All modules are designed for DIN rail mounting and guarantee a minimum footprint (101 x 120 x 17.5 mm or 101 x 120 x 22.5 mm).
The internal activity of each module is effectively displayed through special leds on the transparent front panel.
The modules are easily configurable through dip switches accessible from the front panel.
Wiring is facilitated by the adoption of sectionable terminal blocks with spring or screw coupling.
Depending on the needs of the specific application, the individual modules can be interconnected according to multiple architectures, even completely distributed.
Each device of the family hosts several independent communication ports:
- one port for high-speed parallel bus connection
- one or two serial ports (RS232/422/485/CANBus) for point-to-point or network connections to other SYSTEM 5 devices or modules
All SYSTEM 5 modules can be interfaced to control systems based on PC-104 Bus.
