Toline XM multiplexes PLC I/O signals and transmits it to two conductor rails. Communication occurs while carriers are moving.  The Toline XM can control up to 32 carriers.

TBM32 (Master) accesses the PLC’s internal I/O register via an Ethernet port and amplifies the PLC I/O signals to 48VDC. The high voltage multiplexed signal secures communication stability on the sliding medium while in motion. High voltage removes oxide film.

TBM32 also transmits signals to all slave units simultaneously.

TBS32 (Slave) communicates with TBM32 via conductor rail.  Slave modules can handle up to 224 points of I/O, using a combination of XD216 and TYN16 I/O modules. This system does not require a PLC or I/O on the carrier, reducing costs.

TSE32 (Slave Ethernet I/F) interfaces between TBM and the carrier PLC.
