Take Control of your Process

THE POWER OF THE -106.

Universal Analog Inputs
Providing your controllers with even more I/O capabilities, the -106 utilizes 6 analog inputs, 4 analog outputs, 12 digital inputs, and 12 digital outputs. Software configurable, these inputs are universal for such signals as voltage (0-10, 0-60mV), current (0-20, 4-20mA), thermocouples, and RTD (PT100, PT1000). 

By selecting the -106 factory I/O option board for the XL controller, most process inputs can be captured, reducing the need for remote I/O or signal conditioners – cost-reducing and centralizing control applications. 

Software Programmable I/O
Incorporating the Horner -106 I/O factory option into your automation scheme makes connecting disparate field signals easier than ever. Now, each individual input and output are completely configured within Cscape, eliminating the need for time-consuming hardware setup; no jumpers. 


Available with XL Series Controllers

Optimizing I/O for any process application, the -106 complements our entire suite of XL products. The -106 is a compatible option for all the XLe, XLt, XL4, and XL7 controllers.

SmartBlock I/O & SmartBlock Specialty I/O Certified for Canada

Posted by Christine

in Products

SmartBlock I/O features a variety of Analog and Specialty modules. SmartBlock I/O is designed to compliment the popular SmartStix Digital I/O family. These two I/O families can be used to expand the I/O capacity of just about any Operator Control Station (OCS) by merely a few points - or potentially thousands of points.

SmartStix I/O is an ideal terminal-block style Digital I/O system - but SmartBlock I/O is built for Analog. Like it's SmartStix cousin, SmartBlock I/O is mounted on DIN-rail, although through hold mounting is also supported for flexibility. SmartBlock can be mounted locally in the same panel as the OCS, or can be mounted remotely up to 500 meters away. SmartBlock is based on the proven CsCAN network, which uses industry-standard CAN chipsets for noise immunity and data integrity. But unlike other industrial implementation of CAN like DeviceNet, SmartBlock's CsCAN network sets the bar with its ease of configuration in the CsCAPE software.

SmartBlock has numerous convenience features...a dual CsCAN plug for easy "in & out" network connections...spring clamp removable terminal blocks for quick field wiring...indicator LEDs for power, module and network status...a hinged door for dip switch access, and much more! Check it out!

Horner Announces Launch of CsCape 9.50

Posted by Christine

With Cscape 9.50, Horner includes a variety of features, enhancing the programming environment and user experience. Adding Tag Based Advanced Ladder Logic offers an alternate way to program controllers using tagged variables, such as “Pump_Operation,” rather than a fixed register in the target device.

Tag Based editing allows for clearer coding and ease of use for a variety of different levels coding experience. When using variables while programming with Tag Editing it’s more difficult to accidentally overlap registers, cutting down significant causes of programming errors,” says Eric Broyer, Global Product Manager for Horner Automation Group.

Along with adding Tag Based editing, Cscape 9.50 includes advancements in graphics control and functionality including: background and button gradations on 15-bit or higher color units, smoother gradient transitions on Horner’s powerful all-in-one controllers that support 24-bit color, and bitmap transparency functionality.

Data logging receives an upgrade as well, both visually on-screen and functionally. Now Historical data trending tracks data over time, and trending objects can be set to log-to and replay-from a removable media device.

In addition to the many new benefits, Cscape 9.50 supports PID Tuning for IEC environments. Now, the programmer has the capability to open a pop-up window tool that will tune a PID loop in IEC programs.

Download your free CsCape directly from the Horner APG Canada website today!

Horner Automation Group announces the launch of the XL7, its newest addition to the XL OCS series. The innovative XL7 provides original equipment manufacturers (OEMs,) integrators and automation end-users with a powerful high performance logic controller and twice the connectivity of all other products in its class.

The XL7 was designed around a high-resolution wide aspect ratio 7” WVGA color touchscreen with 1000 nits of brightness. The innovative display provides high outdoor visibility and allows the XL7 to be used in a wide variety of ambient condition applications. The backlit LED display enables a higher pixel resolution granting end-users the capability to view more in-depth information on screen.

In addition to its exceptional display performance, the XL7 contains a powerful logic engine with built-in digital and analog I/O for online programming – a valuable feature for machine commissioning. Also featured are two 500 kHz high-speed counters and dual 10/100 Ethernet ports. This adds flexibility when linking to factory networks like Modbus/TCP and Ethernet/IP, while performing standard functions such as: web serving, FTP file transfer, E-mail and protocol support.

The XL7’s dual CAN Ports put your applications into motion. One port utilizes CsCAN for Distributed Plug and Play I/O over a 500m distance. The second port provides support for CANopen and J1939 for mobile applications.

“The XL7 combines the X-Product family functionality with the speed and graphics capability of a 10” controller. Already designed to fit in any previous 6” HMI location, the added Dual Port capabilities give customers flexible networking capabilities at a considerable cost advantage,” states Eric Broyer, Global Product Manager, Horner Automation Group.

The XL7 OCS also provides customers with USB 2.0 ports for programming and flash drive support and 32GB microSD™ slot for virtually unlimited data logging.

Learn more about the XL7 or contact us for more details.
