Automotive Manufacturer Retrofits Robots with LioN-Power I/O Modules

The Application Note explains:Application Note

  • How a connectivity solution with multiprotocol I/O modules enables automotive manufacturer to gain flexibility with a standardized concept

  • How to achieve fieldbus independent robot automation by applying multiprotocol technology supporting three of the largest Ethernet protocols within one single device

  • How multiple M12 Power connection options helped upgrading to a new technology without changing robot design

From the Application Note:

"The project was initiated to standardize the design for the robot control system by upgrading from PROFIBUS to PROFINET, while also working with different Ethernet protocols."

"The partners also wanted to simplify cabling design of robots to gain savings from standardization."
