"Never change a running system." At least, not with Hirschmann MCS! We’re committed to constantly improving our products so they will optimally meet our customers’ changing needs. Which is why the modular <link internal-link internal link in current>cSCALE controller with IP66/67 protection rating has just gained two powerful new components: the I/O 15 and I/0 17 cards. They let you configure your <link internal-link internal link in current>cSCALE even more flexibly.
Here’s a summary of what the two new additions bring to the table:
I/O 15: Existing high-side digital outputs (DOs) have now been supplemented with low-side digital outputs. This card’s 12 outputs are static, non-SIL and digital. Each of them is able to carry a current of up to a maximum of 1 A and features a feedback channel. The total capacity of all digital outputs amounts to 8 AaV. The low-side control logic is mainly intended for the undercarriages of mobile machines.
I/O 17: This card supplements the cSCALE’s digital outputs with four non-SIL analog outputs for 4...20 mA, in addition to providing two pairs of non-SIL analog outputs for 0...100 mA (each including a corresponding digital output for up to 1 A). All of the analog outputs have a resolution of 12 bits and deviations of < 1% under any environmental conditions. For precisely controlling Sauer-Danfoss valves, the analog outputs for 0...100 mA should be used opposite PWM digital outputs. The I/O 17 is mainly intended for use in construction machines and for <link internal-link internal link in current>retrofitting cranes.
