I/O Network Intermingles Peripheral Power & Communication

product pic

Cable requirements are said to be reduced to just two conductors that carry both power and signals with Interbus Loop, which uses the power supply not only to power the I/O devices, but also to transmit network signals to the devices. This technology modulates the Interbus protocol signal onto the power supply. Connections are easier with a waterproof IDC circular connector for round cables.The Interbus Loop uses the same protocol as the Interbus I/O network standard, enabling one protocol to communicate with a wide range of devices, from high-level Devicebus products such as process controllers, down to simple Sensorbus devices such as photoelectric and proximity sensors.The initial release of Interbus Loop is a developer's kit that includes the protocol chips and supporting components and I/O modules. The kit enables manufacturers of sensors and actuators to incorporate Interbus Loop directly onto their products.
