BMX EHC 0800 Module Wiring

At a Glance The BMX EHC 0800 counting module uses a standard BMX FTB 2000/2010/2020 20-pin connector (wiring terminal) . DANGER HAZARD OF ELECTRIC SHOCK disconnect voltage supplying sensors and pre-actuators before plugging / unplugging the terminal block on the module. remove the terminal block before plugging / unplugging the module on the rack. Failure to follow these instructions will result in death or serious injury. Field Sensors The module has type 3 inputs that support signals from mechanical switching equipment such as contact relays, push-buttons, limit switch sensors and two or three-wire switches that have: a voltage drop of less than 8V, current when ON more than or equal to 2 mA, current when OFF up to 1.5 mA. The module complies with all encoders that have a supply of between 10 and 30 VDC and push-pull outputs. Shielding is required if there is no filtering. Pin Assignments The following table describes the assignment of the 20-pin wiring terminal:
IN_A input for channel 0 IN_A input for channel 1 or IN_B input for channel 0 IN_A input for channel 2 IN_A input for channel 3 or IN_B input for channel 2 IN_A input for channel 4 IN_A input for channel 5 or in_B input for channel 4 IN_A input for channel 6 IN_A input for channel 7 or IN_B input for channel 6 VDC + power supply for sensors Functional earth, for shield continuation 2 4 6 8 10 12 14 16 18 20 1 3 5 7 9 11 13 15 17 19 IN_AUX input for channel 0 IN_AUX input for channel 1 IN_AUX input for channel 2 IN_AUX input for channel 3 IN_AUX input for channel 4 IN_AUX input for channel 5 IN_AUX input for channel 6 IN_AUX input for channel 7 Return + 24 V power supply for sensors Functional earth, for shield continuation

Sensor Connection Example The example below shows the most complete application using sensors:

Encoder Connection Example The example below shows an incremental encoder connection used for axis control connected to the counters channel 6 used in dual phase counting mode:

Channels 0 to 5 are still used in single mode. Channel 7 is no longer available. Safety Instructions WARNING UNEXPECTED EQUIPMENT OPERATION Follow those instructions to reduce electromagnetic perturbations: adapt the programmable filtering to the frequency applied at the inputs, or use a shielded cable (connected to the functional ground) connected to pins 15 and 16 of the connector when using an encoder or a fast detector.

In a highly disturbed environment, use the BMX XSP 0400/0600/0800/1200 electromagnetic protection kit (See Modicon M340 using Unity Pro, Processors, Racks and Power Supply Modules, BMX XSP xxx Protection Bar) to connect the shielding without programmable filtering and use a specific 24 VDC supply for inputs and a shielded cable for connecting the supply to the module. Electromagnetic perturbations may cause the application to operate in an unexpected manner. Failure to follow these instructions can result in death, serious injury, or equipment damage. The figure below shows the recommended circuit for a highly disturbed environment using the BMX XSP 0400/0600/0800/1200 electromagnetic protection kit:

CAUTION IMPROPER FUSE SELECTION Use fast acting fuses to protect the electronic components of the module from overcurrent and reverse polarity of the input/output supplies. Improper fuse selection could result to damage to the module. Failure to follow these instructions can result in injury or equipment damage.
