Overview of our IOs


Our products at a glance

Ideal ratio between function and size

The KeConnect C5 I/O modules impress with an optimal ratio of functionality to volume.

In order to respond perfectly to customer requirements, our I/O modules are available in two different sizes. This considerably reduces the space required in the switching cabinet and optimizes costs.

The slim modules stand out due to their absolutely minimal space requirement. The somewhat wider modules score points with an increased range of functions and thus more flexibility, such as with up to 40 connection pins per module.

Your benefits at a glance:

  • different I/O sizes to choose from
  • Attached to C5 controller or remote via bus coupler
  • Connection to external control without effort
  • Tailored to your needs

Our I/O-Modules

Analog modules

IOs analog

Highest precision
Analogue signals are transmitted to the controller or supplied to the peripherals with the highest accuracy and interference immunity. A microcontroller converts the measured values of the analog inputs and outputs with the calibration data and passes the standardized values on to the higher-level automation device.

Your benefits at a glance:

  • Optionally, analog current and voltage signals can be processed
  • Analog voltage inputs can be operated potentiometrically or differentially
  • Measuring accuracy due to high resolution and noise immunity
  • Input and output ranges can be freely defined by the configurability
  • Fast diagnosis in case of cable or sensor defects due to early break detection for analog voltage inputs

Digital modules

IOs digital

Switch off quickly and safely

The digital I/Os are optimized for fast detection of digital signals and switching of actuators. They can be operated directly on a controller or remotely via a bus coupler.

The modules are available in various granularities for inputs and outputs. Mixed modules guarantee a price- and space-optimized utilization.

Your benefits at a glance:

  • Usability of selected digital inputs as interrupt inputs or for period time measuremen
  • Digital outputs with a nominal load of 2 A for fastest switching cycles of inductive loads due to optimised switch-off behaviour
  • Galvanic isolation of the 2 A outputs which can be supplied individually

  • Fast diagnosis in case of cable or sensor defects through sensor break detection

KeConnect C5

  • Temperature measurement modules: TI 550, TI 570, TI 571

Positioning modules

IOs positioning modules

Exact positioning and speed measurement

Positioning modules from KEBA acquire position signals or speed information from incremental and SSI encoders.

Frequency measurement with incremental encoder module

The frequency evaluation of the rising and falling edges of both tracks leads to a significantly better time resolution of the frequency value at low encoder frequencies compared to the control cycle time. Thanks to an adjustable gate time, the behaviour of the frequency measurement can be adapted to the respective application requirements in terms of reaction speed and resolution.

Latch inputs for incremental encoder module

The assignment of the latch inputs to the incremental encoders can be configured as required. Worldwide usability is made possible by the simple switchability of the input circuitry (sink/source).

Integration of various SSI encoders

The individual SSI interfaces can be adapted to the specifics of the encoders used via various configuration settings, such as bit rates, telegram lengths, bit masks and coding.

KeConnect C5

  • Positioning module: MM 540, MI 550

System modules

IOs system modules

System rounding off

System modules serve to functionally round off KeConnect module systems.

Additional power supply modules increase the supply power if the integrated power supply unit of a CPU or bus coupler module is not sufficient to supply a directly attached KeConnect C5 module package.
