Bus module MBM-EC – data collector and gatewayWith the bus module MBM, all EUCHNER Modular devices can be connected to a fieldbus system. The bus module has a direct connection for one Modular device such that one MGB2 Modular or one MCM Modular can be connected directly to a bus module (direct plug). If mounted remotely, as an alternative several Modular devices can be connected using M12 cables (cable connected). The Modular connection technology makes it possible to operate up to six base units on one bus module MBM, for example. Different plug connector variants are available for connection to fieldbus systems. A switch is integrated into Ethernet-based systems such that series wiring both of the bus system and the power supply is possible.
EtherCAT integrationThe MBM supplies the protocol frame with the corresponding FSoE safety input and output bytes. All Multifunctional Gate Box 2 Modular (MGB2 Modular) safety door system functions are also available for EtherCAT.
The bus module MBM is available with one of the following EtherCAT connections:
M8, 4-pin for EtherCAT P
MLI connections (module plug connector)An MGB2 Modular or an MCM Modular can be connected directly to a bus module (direct plug). Alternatively, the modules can be connected using commercially available connecting cables M12, 5-pin (cable connect).
