Modicon TM3 I/0 system - your choice for flexible and customizable expansion of I/O terminals!
The specially developed Modicon TM3 I/O system enables flexible and customizable expansion of the I/O terminals in all of the controllers. Up to 14 terminals can be added to the controllers without tools. When the terminals are plugged in, their contacts are electrically linked to both the controller and the adjacent terminal. This high-speed expansion bus is 10 times faster than traditional solutions.The Modicon TM3 offer provides a large range of I/O systems to enhance the capabilities of Modicon M221, M241, M251 and M262 logic controllers:
In addition, the Modicon TM3 expansion system is flexible due to the possibility of remotely locating some of the Modicon TM3 modules in the enclosure or another cabinet (up to 5 meters away, using a bus expansion system. It is common to the whole range of Modicon M221, M241, M251 and M262 logic controllers, meaning that the model of controller can be revised without changing expansion module.
Bus couplers allow the creation of distributed islands of TM31/O modules, which can be managed by a master controller (M221, M241, M251 or M262) via fieldbus (EtherNet/IP, Modbus TCP, Modbus Serial Line or CANopen).
The Modicon TM3 is an EcoStruxure Machine I/O system. EcoStruxure Machine is an intuitive solution for machine automation with all the features and functions you need to build machines that will improve your bottom line. From design and development, to commissioning and maintenance, EcoStruxure Machine is a complete machine building solution with benefits all through the machine life cycle.
Modicon TM3 expansion modules have been designed with a simple interlocking assembly mechanism. A bus expansion connector is used to distribute data and the power supply when assembling the Modicon TM3 expansion modules with logic controllers.
