The L5300 LinkStation is a high speed smart microprocessor developed and built by Parker Eurotherm SSD Drives, used for industrial processor control.
Using a Windows based graphic software DSD (Drive System Designer) and the LinkCards that are compatible with the integrating with the processor, it is possible for the modules in the L5300 to be configured by an operator. These units can be configured to compute line sequencing, complete process control functions, and direct the connected motor drive controllers via the LINK control network.
The LinkRacks have four slots for adding various LinkCards. A standard L5311 RTN LinkCard enables units to communicate with the acrylic fiber LINK network. Other cards include analogue and digital Input and Output, DeviceNet, and glass RTN.
The L5300 is meant to be mounted to a DIN rail. Make sure to the module with both hands, tilting it up, and engage the rear panel hooks to the top edge of the DIN rail. Move them down until the clip snaps into the bottom edge of the rail.
Make certain that the L5300 is properly ventilated to ensure that it does not exceed the operational temperature rating of 32 to 122 degrees Fahrenheit, or 0 to 50 degrees Celsius.
The standard power intake of the L5300 microprocessor ranges between 85 and 265 volts of alternating current.
The L5300’s standard physical dimensions are a height of 128 millimeters (5.04 inches), a width of 195 mm (7.68 in), and a depth of 115 mm (4.53).
