Belden presents new LioN-M modules from its Lumberg Automation™ product range
Each of the 16 digital channels has a rated output current of up to 1.6A, with a maximum total current capacity of 9A. In the 0980 ESL 711 (16DI) module these channels can be used as inputs, and in the universal version 0980 ESL 700 (16DIO Universal) they can also be used as outputs in any combination. The easy diagnostic concept enables precise fault location for each individual port. Both modules facilitate line topologies and you can also continue to use existing communications structures such as cable ducts and energy chains without making any changes to their physical layout. This means that there is usually no need to install cost-intensive star cabling and additional switches. The universal module also offers the highest possible degree of flexibility, not only at the planning stage but also when making changes at the commissioning stage or during subsequent upgrades.
