I/O and Expansion units
« am: Dezember 09, 2010, 14:03:20 Nachmittag »
Before purchasing the MFD, I have a few things I want to clear out.

Originally, I want to have a combination of the following:

MFD-80-B (display)  +  MFD-AC-CP8-ME (power supply/CPU)  +  MFD-AC-R16 (I/O)

which makes sense

But then I realize that if I use the standard I/O module (MFD-AC-R16), the outputs won't be enough to suit my application.
So I checked the expansion units, then found EASY618-AC-RE, which is compatible according to the manual.

So my question is, can I use the expansion unit (EASY618-AC-RE) WITHOUT the standard I/O unit (MFD-AC-R16)
That would save me some money.

And if I am going to use the expansion unit, which cable do I need to connect it to the power supply/CPU and the display unit? Please provide me the specific part number.

Thanks a lot!!

Dear applefreak,

please use the easysoft and try to make a project.

You will see that`s ok, if you connect the mfd with the expansion unit 618 without the MFD-AC-R16.

To connect the mfd with the expansion unit 618 you need a plug contact. This part is including in the

expansion unit.

Dear applefreak.

You have a second option to get in total 6 outputs.

You may use the I/O-module MFD-AC-R16 with the extension unit EASY202-RE.

As far as I remember the price is the same or a little less, but the advantage is, that the
installation is "nicer". The Easy202 is much smaller than the EASY618.

Maikky

Thanks for the reply.

But if I were to use the expansion unit, how do I mount the CPU unit and the display unit on the wall along with the expansion unit?

Is the part called "EASY-Link-DS"? I'm buying 2nd hand parts, I have to make sure they include it.

Maikky, that will still make me buy two parts...

Thanks!

Dear applefreak.

The connection indeed is called EasyLink. For reference see attached sheet.

Regarding the mounting I also attached a part of the manual. If you like to use the
Easy618 - expansion please note, that you need a 3rd support, because it is longer.

If you use the Easy202-expansion the 3rd support is not necessary. That's why I
think the installation is "nicer".

Maikky

Thank you Maikky,

Sorry, but where's the attached sheet?
But I got the idea, I just need to know how the 3rd support is intalled.

Thanks
