Overview

The Modular, Fieldbus Independent I/O System

Optimization of Field Wiring Through the Utilization of a Modular IP 67 Fieldbus Solution.

From the Solution of a Problem to the LioN-Link Standard.

The LioN-Link decentralized I/O fieldbus system, which can be used to create line topologies of up to 100 meters in length, consists of bus coupler modules, which function as the interface to higher level fieldbuses such as Profibus, CANopen®, DeviceNet or ProfiNet, and protocol independent I/O modules.

Engineers therefore only have to make minimal changes to the hardware if their end customers use different transmission protocols for the connection of systems to their communications network. Only the BusHead requires an address setting, the fieldbus independent I/O modulesare commissioned without module addressing. Furthermore, a terminator is not required in either link line. Both features contribute to protection against manipulation. 

 

 

Main Features

Easy Wiring with Standard Connectors

Thanks to the utilization of standard components you are also assured of uninterrupted procurement and individual part inventory availability . All of the connectors and cables necessary for the LioN-Link system can be acquired anywhere in the world. Standard M12 connectors are used exclusively for fieldbus and link, standard M8/M12 connectors for the coupling of the sensors and actuators and standard M12/7/8" connectors for the power supply.

  • Color Coding  

 

 

System Overview

LioN-Link offers a complete range of connection components at field level.

These include components for the control of electric drives, the networking of intelligent sensors and actuators (e.g. proximity switches, motor starters and valves), straightforward retrofitting/conversion of machines, safety applications and decentralized power supplies.

Lion 3

 

 

The bus coupler and I/O modules, whose connections are designed for M12 or M8 connectors, are easy to install and commission thanks to the plug and play principle. They also offer comprehensive diagnostics options, meet the requirements for degree of protection IP 67 and have high vibration and shock resistance. Lumberg Automation™ fieldbus systems are thus ideal for use in extreme environments.

 

The LioN-Link I/ O fieldbus system not only facilitates secure data communication, but also contributes to the efficient operation of machines and systems, however the field wiring may look. With LioN-Link it is always possible to implement customized solutions. The system offers a high degree of flexibility, which is very useful in the planning phase and during subsequent retrofitting or conversion. It also helps to reduce power consumption.

 

     

Advantages

Universal I/O Functionality

No matter what the final design of your field wiring may be, a single I/O module is all you need to realize a whole range of different configurations. Each signal pin can be used as both an input and an output – without any additional configuration. 

 

This gives you maximum flexibility when it comes to planning, making changes during commissioning and when retrofitting at a later date. 

 Lion 7

 

Close to a Process

 

All LioN-Link modules are compliant with the IP 67 protection standard and are vibration and shock proof, which means that they can be used close to the process directly at field level. Thanks to an innovative technological development, the complete production process can be carried out without encapsulation, making LioN-Link modules ideal for use in the smallest handling robots due to their low weight.

 

 

Quick, Fast and Easy Installation 

  

Thanks to the staggered arrangement of the ports and the optimization of the distance between the ports, it is easy to screw on both moulded and field attachable connectors. The LioN-Link modules are designed for both rear and lateral installation and can even be attached directly to profile rails.

Effective Connectivity Solutions with the LioN-Link Power Module

 

The LioN-Link 0941 UNC 601/…M power module is used for decentralized power supply for I/O modules. It has four ports, two potential circuits and a 10 m lead with a conductor gauge of 5x1 mm2. This provides for bridging distances of up to 25 m without voltage loss as well as for configuring separate potential groups each with their own fuses.
