The ECO-MCC module has 24 programmable digital inputs/outputs. ECO-NUM communicates with the ECO-MCC by CAN and RF network connection. Each ECO-NUM has a unique address on 4 bytes UID (eg 5B9F). It is inscribed on the case and is useful for its configuration with the software. I/O are isolated by opto-couplers, which requires placing a separate power supply.
The CAN network comprises a galvanic isolation and a jumper can be configured to place a resistor on the ends of the bus. The jumper is available on the ECO-MCC module front.
The connectors are detachable and allow automatic wire insertion (no screw). This allows direct connection to ECO-REL module. A cable connection is available as an accessory.
The module has the following characteristics:
- 24 programmable digital I/O (input/output)
- I/O overvoltage protection
- I/O isolation to 2500Vdc
- Communication interface to CAN - RF networks
- Galvanic isolation of the CAN network by an internal power supply
- Radio Frequency Communication with ECO-xxx modules
- Removable screwless insertion connectors
- 12 ... 24V external power supply for I/O (independent of ECO-MCC)
- I/O LED status display
- DIN rail mounting
How to view the ECO-NUM module Inputs - Outputs status?
Each digital I/O is connected to a LED that indicates its condition. The LEDs are placed on the ECO-NUM module front. Lit LED = ON output or input closed.
How is the ECO-NUM module powered?
A power connector is provided on the front panel. You can put a voltage of 12 ... 24V, the maximum consumption is 0.2 A. The I/O are galvanically isolated which requires a different set from the ECO-NUM power module. If there are several ECO-NUM or ECO-REL, power can be shared.
How to connect the CAN network?
The CAN network is used to send commands and read the status of another ECO-xxx module. You can connect multiple ECO-xxx modules on the CAN network, therefore it is necessary to place a resistor at each end of the network (jumper closed). Other intermediary ECO-xxx modules should not have placed resistance (jumper open). The jumper is located on the front face of the ECO-NUM module.
How does the RF network function?
Each ECO-NUM module includes a radio frequency network. The product is standardized and the radiated power does not exceed the standard. In the case of a cabinet configuration, it is necessary to place a remote antenna.
How to configure the ECO-NUM module?
It's very simple, you download the ECO-NETWORK setup software. ECO-NUM modules are identified by their unique UID address. The programming interface is user friendly and comes down to scheduling objects on the screen without specific programming knowledge.
