Simplify valve manifold control using Distributed Modular I/O

Florence, KY: Typical valve manifold installations that require terminating 25 wires and troubleshooting multiple connections can be time consuming and costly. By utilizing an industrial network and a Balluff Distributed Modular I/O valve manifold connector, cost and time of installation and repair can be dramatically reduced by changing 25 conductor terminations into a simple M12 4wire connection.

Balluff’s new valve control solution provides multiple advantages: 25-pin D-sub manifolds are lower cost than their networked counterparts, they are plug-and-play with distributed modular I/O, and they are typically standard off the shelf components so they are easy to specify, source, and repair.

Balluff valve manifold connectors are compatible with most major valve brands including: MAC, SMC, Festo, Parker, Bosch Rexroth, Norgren and Numatics. Balluff valve control solutions are compatible with EtherNet/IP, PROFINET, DeviceNet, Profibus, and CC-Link networks. By utilizing the vendor neutral communication standard, IO-Link (www.io-link.com), virtually any combination of networks and valve brands can be specified by the customer regardless of what is offered from the valve manufacturer alone.

Features
• Up to 1.1A at 24V total can be active at once
• Up to 24 output positions can be controlled per manifold
• Up to 4 manifolds or slave devices can be controlled per master device
• Any combination of manifolds or other IO-Link devices can be hooked to each master device
• Other Balluff IO-Link Components Available:
-Discrete I/O hubs
-Analog channels
-Read/Write RFID Heads
-Smart Sensors

Four manifolds can be controlled on one EtherNet/IP master and the manifolds can be distributed up to 20 meters from the master device.
