Expand with up to 7 racks
CS1 systems can operate on 24 VDC power supply, or on 100 - 240 VAC mains. For small-scale systems with mainly digital I/O a low-cost small-capacity power supply can be used. For systems with many analog I/Os and control/communication units, it may be necessary to use a larger power supply unit.
PLC racks are available in several sizes, from 2 to 10 slots wide. Special backplanes are required for duplex systems. Depending on the CPU type, up to 7 expansions can be connected to the CPU rack, giving a total capacity of 80 I/O units. The total length of the expansion cables of one system may be up to 12 m.
