The ESX-3IOS is a CAN-I/O module for the extension of the inputs/outputs of a master control unit via CAN. The communication with the master control unit takes place via CANopen, CANopen Safety, the STW protocol ECeS and J1939. The ESX-3IOS fulfills the safety requirements laid down in SIL 2 and PL d. For safe communication, the CANopen safety protocol and ECeS are supported. In addition to the Wake-up via terminal 15 / D+, Wake-up can also be carried out via CAN. Due to the robust aluminum die cast housing, a total current of up to 12 A can be implemented. The ESX-3IOS has over 16 inputs and 15 outputs.
The control unit is supported through the CANopen safety protocol and possesses the CAN Wake-up function.
