LC5100 | CANopen “Low Cost” Bus Coupler

CANopenThe LC5100 “Low Cost” Bus Coupler is marked by a smaller design and a more economical connection method. Its functions correspond to those of the BK5110 CAN Bus Coupler in relation to operation with Bus Terminals and to the fieldbus properties. Up to 64 digital input/output terminals can be connected. The firmware can be updated via the configuration interface.

The LC5100 Bus Coupler is particularly suitable for use in small, low-price stations. The 24 V DC supply voltage feeds the peripheral devices via the power contacts, as well as the Bus Coupler electronics and the K-bus electronics. Electrical isolation from the I/O level is omitted from the Bus Coupler, but can if necessary be implemented by means of a power feed terminal.

The LC5100 Bus Coupler can be replaced by a Bus Coupler from the BK5110 series.

 

“Low Cost” Bus Coupler for digital signals

All the bit-oriented terminals can be connected to the “Low Cost” Bus Coupler. All the digital input and output terminals are supported with the exception of the KL15xx, KL25x2, KL2692 and KL27x1 terminals. All the system terminals, with and without diagnostics, can also be connected.
