EX500, Decentralized Serial Wiring, GW System
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.
