Ethernet Powerlink Compatible Products
SMC has several products compatible to Ethernet POWERLINK. POWERLINK is a software protocol based on standard Ethernet that provides deterministic and real-real time response time. The POWERLINK protocol is standardized in IEC61158-13 and IEC61784-2.
EX260, SI Unit
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.
EX600 SI Unit
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®, PROFINET, POWELINK and CC-Link IE Field™
MPC, Multi Position Cylinder, Industrial EtherNet
The MPC is SMC's low cost Ethernet positioning cylinder. The MPC series offers a cylinder, solenoid valve, linear positioner, and controller in one package. With its integral position control, the MPC needs only power and Ethernet input signal. The target position is kept by opening and closing solenoid valves controlling pressure on the cylinder. The MPC has an output signal to give position feedback to a customer's controller. Standard ball bushings protect against side load..
