The FlexLogix controller adds control to the flexible, low-cost, modular FLEX I/O system. Use FlexLogix controllers to meet the needs of your distributed and stand-alone applications.
When planning I/O communications, consider:
- which FLEX I/O modules to use.
- where to place FLEX I/O modules.
- how FLEX I/O modules operate.
The FlexLogix controller supports FLEX and FLEX Ex I/O modules. FLEX and FLEX Ex I/O modules are packaged I/O modules that plug into terminal bases. The terminal base makes the backplane and provides the terminal connection points for wiring the I/O module.
|This family of I/O modules||Provides|
|FLEX I/O||FLEX I/O builds an I/O interface onto a terminal strip. Use the terminal strip on the terminal base to wire field devices directly.|
|FLEX Ex I/O||FLEX Ex adds galvanic isolation to the modularity of FLEX I/O. Dual-fault, intrinsically-safe circuits let you install I/O or connect to field devices in a hazardous area while maintaining a high degree of safety.|
Important: If you use FLEX Ex I/O modules, only connect the intrinsically-safe I/O modules to other intrinsically-safe apparatus to maintain the integrity of the intrinsically-safe system.
Do not mix regular FLEX I/O and FLEX Ex I/O on the same ControlNet network segment. You must separate the modules on different ControlNet segments using either a fiber hub (1786-RPA, 1786-RPFM and 1797-RPA, 1797-RPFM) or a ControlNet coax barrier (1797-BCNR).
You can connect FLEX Ex modules only on the local rail (not the extended-local rail) of a FlexLogix system using a 1797-BIC and 1797-CEC module pair.
