Direct fieldbus connection on the valve
Fieldbus Connection
XV connection offers the possibility of integrating pneumatic valves directly into the system. Up to 24 digital outputs – for up to 24 valves – are located in a compact DSUB housing. Applicable for all pneumatic valves, the connections concept makes it possible to add valve manifolds to an already networked environmen. The connection is made directly using a 25-pin connector that provides openness. The use bus controllers allows for freely selectable fieldbuses (e.g. CANopen, DeviceNet, Profi Bus, ETHERNET Powerlink), which additionally multiplies the possible fields of application.
