ClearLink - EtherNet/IP Motion and I/O Controller

CLNK-4-13

Each ClearLink Industrial I/O and Motion Controller handles up to 4 axes of high-speed step & direction motion, and provides 13 software-configurable analog and digital I/O points (fully protected and 24 VDC compatible); compatible with any EtherNet/IP PLC.

Rich EDS file support reduces development time. LEDs for each I/O point provide easier troubleshooting to reduce downtime.

You can expand each ClearLink’s digital I/O by adding up to eight CCIO-8 expansion modules. This provides up to an additional 64 points of configurable digital I/O.

See the ClearLink main product page for more information.

Processing/Communication
Total I/O13 built-in I/O points, software configurable as any combination of up to 13 digital inputs, 4 analog inputs, 6 digital outputs, and 1 analog output (4-20mA or 0-20mA).

Another 64 digital I/O can be added by using optional 8-point I/O expansion modules (p/n CCIO-8).

All configuration of I/O hardware is controlled by software, i.e., no jumpers, DIP switches, trim-pots, etc. need to be manually set.
Serial communication1 multi-functional, individually configurable serial port that can be used as a UART, or RS-232 at up to 115.2 kBaud.

Rates up to 2MBaud are achievable depending on cable length, slave transceiver circuit and grounding.

5V power pins are available on each port.

Easily connect 6 signals from a differential quadrature encoder (A+ A~, B+ B~ and optionally I+ I~) to ClearLink using only 3 digital inputs (DI-6, 7 and 8), without wiring to separate terminal blocks. Connect your encoder to the adapter's DB-9 input and connect the adapter to ClearLink with a standard ribbon cable (20-pin, 0.1" pitch) for a simple noise-free setup. The adapter provides overload-protected +5 volts for the encoder, and "bad sequence" detection warns of faulty or dirty encoders.
