CI512-ETHCAT – EtherCAT Bus Module

  • 8 DI, 8 DO and 8 DC 
  • fast counter
  • 32 cam switches
  • 2ms clamp-to-clamp time (two bus cycles)

Each cam consists of:

  • switch on and switch off action 
  • the 32 cams can be mapped to any digital output
  • an output can be mapped to one, several or none cams
  • PLC program can disable or overwrite the cam state
  • mapping is done during configuration

Each cam has the following input values. They can be re-configured on-the-fly, even via web server: 

  • Enable Input for the Cam
  • First on position (in 1/100 degree of a rotation)
  • Last on position (in 1/100 degree of a rotation) 
  • Dynamically adjustable compensation value related to speed
  • preferred configuration tool is ABB's engineering tool PS501 Control Builder Plus

System Technique

  • works with ABB's PLCopen motion control library PS552-MC 
  • ABB pre-wiring technology by terminal unit TU507-ETH or TU508-ETH 
  • two daisy-chain RJ45 connectors for comfortable Ehernet wiring
  • max 200 CI512-ETHCAT can be connected to a single CM579-ETHCAT master communication module
