Data-Linc CIX System wireless network extender

Tuesday, 20 July, 2010 | Supplied by: Wired & Wireless Solutions International

The Data-Linc CIX System is designed to offer a cost-effective, automation I/O extender that provides direct PLC connection via communication ports to I/O points - with no PLC programming or proprietary software required.

When connected to a PLC, the CIX network is ready to operate after structuring the message as if reading or writing to an integer at that node. The CIX utilises Data-Linc’s SRM wireless technology. These industrial-grade wireless products offer simplified, low-labour start-up, maintenance and growth for I/O in both the 900 MHz (CIX6400) and the 2.4 GHz (CIX6500) ISM licence-free bands. Wired remote expansion is also available (CIX/EXP).

The CIX6x00/M receives data from the PLC via its serial port using Modbus RTU or DF1, or via its ethernet port using Modbus TCP/IP or EtherNet/IP. Each remote provides eight discrete inputs, eight discrete outputs, four analog inputs and four analog outputs. A full network with 16 CIX remotes provides a total of 384 I/O points. Discrete inputs are self-sensing dry contact. Discrete outputs are open collector common emitter (sinking), and the 12-bit resolution analogs can be configured for 0-20 mA, 4-20 mA and 0-10 VDC.
