Orbit Modules and Gateways

Ethernet IP Module
  • Simple interface between Orbit® and PLC using Ethernet/IP
  • ODVA conformance tested
  • Cyclic and Explicit Data

     

The PIM, is a PLC compatible EtherNet/IP™ to ORBIT®3 interface module, that enable easy connections between any EtherNet/IP™ enabled controller and Solartron’s flexible ORBIT®3 digital measurement system.
The PIM makes it simple to interface a wide range of contact and non contact linear measurement sensors, rotary encoders, temperature and pressure sensors and discrete inputs and outputs via EtherNet/IP™ .

This stand alone, Din Rail mounted module provides one EtherNet/IP™ port and one ORBIT®3 port which can power up to ten sensors;. This can be extended up to a maximum of 150 sensors with the use of supplementary power modules. The EtherNet/IP™ protocol driver supports the Explicit and Cyclic Messaging implementation of the protocol as a server. The EtherNet/IP™ port is a very powerful data transfer tool designed for easy connection to Rockwell Automation PLCs. Applications are found in many industries including manufacturing, automation and control, power generation and food processing.

Whether it be PC, laptop or PLC, Solartron offers a range of Interface Modules and PLC gateways for directly connecting to an Orbit® Network with the Controller of your choice.The interface module provides a method of connecting controllers to the Orbit® network where the controller itself runs the network. The interface module simply translates and retransmits the Orbit® commands between the Network and the Controller.


Orbit® Special Modules
  • Analogue Input
  • Encoder Input
  • Digital Input and Output
  • Digimatic
  • PT100 temperature
  • Strain Gauge
  • Load Cells
  • TTL Output

Solartron offer a range of modules for 3rd party sensors and general instrumentation tasks that expand the Orbit® Measurement System for applications that are not just linear measurement.
