Subnet controllers control, regulate and monitor the CAN bus data communication in up to four sub-networks, with each having up to 32 modules. Data is transferred to a central control unit via Ethernet.
Subnet controllers automatically detect and address connected modules (motor – module, IO – module). They detect and locate faults, breaks and short circuits, initiating a rest bus operation accordingly. Full operation automatically resumes once the causes have been eliminated.
All activities and functions are remote-controlled, or controlled using the module’s push buttons.
- 4 galvanically isolated CAN bus connections with screw terminals.
Data cable: Twisted pair 1 x 2 x 0.34 mm², 120 Ω, shielded. Length to the next module up to 100 m
- Ethernet connections with integrated switch.
Data cable: at least CAT 5. Length up to control unit 100 m
