SmartRail Bases, remote I/O for HMI Controllers

$313.00$808.00

SmartRail I/O expands the input / output capacity of OCS All-in-One controllers. SmartRail uses fieldbus technology and can be installed locally or hundreds of meters away. Highly expandable and scalable with several communication base options, SmartRail modular I/O allows for granular digital and analog input / output configurations to suit any specification without wasted space or hardware cost. Multiple SmartRail I/O Bases can be used – limited only by the performance requirements of the application. SmartRail Ethernet I/O is compatible with any OCS controller with built-in Ethernet.

  • local expansion I/O or remote I/O up to 500 meters away
  • expand to 8 modules per base and 16 bases per network
  • screw-type terminals, standard spring-clamp style optional
  • flexible fieldbus selection
    • CsCAN
    • Ethernet
    • CANopen
    • Profibus

Description

SmartRail I/O is a modular input / output system for OCS offering a choice of Fieldbus networks (CsCAN, Ethernet, CANopen, and Profibus). It is a flexible input / output system that can be applied as a local expansion I/O or remote I/O distributed over hundreds of meters. SmartRail is a compact I/O system – supporting 128 input / output points in a footprint of onlyc 3.5H x 8.75W (inches).

Easy Configuration with SmartRail from Horner Automation

SmartRail gives you the benefit of Fieldbus I/O with much less complex configuration. SmartRail I/O is easily configured using Cscape programming software. Just select your I/O base – and then start adding I/O modules. Cscape even calculates input / output power usage for you automatically – so you’ll never overload an I/O base.
