PACSystems RX3i
Networks and Distributed I/O Systems
The CMU310 is a High Availability redundant CPU that is configured
using the MaxON software. The CMU310 has the same functionality
as the CPU310. Synchronization of the CMU310s is via an Ethernet link.
The RX3i features a variety of communications options for distributed
control and/or I/O. Choose from Ethernet EGD, Profibus-DP, Genius and
DeviceNet. These communication modules are easy to install and quick
to configure.
The RX3i Universal baseplates support hot swap capability to reduce
downtime. Expansion bases are available in 5 and 10 slot versions to
maximize flexibility.
Universal Bases Power Supplies
The RX3i power supply modules simply snap in just like I/O, and they
work with any model CPU. Each version provides auto-ranging so
there is no need to set jumpers for different incoming power levels,
and they are current limiting so a direct short will shut the power
supply down to avoid damage to the hardware.
Discrete I/O Modules
Input modules provide the interface between the PLC and external
input devices such as proximity sensors, push buttons, switches, and
BCD thumbwheels. Output modules provide the interface between
the PLC and external output devices such as contactors, interposing
relays, BCD displays and indicator lamps.
Analog I/O Modules
GE offers easy-to-use analog modules and HART analog modules for
control processes such as flow, temperature and pressure.
Specialty Modules:
The RX3i features a wide range of Specialty Modules to address
specific application requirements. These modules include:
• Millivolt and Strain Gage I/O
• Thermocouple I/O
• Resistive I/O
• Temperature Control
• Power Transducer
RX3i Pneumatic Module
This output module provides 11 pneumatic outputs and five 24 VDC
sourcing outputs. For each pneumatic output, the module contains
an internal 3-way solenoid-actuated valve and an associated output
fitting. Solenoid power is supplied from an external 24 VDC source to
the“DC Outputs” connector on the front panel.
Expansion Modules for Local and Remote I/O
The RX3i supports various expansion options for local and remote
I/O to optimize configurations. The RX3i can be expanded up to 8
expansion bases using local remote expansion module. The RX3i also
supports Ethernet remote I/O using the RX3i Ethernet Network Interface module (IC695NKT001) Series 90-30 Ethernet Network Interface
module (IC693NIU004) for more distributed I/O.
Motion Control
The PACMotion controller is a versatile 4-axis servo motion controller that provides the scalability and flexibility to cover a full range
of motion applications from small material handling applications to
complex multi-axis machines and electronic line shaft applications.
PACMotion provides real-time synchronization of all axes in an RX3i
rack. A separate RX3i fast logic scan enables fast deterministic event
response and synchronization, and the demand driven data exchange
model between the RX3i CPU and PACMotion module many significantly reduce scan time impact. The 4-axis servo motion controller is
built on a high performance hardware platform, with a new enhanced
motion engine, operating system, and open standard integrated
programming paradigm.
PACSystems RX3i
Servo Control
High Speed Counters
Our advanced line of Digital Servo Motion (DSM) control integrated into
the RX3i fosters high performance point-to-point applications. Motion
Control modules can be flexibly applied to a variety of digital, analog,
and stepper motion applications and support centralized, distributed
or hybrid control system architectures. They are easy to program and
configure and include extensive built-in diagnostics.
The High Speed Counters can be configured for a wide range of
counter types (Types A, B, C, D, E, Z, and user-defined types of
counters), generate Controller interrupts and Camming/PLS
(Programmable Limit Switch).
