SOLID67: Protocol change with a flick of the wrist

SOLID67 is the new Murrelektronik line of compact I/O modules. They simplify installations in the field and are especially attractive for applications with IO-Link sensors and actuators. The modules provide eight IO-Link slots close to the process itself and can easily incorporate classic IOs into the system as well.

Thanks to the fully encapsulated metal housing, and impressive vibration and shock resistance (15 and 5 G); the modules are ready for use in rough industrial environments, even in a temperature ranging from -20 to +70 °C. This opens the way for numerous applications. The extensive diagnostic functions of the module, available via the control system or an integrated web server, make troubleshooting a simple matter.

Simplified inventory management

The SOLID67 modules are compatible with multiple protocols: they support ProfiNet and Ethernet/IP. It is only necessary to flip a switch directly on the module to select the applicable control concept. This reduces the number of variants, meaning that fewer modules need to be kept in stock.

Using all slots

The slots (pin 4) of the IO-Link master modules feature a multifunctional design that allows them to be used for IO-Link sensors and actuators or to be parameterized as classic inputs or outputs. Signals of all kinds can be read with just a single module.

Shorter installation times

The compact M12 power lines (L-coded) can withstand especially high current loads of up to 16 A. Daisy chains of multiple modules can be assembled to supply power where needed. This simplifies the installation work and shortens the cable paths. PI, the user organization for Profibus and ProfiNet, views the L-coded M12 as the future standard for power connectors.

Minimizing space requirements

With a unit width of only 30 millimeters, the thin IO-Link variants of SOLID67 are ideal for installations with limited available space. Modules can be installed extremely close to the process, and sensors and actuators can be connected with the shortest lines possible.
