The terminal is designed for use within an Inline station.
This terminal is a fast input module used to connect load cells, force transducers, mass pressure transducers, and similar devices based on strain gauges.
The strain gauges can be connected using 6 or 4-conductor technology.
The strain gauge output signals are measured in each bus cycle and updated in the process data (bus-synchronous process data update).
The terminal is suitable for control applications with increased speed requirements.
There are two options for data exchange:
- Via process data (both inputs in one bus cycle)
- via PCP Compact (both inputs in the “Analog Values” PCP object)The measured values are represented by standardized 16-bit values.
The measured values are represented by standardized 16-bit values.
