CsCan SmartStix I/O is compatible with all OCS/RCS units that feature a CsCAN port. SmartStix I/O includes a 5-pin terminal style network connector (plug). An m12 adapter is available as a separate accessory.
A New I/O for OCS
SmartStix I/O is a new terminal-block style I/O for the Operator Control Station (OCS). It can be used to expand the I/O capacity of any OCS and it is very cost effective as remote digital I/O. Because SmartStix I/O connects to any OCS CsCAN network port, it can be combined with our SmartStack I/O to provide the best I/O selection for the application.
Compact, DIN-rail Mounted
SmartStix I/O is extremely compact. For example, it provides 16 digital I/O in a package only 39mm deep and a footprint of 50mm x 116mm or 32 points in only 50mm x 177mm. With its small footprint, SmartStix I/O takes up very little panel space whether located in the main control panel or tucked away in a remote location. SmartStix I/O has a barrier style terminal strip and is designed to be mounted on a DIN-rail.
Expands I/O Capacity, Local or Remote
From the miniOCS* to the Colour-Touchscreen OCS, SmartStix I/O easily expands the I/O capacity of any OCS utilising the CsCAN network port available with every model. It is especially cost effective when added to a MiniOCS. SmartStix I/O offers fast response times without sacrificing robustness, with no need for a costly I/O interface unit. In addition to its peer-to-peer capabilities, CsCAN is used as a highly efficient method of distributing SmartStix I/O up to 500m** away.
Easy to Setup—Easy to Configure
Time and complexity to configure most Remote I/O systems is often a drawback. SmartStix I/O greatly reduces setup time. Just assign a unique ID to the I/O module using the integrated rotary switches, connect a 5-wire shielded cable, and add a single, simple function block to your Cscape control program. You’ll be up and running in no time.
