Collect and Forward Signals Remotely Outside of The Cabinet

Weidmuller 3/26/2018
Progressive decentralisation means that more and more automation systems are being brought out from the control cabinet into the field. Multi-protocol-modules serving EtherCAT, PROFINET or EtherNet/IP can significantly reduce the number of needed variants in stock.

U-remote IP67 provides maximum power in the system. The M12 L-coded connectors allow a feed of 16 A. This reduces the number of required power supplies and lowers cabling costs. The maximum possible cable cross-section of 2.5 mm² allows longer distances in the network due to a lower voltage drop. In addition, the new member of the u-remote family convinces with its low weight and currently, the most compact design on the market.
Your special advantages

• Multiprotocol for up to 3 fieldbuses
• 16 A supply current to reduce the wiring effort
• Compact design for more space on the machine
• Cable cross sections of up to 2.5 mm² for smaller voltage drops in larger networks

Maximum power in the system
The L-coded plug makes a 16 A power supply possible. It allows a greater number of consumers which can be wired in a line and thus reduces the level of cabling.

Compact designs
The 30 mm wide design is particularly suited to confined spaces. Even the short length of the modules and their low weight are to be highlighted as they offer advantages for many applications.

One module for three protocols
Whether EtherCAT, PROFINET or Ethernet/IP: thanks to the multi-protocol module of u-remote, you only need one remote I/O module on stock.
