Beckhoff Automation BK7000 ControlNet I/O Bus Coupler
The analog and multifunctional Bus Terminals can be adapted to each specific application using the KS2000 software configuration set. Depending on the type, the analog Bus Terminal registers contain temperature ranges, gain values and linearization characteristics. Using KS2000, the required parameters can be set on a PC. The Bus Terminal stores settings permanently and in a fail safe manner.
Optionally, Beckhoff Bus Terminal I/O can also be controlled by the control system. Via function blocks (FBs), the PLC or the Industrial PC (IPC) handles configuration of the complete periphery during the start up phase. If required, the controller can upload the decentrally-created configuration data in order to centrally manage and store this data. New adjustments are not necessary in the event of the replacement of an I/O Bus Terminal.
ControlNet has been an open fieldbus system since 1997. The transmission speed is 5 MBit/s and coax cables are used as the data transfer medium. The ControlNet protocol allows both cyclic and non cyclic data to be exchanged via the bus without cross-influence between them.
