IPxxxx-, IL230x-B800 | Fieldbus Box modules for RS485

In an RS485 system, the bus consists of a master station and of a number of slave stations. The communication is controlled entirely by the master. The master requests the data from the slaves cyclically (polling). When data is exchanged with the bus nodes, the entire process image is always transmitted. In other words, the master sends all of the output data to the Fieldbus Box, after which it receives all of the input data in an answer telegram.

At 38.4 kbaud, 20 ms are needed to exchange 30 bytes of process data. The data is transmitted in a fixed format binary string secured by a checksum.

 

KS8000

The KS8000 communication library for Windows 2000/XP is available for communication with the Fieldbus Box modules. The library offers functions with which it is possible to establish a simple connection from PC applications via the serial PC interface to the Fieldbus Box modules. The OCX interface can be utilised within any programming language that works with the specifications of the Component Object Model (COM) from Microsoft (e.g. Visual Basic, Visual C, Delphi, Java, etc.). The KS8000 library also has a DLL interface for any other C/C++ programs. KS8000 LV also makes an interface available for the graphical programming system LabVIEW from National Instruments.

 

Multiplexer function

As an additional operating mode, autonomous master/slave communication can be established between two serial Fieldbus Box modules. The input data from one device are copied directly to the outputs of the other, without the aid of an additional master – and vice versa. This kind of communication does not require any extensive configuration – it is only necessary for the node addresses to be appropriately selected.

 

Configuration

The node address is set in the range from 1 to 69 using two decimally coded rotary switches. The transmission rate is set to 38,400 baud by default. Like the other system parameters, it can be altered if required using the KS2000 software tool through the serial configuration interface of the Fieldbus Box.

 

Diagnostics

A status byte is transmitted with each telegram, providing information about the node and communication states. The status of the network connection, the device status, the status of the inputs and outputs and of the power supply are displayed by LEDs.

 

Compact Box

Compact Box modules with serial interfaces are available for all relevant industrial signals. In addition to digital and analog input and output modules including thermo­couple and RTD inputs, there are also incremental encoder interfaces available for displacement and angle measurement in addition to serial interfaces to solve a large number of communication tasks.

 

Coupler Box

The serial Coupler Box gathers the I/O data from the Extension Box modules over the interference-free IP-Link fibre optic cable. It detects the connected modules and automatically allocates the input and output data to the process image. Both data consistency and a clear separation of input and output data are ensured. The Coupler Box has four digital inputs and four digital outputs. Other kinds of signals are available in the Extension Box.

Compact Box

The Compact Box modules for RS485 offer a wide range of I/O functionality. All relevant industrial signals are supported. The digital inputs and outputs can be connected either with snap type 8 mm diameter plugs, screw type M8 connectors, or screw type M12 connectors. For analog signals the M12 version is used.
