I am very lost with Fanuc's options and locations regarding field IO and wonder if someone offer a recommendation.
A client of mine has just purchased a number of R-J3IB Controllers and R2000iA 210F arms from an automation plant being decommissioned and they all have devicenet installed.
So assumption is that these systems were all hooked up to devicenet PLC's.
My client only wants to use a small amount of IO, maybe only 8 inputs and 8 outputs and doesn't really want to spend money/resource in having to buy a PLC to communicate.
Therefore, they are looking at removing the devicenet boards and fitting a basic hardwired IO interface.
This is where I am confused.
The cabinet itself is small, compact with no room at all (reference the attached images).
Reference the images below.
Are there any IO boards available that can be plugged into any of the 'circled' slots that could provide the hardwired IO interface?
If so, can anyone direct me to a specific manual I could locate this information (not provide the manual, but which manual this information is likely to be in if such a board exists).
Any comments or information would be very much appreciated.............
