1/9 Presentation (continued) Modicon M580 automation platform Modicon X80 I/O platform The Modicon X80 I/O platform serves as the common base for automation platforms by simply adding a dedicated processor such as the M580 or M340. It may also: b Form part of a Quantum Ethernet I/O architecture as an Ethernet RIO (EIO) drop with a CRA bus terminal module b Form an Ethernet Modbus/TCP DIO drop with a PRA module The Modicon X80 I/O platform is available in single-rack or multi-rack configuration. This platform may also accept automation platform-dedicated modules (communication, application, etc.). One Modicon X80 drop may support two racks separated by a distance of up to 30 meters/ 98.425 feet . This platform, common to several automation platforms, can reduce maintenance and training costs as it comprises: b A single range of spare parts in stock b Training common to several PLCs Based on the latest I/O technology, the Modicon X80 I/O platform offers: b High-quality ruggedness and compactness b Compliance with international certifications (ATEX, IEC, etc.) b A wide selection of modules: Discrete or analog I/O, expert modules, communication modules, etc Note: For further information, please consult the "Modicon X80 I/O platform" catalog available on our website www.schneider-electric.com. Dedicated modules HART integrated analog I/O modules The Highway Addressable Remote Transducer (HART) protocol is the global standard for sending and receiving digital information across analog wires between smart devices and a control or monitoring system. The standard is controlled by the HART Communications Foundation. HART integrated analog I/O modules can be added on the backplane of the Modicon M580 processor. These HART modules offer 8 channels per input module and 4 channels per output module. HART integrated analog I/O modules allow the integration of HART- enabled instruments to the network architecture. Each M580 main rack can support up to 6 HART I/O modules and each X80 RIO drop can support up to 7 HART I/O modules. HART analog I/O modules are only supported by Ethernet + X-bus backplanes (main rack or RIO drop). Note: For further information, please consult the "Modicon X80 I/O platform" catalog available on our website www.schneider-electric.com. Scaime partner weighing module The Scaime integrated partner weighing module is a solution for integrated and distributed weighing systems. The weighing module is only supported by Ethernet + X-bus backplanes (main rack or RIO drop). This Scaime Ethernet system weighing transmitter offers 1 weighing channel and can take up to 100 measurements per second in order to provide a better weighing resolution. Weighing data is easily transmitted to the PLC via the Ethernet backbone.
