New modular L-force I/O system 1000 for real-time control

Lenze's new L-force I/O system 1000 combines extensive functionality with a modular mechanical concept and compact design. As part of the L-force product portfolio, it is easy to integrate into control systems with other Lenze equipment. The I/O system is capable of handling real-time control signals with a minimal internal cycle time. Consequently it is suitable for motion buses such as CANopen, Profibus DP and EtherCAT. Installation is said to be particularly easy, with no tools required and the slim design is remarkably compact.

I/O systems are increasingly used to simplify the handling of control and sensor signal; they can save time at installation by reducing a mass of wiring down to a single fieldbus cable. The modular Lenze I/O system 1000 comprises blocks just 12.5mm wide that clip onto standard DIN rail. One station is made up with a bus coupler module plus up to 64 further modules of digital or analogue I/O and optional 24V/5V DC power supplies. A single 12.5mm digital input or output block can have up to eight connections in NPN or PNP formats.

The L-force I/O system 1000 has been designed to be easy to use: modules snap into place and sprung terminals enable cables to be connected without clamping screws. Each wire connection has a bright LED indicator that makes commissioning and diagnostics easier, particularly inside poorly lit panels. Commissioning and diagnostics are aided further by the ability to label each connection on the front of the module, together with wiring diagrams on the side and base. Shield connections are built in to speed installation and, for service and maintenance, the electronics can be unplugged without disturbing the wiring.

Lenze's L-force I/O system 1000 suits centralised PC control of machinery with fast transmission rates and easy handling. Follow the link for more information about the Lenze L-force I/O system 1000.
