Features

Slave I/O Control Modules

Using standard TCP/IP - protocols, MacroNode Ethernet modules can provide reliable, high speed connectivity at up to 2msec output update timing. Units are ordered as Modbus/TCP or Ethernet/IP versions and utilize standard CAT 5 network cables. All Ethernet models contain web browser user interface for debug, manual control and data collection. Additional network interface includes DeviceNet.

Configure with 1-4 I/O cards

cLogic™ Real-Time Control Engine

Modularize and distribute time critical tasks where they belong. MKS cLogic allows you to overcome TCP/IP network bandwidth concerns by distributing logic to the I/O modules. You designate your logic using standard C code, and then activate the MacroNode on-board C-compiler. cLogic is only available on Ethernet models. Examples of control logic include:

  • Distributed sequences
  • PID control
  • Signal filtering and analysis
  • Frequency, pulse width, count

Add real-time control to each module

Web Browser User Interface

Each unit takes advantage of built-in web servers to provide a graphical user interface for setup and diagnostics. In addition to module status, each I/O point can be manually set and read using a standard web browser. Data can also be graphed in real time for complete diagnostics.

Manual control and real-time diagnostics

Mounting and Connection

Each MacroNode package is sized to accommodate 1 - 4 I/O cards. Each unit is built to your requirements. MacroNode snaps on to standard 35 mm DIN rail, and contains D-Sub 37 I/O connectors on the top and bottom for high density connectivity. Each connector contains additional power and common points for easy system signal distribution. The front panel contains all configuration switches and setup LED’s.

Each unit is 4”H x 4”D x 1.5”W plus 0.7 inches per I/O slot.
