BK9055 Compact Series EtherNet/IP Bus Coupler

BK9055 Compact Series EtherNet/IP Bus Coupler

Beckhoff Automation's BK9055 Bus Coupler connects EtherNet/IP with the modular, extendable electronic terminal blocks. One unit consists of one Bus Coupler, any number from 1 to 64 terminals (255 with K-bus extension) and one end terminal. The Bus Coupler recognizes the terminals to which it is connected, and performs the assignment of the inputs and outputs to the words of the process image automatically. The BK9055 Bus Coupler supports 10 Mbit/s and 100 Mbit/s Ethernet. Connection is through normal RJ 45 connectors. The IP address is set on the DIP switch (offset to a freely selectable start address). In networks with DHCP (a service for the allocation of the logical IP address to the physical node address [MAC-ID]) the Bus Coupler obtains its IP address from the DHCP server.

Ethernet/IP is the Industrial Ethernet standard of ODVA (Open DeviceNet Vendor Association). Ethernet/IP is based on Ethernet TCP/IP and UDP/IP - IP stands for Industrial Protocol. Essentially, the CIP (Common Industrial Protocol) used in ControlNet and DeviceNet was ported to Ethernet TCP/IP and UDP/IP. The BK9000 and BK9050 Bus Couplers support the operation of all Bus Terminal types. The analog and multi-functional Bus Terminals can be adapted to each specific application using the KS2000 configuration set. Depending on the type, the analog Bus Terminals' registers contain temperature ranges, gain values and linearisation characteristics. With the KS2000, the required parameters can be set on a PC. The Bus Terminals store settings permanently and in a fail-safe manner.
