital and analog signals and the power supply.

Fast commissioning thanks to a uniform interface

A uniform interface allows all modules and components to be connected to the modular system. The defined interface (I/O interface) helps ensure fast system commissioning.

The I/O terminal – The central unit of the MPS® SysLink concept

It is used to wire eight digital inputs and eight digital outputs which are connected to a socket contact. Contact is established via spring-loaded terminals. LEDs are included on the input and output terminals which make it easy to monitor the switching status and enable systematic troubleshooting. The interface can be mounted on an H-rail.
