Directional Control Valves – Fieldbus System

EX600 - Modular Platform

EX600 - Modular Platform

The EX600 serial interface offers a full suite of diagnostics and programmable parameters to meet the most stringent requirements. The EX600 offers excellent flexibility including digital input, digital output and analog input unit options. With the use of D-sub output blocks, a maximum of 9 remote D-sub manifolds can be attached to one EX600 communication module. This serial interface is compatible with series SV1000/2000/3000, VQC1000/2000/4000, S0700 and the new SY series valves. Available protocols include PROFIBUS-DP®, DeviceNet, CC-Link, Ethernet I/P and EtherCAT®.


EX260 - Output Only

EX260 - Output Only

EX260 series is a compact and cost effective fieldbus solution for output applicable to SMC's most popular directional control valves such as New SY, SV, VQC, and S0700 Series. It can control up to 32 solenoids in one manifold. Available protocols are EtherNet/IP™, Profinet®, EtherCAT®, PROFIBUS DP®, DeviceNet™ and CC-Link. EX260 series has standard dual port connectivity to eliminate the need of switches or branch connector, reducing wiring and component cost. IP67 enclosure rating ensures protection against dust and washdown environment.


EX250 - Input & Output

EX250 - Input & Output

EX250 is a serial interface unit controlling up to 32 solenoids.  This serial interface is compatible with series VQC1000/2000/4000 and SV1000/2000/3000 valves.  Available protocols include DeviceNet, CC-Link, AS-i, PROFIBUS-DP®, and CANopen.  Input modules can be added or removed at the point of use.


EX245 - Input & Output

EX245 - Input & Output

EX245 series is a PROFINET® communication module that is compatible with Fiber Optic Push Pull connectors specified by AIDA (Automation Initiative of German Manufacturers).  EX245 series provides modular connection digital input and output along with connection to 32 solenoid valves.  Each module is capable of 128 inputs and 64 outputs.  EX245 series is also compatible with PROFINET MRP® (Media Redundancy Protocol) and Provides Fast Start Up function to reduce donwtime and improving machine productivity.


EX500 - Distributed I/O

EX500 - Distributed I/O

EX500 a gateway unit to connect EtherNet/IP™, DeviceNet™, and Profibus DP® to SMC valves and digital inputs for sensors for distributed I/O system. Each gateway can control up to 8 valve manifolds and 8 input blocks, with maximum of 128 outputs and 128 inputs. EX500-GEN2 supports Device level Ring (DLR) and EtherNet/IP Quick Connect function. The gateway module has IP65 protection while valve modules and input blocks have IP67 protection ensuring protection against dust and washdown environment.


EX510 - Distributed I/O

EX510 - Distributed I/O

The EX510 series makes it possible to connect more valves and sensors than with conventional units.  With the introduction of the EX510 series, only a power supply cable to the GW unit is required, resulting in wire-savings.  Setting the address for the SI unit, output unit and input unit is no longer required, only the address for the GW unit needs to be set.  The volume ratio of the EX510 SI unit is 60% more compact than the EX120.
