Features

We've realized a wire-saving system that's easy to use

We've realized a wire-saving system that's easy to use

High noise immunity

Large voltage amplitude (24 V) and wide pulse width (35 μs) signal transmissions make for units less prone to impulse noise effects with no code errors. This high level of noise proofing enables them to be used even in worksites with conventional, high-priced optical communication remote I/O units.

Specifies malfunctioning S-LINK I/O devices

In the event that verification cannot be obtained from an S-LINK I/O unit, such as if the main cable is cutoff, the address of the particular unverifiable S-LINK I/O unit is specified and displayed allowing equipment recovery time to be greatly reduced.

Specifies malfunctioning S-LINK I/O devices

Alleviates the burden laid on engineer for designing and wiring

Labor-saving hook-up connectors are used enabling multiple "T"-branch hookups.
It goes without saying that cascade wiring (bus wiring) as well as multiple branch wiring (star wiring) is also possible.

Alleviates the burden laid on engineer for designing and wiring

Simple and reliable connections

We've provided all types of hook-up connectors. Connections from S-LINK I/O devices to the main cable and from sensors and other devices to S-LINK I/O devices are all realized with one-touch hook-up connectors. They can be connected anywhere quickly and maintenance is easy.

Direct main cable connecting of sensors and actuators possible

All types of transmission line direct-connecting type sensors are made available. Even partner makers are putting on the market manifold electromagnetic valves and limit switches that can be directly connected with the S-LINK system making wire-saving and labor-saving a reality.

Mid-system main / branch cable installation and removal possible

For conveyors or other large scale equipment, transport can also be done after dividing the whole into units of several meters in length right at the factory. Then, reassembly and wiring can be effectuated onsite afterwards. Because the S-LINK can be easily divided even from mid-system main / branch cables with the help of commercially available connectors and terminals, the segmented equipment can be wired up prior to transport. Once onsite, assembly work is all but complete with just the connecting of the individual units to each other.
In addition, when assembling the equipment, the S-LINK can work even disconnected from the PLC enabling software (PLC programming) and hardware (machine assembly, I/O check) work to be done concurrently, which results in quick delivery time. With the handy monitor, I/O devices can be checked for each piece of equipment separately enabling subcontractors to conduct check work on delivery. This results in a total delivery deadline reduction and clearly defined subcontractor responsibilities. Also, checking can be performed even without programming so you’ll know immediately if malfunctions are coming from the PLC or the S-LINK.

Total cost reductions and great savings in setup time

By introducing the S-LINK, you can reduce the total cost of system construction to one-fifth. Total costs including for materials go down dramatically and, by decreasing the workload, construction time is lessened which means you can easily meet that tough deadline.
The S-LINK system:

● A hardware-only construction makes layout design simple
● With hook-up connectors, construction time is greatly reduced
● Layout modifications made easy
● Equipment divided into separate segments make for easy debugging
● Segmented equipment can be easily interlinked with commercially available connectors

Total cost reductions and great savings in setup time

Auxiliary materials reduced

Great reductions in auxiliary materials such as cable racks, cable ducts, intermediate terminal blocks, and cables. This system also contributes greatly to the reduction waste caused by cutting cable ends.

Auxiliary materials reduced

Space-saving

Because of great reductions in the amount of intermediate terminal blocks and cables needed, you can save space and minimize the size of your control board and machines.
This will finally let you put all that wasted space to good use.

Space-saving

Upper-level network connection possible

Because it can be connected to any main open network, long-distance and multi-point transmission networks can be constructed enabling a greatly enhanced network upgrade. Also, by wiring up scattered bit-oriented I/O devices that include mostly connected sensors and switches, an efficient wire-saving layout can be realized. If exporting equipment that was setup with any open network, it can be made to correspond to different networks just by installing an S-LINK gateway controller with the entire S-LINK system left as it is.

Applications

Distributed installation

■Automatic storage
Automatic storage

Because conveyors have multiple I/O device points, wire-saving and construction efficiency are the key to lowering overall costs. Other systems may be wire-saving but if they can't prove useful for long-distance distribution lines and be reliable, then they are useless. On this point, the S-LINK system offers a total wiring length of 400 m 1312 ft, 800 m 2625 ft when using booster, with reliable T-branch I/O device connections that can be mounted in any desired location.
Because T-branching renders layout designing simple, not only is it a wire-saving and construction efficient system, but you can even save time in the actual design stage.
In addition, you can divide main and branch cables in mid-system with commercially available connectors and terminals so the time it takes to setup your conveyor decreases greatly.

■Parking garage
Parking garage

The S-LINK system is very suitable to wire up car detection sensors in a large parking garage.
It reduces wires and installation time.

■Display panel control
Display panel control

Display equipment can be mounted in automobile production lines to notify operators when malfunctions occur or just to keep a reliable count of units in each line.
Because each type of display equipment shows variegated data, they necessitate a great amount of wiring. This wiring must be conducted in very large factories requiring a substantial amount of cables and wires. A wire-saving system in this situation would be most effective.
Using the S-LINK system means that even display equipment can be wired up with just one flat cable, and clearing up all the bulky wiring inside the display panels themselves and realizing great material cost savings as well as a reduced workload.

Integrated installation

■Automatic assembly machine
Automatic assembly machine

The wire-saving system is being greatly emphasized even for assembly lines crowded with multiple I/O devices.
Also, to enhance productivity, using a wire-saving system is the key to reliability and avoiding the occurrence of troubles.
In the S-LINK loop wiring, the system maintains signal transmission even when the loop may break at any one place.
Also, the controller displays disconnected unit address. Further, when excess current flows or short-circuit occurs in the signal transmission lines, the signal transmission is stopped to protect the system.
S-LINK is a wire-saving system optimal for the automatic assembly machinery.

■Turntable
Turntable

The wiring of I/O devices mounted on a rotating board (turntable) used to be quite a difficult task. Because a slip ring with the same number of terminals as wires had to be used.
Therefore, there have been difficulties such as employing a large slip ring or reduction of I/O point count.
S-LINK enables the connection of up to 128 I/O points on a 4-pole slip ring. A compact slip ring can be used without worrying about I/O points.

■Handler
Handler

"The handler" as the IC test equipment uses multiple sensors.
Cost reduction or downsizing depends on how to reduce these wires and to save space.
S-LINK realizes wire-saving and space-saving; hence these problems are solved all at once.

■Parts picking system
Parts picking system

Many small picking sensors are employed in the parts picking system in order to verify the correct selection of components.
The number of input points is required as much as the number of shelves, the number of output points is also required to be the same in adopting the operational indicators.
S-LINK system greatly contributes to wire-saving both in I/O points and in space. Also, extra shelves can be added easily.

Booster SL-BS1A It can extend the signal transmission distance by 200 m 656.168 ft.
A maximum of seven boosters can be connected for one S-LINK control unit.
However, one booster can never be followed by another booster in series.
Handy monitor SL-HM1 It can be connected at any place on the signal transmission line and the I/O states can be checked in batches of 16.
The handy monitor is also incorporated with the S-LINK control functions, so that, for example, it can perform an I/O check on conveyor system segments, still under assembly, even without the S-LINK controller.
