TB20 starter kit, ModbusTCP
Modules are delivered as complete assembled units (i.e., as a single assembly) and can be installed immediately.
The 24 V power supply connector, the final bus cover, and the base module are already included in the bus coupler’s delivery.
TB20 ToolBox makes it easy to methodically design TB20 systems. Integrated terminal mapping, system width calculations, and current-carrying capacity monitoring all make it possible to quickly design systems without making any mistakes.
The EtherCAT bus coupler makes it possible to access data from peripheral modules using the EtherCAT protocol.
It can accommodate up to 64 modules of any kind connected in series with the bus coupler.
It detects peripheral modules that are plugged in and can assign the corresponding I/O data to an EtherCAT mapping automatically.
The EtherCAT bus coupler supports the Modular Device Profile.
A large I/O image table size of 1,024 bytes makes it possible toimplement comprehensive and complex systems.
TB20 ToolBox can be used to easily configure the system and the various module parameters and transfer the corresponding settings to the coupler.
Alternatively, the configuration can also be edited using the CoE object dictionary.
Finally, running TB20 systems can be diagnosed in real-time and set up for testing purposes if an EtherCAT master is not yet connected (simulation / I/O check).
A functioning TB20 configuration will always require a bus coupler and at least one peripheral module.
The Modbus/TCP bus coupler makes it possible to access data from peripheral modules using the Modbus/TCP protocol, but can accommodate up to 64 modules of any kind connected in series with the bus coupler.
The Modbus/TCP bus coupler features an integrated two-port switch that allows for star and line topology configurations.
A large I/O image table size of 2 kbytes makes it possible to implement comprehensive and complex systems.
The control and status registers can be used to configure and monitor the coupler’s behavior with Modbus/TCP.
TB20 ToolBox can be used to easily configure the system structure and the various module parameters, and transfer the corresponding settings to the coupler.
A functioning TB20 configuration will always require a bus coupler and at least one peripheral module. The bus coupler supports hot-swapping for replacing modules during operation.
- Modules can be replaced during operation (hot-swapping)
- 24 V DC power supply
- Integrated power supply unit for powering peripheral modules (2.5 A)
- Supplies the system’s I/O voltage (24 VDC)
- USB device port for online diagnostics, configuring parameters, setup, and firmware updates with “TB20 ToolBox”
- TB20 ToolBox simulation for commissioning the I/O system without a higher-level controller in order to test the functionality (I/O check)
- Concealed “factory reset” switch for restoring the module to its factory settings• Connection watchdog for connection monitoring
- Simultaneous access to up to 10 stations (TCP connections)
- Integrated two-port switch
- Up to 64 peripheral modules
- 2 x RJ45 connections
- 2048 bytes of input, 2048 bytes of output data
- 126 bytes of parameter data per module
- The coupler’s behavior can be configured using control registers
- The coupler’s status can be read out using status registers
- 7 LEDs, one of them bi-color
