Remote I/O

Machine control applications

Remote I/O

Industrial control applications typically use a PLC system to manage the process; using I/O to provide an interface to switches, relays and sensors attached to the machine.

Control Techniques continues to lead the way with our scalable drive-based controller platform that ranges from the ultra-convenient onboard PLC to the powerful MCi machine/motion controller. To supplement this controller platform and dramatically extend the range of applications that can benefit from this cost- and performance-optimized solution, we now offer an extensive range of remote I/O.

 
Benefits of Control Techniques RTMoE remote I/O: 
  • Allows the number of I/O points to be dramatically expanded over those available on the drive
  • Brings greater diversity to the type of I/O available
  • Remote I/O is directly supported by any Ethernet based Unidrive, through the optional SI-Ethernet module or the Ethernet port on board of the MCi210 module
  • The MCi210 module provides the most versatile and powerful solution

For applications where an industrial PC is required, Control Techniques can provide EtherCAT Remote I/O.

  • RTMoE / Modbus TCP Remote I/O

    In this configuration, add-on RTMoE / Modbus TCP Remote I/O modules connect directly via the on-board Ethernet port of the Unidrive M7XX series drives, through the optional SI-Ethernet module or via the on-board Ethernet port of the MCi210 Machine Control option modules.

    A typical configuration (as shown below) would include MCi2XX Machine Control option modules, Machine Control Studio software and the MCh040/MCh070 HMI Panels. All sensor inputs can be monitored, and outputs controlled, including LEDs, pushbuttons, temperature controls, machine status indicators and fluid flow sensors.

  • EtherCAT Remote I/O

    In this configuration, add-on EtherCAT Remote I/O modules connect via the on-board EtherCAT port of the MCe or MCz controllers, or through any EtherCAT port on any PLC or controller.

    A typical scalable configuration (as shown below) would feature the EtherCAT Remote I/O module, used in conjunction with MCe or MCz controllers, MCi2XX Machine Control option modules, Machine Control Studio software and the MCh040/MCh070 HMI Panels. All sensor inputs can be monitored, and outputs controlled, including LEDs, pushbuttons, temperature controls, machine status indicators and fluid flow sensors.
