Konnect max distance

Post by cnc_freak » Tue Apr 21, 2020 8:37 pm

Hello Tom
I need to drive/read some 20 to 30 I/O's that are about 20 m away from kanalog. My question is, in order to spare the cabling how long can the cable between Kflop and Konnect be?
Alternatively is it possible to install a remote I/O slave device, which could communicate with Kflop via modbus? Is there any software example?
Regards.

Hi cnc_freak,

The ribbon cable between KFLOP and Kanalog should be several inches at most.

Kanalog has an RS232 port that can be used for Modbus. See the examples in:
C:\KMotion435b\C Programs\RS232\ModBus
