LioN-Link Series (Fieldbus-Systems Local)

By Belden Australia Pty Ltd

LioN-Link is of interest in cases where the machines or plants have distributed I/O
concentrations in limited space conditions. LioN-Link consists of bus couplers and I /O
modules. The bus couplers are used for linking the I /O modules to the Fieldbuses. Starting from the bus coupler, the I /O modules divide up decentrally in the field via two strands. In total up to 15 users can be connected to each strand. The overall extension of a strand can extend to 100 m.

Key features include:

  • Bus-independent I/O modules ensure a high degree of flexibility and reduce storage requirements
  • Space-saving, light-weight modules ensure a wide area of applications
  • Simplified planning due to universal I /O modules
  • Economical solution – up to 480 I/Os at a single bus coupler
  • Quick availability with the use of standardized wiring components
  • Easy and safe installation thanks to color-coded sockets
  • High degree of reliability as there are no line terminators
  • Easy start-up and extension of the plant, because the modules will be operating without manual addressing
