e2c Series (Fieldbus-Systems Central)

By Belden Australia Pty Ltd

The modular IP67 distribution system e2c (Easy To Connect) is suitable for decentralized applications in rough industrial environments. The system supports the Profibus DP, DeviceNet and Interbus Fieldbuses and is easy to install and configure. The Fieldbus is determined only by the bus head and the plug box – all other components are bus-independent. With e2c, the user determines which I/O modules are combined with which Fieldbus.

Key features include:

  • Bus-independent, compact and high IP rating
  • Peripherals can be checked without a bus connection
  • Up to 128 signals in the smallest space
  • Large bandwidth of I/O modules
  • Interface module for linkage to valve terminals and passive distributors
  • Plug & Play startup
  • Secure contacting due to backplane concept
  • Cost-saving due to integration of passive components from the Lumberg product family

Technical data:

  • Backplane: for 4, 6 or 8 I /O modules
  • Bus heads: Profibus, Interbus, DeviceNet
  • I /O modules:
    – Digital input (p- or n switched, counter)
    – Digital output (0.5–2 A), also with ext. supply, electrically insulated
    – Multi-pole interface (with dig. input and output channels) for ASB(M) distributor or valve terminals
    – Analog input (+/-10 V, +/-20 mA, 4-20 mA)
