Luetze’s Lcos and Locc-Box series includes bus couplers which communicate via CANopen.
The bus couplers connect the Profinet bus and Ethercat bus to the peripheral modules and facilitate communication. The couplers communicate internally via CANopen ISO 11898-1. Communication with external Locc-Boxes on the bus is configured with a 2-pole design. Up to 64 modules can be installed on the bus couplers. In operation with external Locc-Boxes, up to a maximum of 128 bus couplers can be installed. Loads are connected via pluggable 2-pole spring terminals (AWG 24- AWG 12). The parameterization is performed using the free Luetze Windows software Locc-Pads.
The status indications are visualized by LEDs for Power, Maintenance, Error, and BC-Error. The bus couplers comply with the standards UL 61010, EN 61131-2, EN 55016, EN 61000-4-2/3/4/5/6, EN 55011, EN60721-3-3, EN 60068-2-1-42. The approvals for UL and GL are pending.
