With the VARAN VVO 323 valve interface, SIGMATEK introduces an interface module that with 32 short-circuit proof digital outputs, is used for controlling valves or magnetic coils from the SMC EX260 series. The module is designed for up to 50 mA of continuous current per channel.
The supply voltage is divided into two groups, which are each monitored for over and under voltage. The VVO 323 is space-saving and measures 124 x 88.5 x 76.3 mm (L x W x H) and has a robust housing in the IP67 protection class. The output module is also equipped with seven status LEDs, which for example, provide information on the supply voltage of the digital outputs or electronics. Whereby, the operating safety is significantly increased. The VVO 323 can, from the field to the management level, communicate via the hard real-time Ethernet bus VARAN. The bus system provides the machine manufacturer maximum openness for all installation, communication and control concepts.
In the Ex260 valve terminals, several valves are efficiently combined with a central energy supply and control. With a modular configuration, the valve terminal is extremely flexible and can be expanded at any time.
Especially in pneumatics, valve terminals are frequently used. The user profits from a high savings potential with for example, hose lines, wiring and installation times.
