KR500-2-MT + KL1500-3
Devicenet with 1 BK5250 coupler and several DI/DO/AO modules
We are upgrading our cell for stone milling.
We are moving to a multiple spindle system and we plan to use a QC-310 tool changer from ATI.
The tool changer is controlled through a signal module which can be shipped in 2 flavors :
- "DB10" > devicenet capable control module (mini connector)
- "VB7Z1" > basic pass-through control module (26-pins amphenol cable)
I don't see if there is a preferred way to go : should I integrate the tool changer as a new devicenet device ? Or simply extend my existing I/O fieldbus with additional modules to map the I/O required by the tool changer control module ?
Would you advise one way more than the other ?
