Murrelektronik Beefs Up its Award Winning Modular Fieldbus System

Leading automation solutions provider adds new features to its Cube67+ system – the next generation of I/O connectivity.

Murrelektronik, the global automation systems component provider announced today the addition of three new features to its Cube67+ modular system – Placeholder, Free Mapping and Machine Option Management – increasing the efficiency of its diagnostic capabilities.

Handled as a compact device on Ethernet/IP programming tools, Cube67+ can be customized to meet the specific requirements of an installation solution. Characterized by its single cable technology, multi-function modules, flexible installation methods and robust, potted circuitry, Cube67+ transfers both power and data from a single bus node to connected modules simplifying installation. Three new features now add greater flexibility to an already state-of-the-art system:

•    The Placeholder allows users to reserve input and output bytes inside the Cube67+ station for future system expansions.
•    The Free I/O Mapping functionality allows users to define the addresses of each I/O module connected to the Cube67+ station.
•    Machine Option Management allows users to change the topology of a Cube67+ station without changing his PLC program.

“These three updates to the CUBE67+ bus node represent our commitment to continually improving our IO offerings,” said Aaron Henry, Marketing Manager. “These changes will simplify installation and expand the usability of the modular system for future installations and enhance current system capabilities.”
Rated IP67, Cube67+ works outside the cabinet, and is tough enough to handle water, oil and any use and abuse placed upon modern industrial machines. The new features of the Cube67+ modular system offers best-in-class diagnostic software that sends a message to the controller visually pinpointing where the fault lies. This allows users to quickly and efficiently correct the problem, without reprogramming the entire machine, thereby reducing downtime and stabilizing productivity. The newly upgraded Cube67+ Ethernet/IP bus node (Art. No. 56535) is now available worldwide.
