An extended (16-slot) rack populated with 32-point I/O modules provides 512 I/O points. Using remote networked I/O (for example, via EtherCAT) up to 1000 inputs plus 1000 outputs are possible.
How many servo axes can be controlled?
A single system can support up to 16 servo axes, either directly via integrated servo control modules or using external EtherCAT-based drives. Additional axes of motion can be accommodated using multiple networked systems.
What is the maximum number of simultaneous tasks that can be running?
Up to 96 tasks may run simultaneously — note that this figure includes any running functions and events.
What is the physical size of a system?
Overall height is 4.1″ (104mm). Depth off panel (excluding DIN-rail mounting hardware) is 3.3″ (84mm), although additional space should be allowed for wiring. Overall width depends on rack configuration: 2-slot rack 4.1″ (104mm) typ., 4-slot rack 5.6″ (142mm) typ., 8-slot rack 8.6″ (218mm) typ., although certain power supply and CPU options may add up to 2.6″ (66mm) to overall widths.
How many communication ports are available?
Series 5300 systems provide two Ethernet ports and either (4) RS-232 serial ports or (2) RS-232 ports and (1) RS-485 port.
What types of analog I/O are available?
Modules supporting ±10V, ±20mV, 4-20 mA and thermocouple inputs are available. Analog output ranges of ±10V, 0-10V and 4-20 mA are also available.
