industrial communication previous page 03 Valter Clerico, Electrical and Automation Department Manager from Anselmo, and Weidmüller’s Francesco Papa are pleased with their successful partnership supply for inputs and outputs with two 10-A current paths capable of handling heavy loads – this reduces the number of power-feed modules needed and at the same time saves space as well as planning and maintenance effort. Secondly, “u-remote” has an internal supply path capable of handling heavy loads, which allows 64 modules to be operated with just one power supply on the coupler. The “u-remote” I/O system has freely selectable sensor connection options (2-, 3-, 4-conductor technology). It can be operated in a temperature range from -20 to +60 °C. The high-speed system bus provides impressive electronic performance and works with as many as 256 DI/DOs in 20 µs. LEDs on the module and each channel, directly positioned on the conductor connection, are extremely helpful for reading statuses and diagnoses. Protection again mismatched connections thanks to 64+4 coding, a wide range of marking options, a professional software tool for planning and checking the I/O station, and much more enhance the perfectly attuned system. “u-remote” HD modules Following the successful launch of “u-remote” at the end of 2013, Weidmüller is once again raising the bar in modern I/O technology with new HD modules. HD stands for high density and the abbreviation is not used without good reason: four lines with wire cross-sections of 0.14 to 0.32 mm 2 can be connected to every single HD connector, producing 32 connection points on what is already the narrowest module width on the market – just 11.5 mm. This gives the “u-remote” a connection density never achieved before and makes possible a much smaller design than that used in all alternative systems with a comparable range of functions. Connection density, of course, goes hand in hand with system structure flexibility: there is enough room on these new HD modules for all the wiring for eight individually pluggable sensors or actuators. On all other systems currently available, these would have to be distributed over several modules. And this is the very area in which Weidmüller is developing the superior handling concept of “uremote”. The resulting plug & play solution for the HD connectors is very simple but embodies very sophisticated technology and allows for quick and reliable installation in tight spaces in local applications. Working with pre-assembled lines in connectors whose maximum dimensions match those of a standard M8 connector results in fewer wiring mistakes despite the considerably faster assembly times. Entire machine modules can be wired much faster and taken into productive use far more easily. So it’s obvious that maintenance and tooling work are also much more straightforward. photographs: ornaments fotolia www.weidmueller.com About Company name: Weidmüller Interface GmbH & Co.
