Building a New Electric World
A modular design...
Momentum is a flexible, modular family
of automation products – I/O modules,
processors, communication adapters and
option adapters – that can be configured
for a wide range of control applications.
Because of Momentum’s flexible architecture, the same modular design that
makes it perfect for today also means
that it will adapt to your changing needs
in the future.
2 meet your needs
now and in the future
Momentum: small size and modular design adds up to
lower life cycle costs
Momentum products have been designed with every aspect
of the cost of ownership in mind. From design to installation to
support, Momentum saves you time and money.
Small footprint
for lower installation costs
The entire line of Momentum products are based on small block I/O
modules that require significantly less control cabinet space than
traditional rack based PLC systems. They fit into existing facilities
where control cabinet space is at a premium for a lower installed cost.
Minimized wiring
saves money
Momentum’s small size also allows you to mount them close to field
devices for shorter wire runs, significantly reducing wiring and
associated costs. Plus they are designed to simplify cabinet layout
and wiring with direct connection to 2, 3 and 4 wire field devices.
Flexible architectures are a snap
No matter what controller or network you prefer, standardizing on a
common I/O platform means less engineering, reducing overall
machine and project cost. Momentum connects to a wide range of
fieldbus networks in a snap...literally. Each communication adapter
or processor adaptor mounts quickly and easily on an I/O base.
and diagnostics
Momentum saves you time and money by simplifying maintenance
and diagnostic tasks. Removable terminal strips and snap-on
communication adapters and processors allow the I/O base to be
replaced without disturbing field wiring to help reduce system
downtime. Module diagnostics and intuitive LED displays also
streamline maintenance. With just a glance, LED indicators clearly
display system status such as power, module readiness, network
communications, discrete output health, and I/O point status.
Creating the right
system is a snap
The Momentum system includes four fundamental
components that easily snap together in various combinations
to form versatile control systems or sub-systems.
I/O Bases
The I/O base provides the foundation for the rest of the Momentum
control system and serves as the mounting base for communication
adapters, processors or option adapters – which all snap onto the
I/O module. In addition to providing I/O capability, the base also
includes the power supply for module circuits, option adapters,
processors, and communication adapters.
There are currently over thirty I/O module types available in the
Momentum product line, including analog I/O, discrete I/O,
multi-function analog, bi-directional discrete, and specialty modules
such as a high-speed counter. Momentum I/O modules utilize
simple plug-in terminal blocks for direct wiring to 2, 3, and 4-wire
field devices. The I/O bases can be mounted either on a standard
35mm DIN rail or directly in panels for easy installation.
The Momentum system offers a wide selection of communication
adapters that snap onto any of the I/O modules, thus creating a
truly open I/O system that can be easily adapted to many popular
fieldbus networks. Communication adapters are available for
Modbus TCP/IP, Modbus Plus, FIPIO, INTERBUS, Profibus DP,
and DeviceNet.
When a Momentum I/O base is coupled with a communication
adapter, they form a distributed I/O drop that connects directly
to any of the fieldbus I/O networks mentioned above.
Like the communication adapters, Momentum processors mount
onto the I/O module, providing the same compact form-factor.
In addition, Momentum processors offer the same high level of
control capability as larger rack-based PLCs and provide a costeffective solution for many midsize control applications.
There are currently 12 Momentum processors, ranging from a
processor mounted on a single local I/O module, to models that
service up to 8192 I/O points with built-in distributed I/O communication port, Modbus TCP/IP-Ethernet communication, and
embedded web pages.
Option Adapters
Option Adapters provide additional networking capabilities to the
processors, as well as a time-of-day clock and battery back up.
The Option Adapter also snaps onto the I/O base, with a Processor
Adapter mounted on top.

Momentum Processors
and Control Capability
Momentum processors fit onto any of the Momentum I/O
modules and include up to two communication ports,
enabling them to be utilized in standalone, distributed, and
integrated control system configurations.
The right
the right size
The key to the success of the Momentum system is its modularity and
versatility. Depending on your needs, you can choose the number of
I/O modules and processor size to control for a wide variety of
system configurations and then simply snap it together with an I/O
base for a complete solution.
A standalone control system utilizes a single Momentum processor
with dedicated local and/or distributed I/O. Momentum is ideally
suited for standalone control system applications where I/O requirements do not exceed 32 Discrete or 16 Analog points in a single
location. When your I/O requirements exceed these levels, or when
there is more than one I/O location, there are other Momentum
processors that include an integrated distributed I/O communication
port (I/O Bus) that support up to 128 I/O modules for a total of
4096 I/O points. This enables the I/O modules to be placed close
to the field devices that they connect to, reducing wire run length,
which in turn reduces the total system cost.
One of the many applications for a standalone Momentum control
system independent or high-speed processing. Rather than putting
a communication adapter on the I/O base, a processor can be
used. The result is a simple, small controller that can perform PID
control when mounted on an analog I/O module or provide high
speed response when used with a digital I/O module.

Distributed control allows you to split the control function between
multiple controllers as opposed to having a single centralized controller. With the Momentum system, the control of an application can be
divided between multiple Momentum processors, each dedicated to
control an operation or section of a process. Momentum processors
can use either Modbus Plus or Ethernet communication networks to
connect all of the processors, providing a high-speed link to exchange
interlocks, statuses, and operational data.
Other benefits of distributing control with Momentum:
• Simplifies system integration, programming, and maintenance, all
contributing to a lower life cycle cost of the control system.
• As new operations or processes are added to the overall system,
additional Momentum processors can be added and connected to
the network, providing easier system expansion.
• Momentum distributed control is ideally suited for flexible manufacturing operations where machines or processes are added and/
or removed as needed to manufacture a wide range of products.
• The Modbus Plus and Ethernet networks that are used to network
distributed controllers also have the ability to download complete
controller programs, enabling new programs to be easily changed
or added as the process or operation changes.
Control with
I/O integrated
in a Quantum
control system
Momentum processors can be used as part of an integrated control
system architecture with other models of Schneider controllers. In
these applications, Momentum processors can perform local
control, or off-load some of the fast response control from larger
processors. This capability is also ideal in existing systems where
the control and/or I/O capacity has been maximized and there are
additional requirements for additional I/O or control capability. In
such cases the Momentum processor and I/O can easily be integrated into the total system with minimal downtime at a fraction of
the cost of a new control system.

I/O solutions
The wide range of Momentum I/O modules and communication
adapters enable them to be used with a number of head end
devices in distributed I/O applications. These head end devices
can include any of the existing Schneider Automation PLCs,
competitive PLCs, and open control systems that use a PC or
proprietary controller.
Momentum I/O modules provide a compact, cost effective solution
for both discrete and analog I/O in a compact block style form
factor, and can operate on networks with other network
compliant devices.
Cost effective
Wiring from field devices to terminals in central panels and from
terminal blocks to I/O modules in large racks requires significant
time and material to install.
Momentum eliminates the terminal blocks and long device-wire
runs by bringing the I/O modules closer to sensors and actuators.
