Leomatic P59 USB System5 Card

P59 USB:

USB-CANBus converter
8 IN + 8 OUT digital optional
DIN rail module

The Leomatic P59-USB module is a USB-CANBus converter that allows you to connect all SYSTEM5 family modules directly to a USB port on a PC or Operator Panel.

One side connects to the USB port of the PC while the other connects to the SYSTEM5 devices via the proprietary CANBus network using a simple twisted pair. In this way it is possible to deploy the SYSTEM5 modules even at great distances, keeping only the P59-USB module in the vicinity of the host PC. It allows you to take full advantage of the speed of the USB connection overcoming the known limits of distance.

Vene product also in the version with integrated digital I/O (8 inputs and 8 outputs) that can be managed directly by application software on PC. This special equipment makes it particularly suitable to solve simple automation problems using a desktop PC to realize the control logic.

The availability of digital I/Os can be further extended by connecting in a CANBus network the Leomatic P59.
