Decentralized, flexible, protocol independent
Cube is a modular fieldbus system designed for decentralized installation concepts. Its flexibility makes it easy to develop the right solution for any application.
Cube has great functionality, plug-in connections, a robust and compact design, encapsulated modules, multi-functional digital channels and IP ratings from IP20 to IP69k. The modules are installed right next to the sensors and actuators. A system cable connects modules to the bus node and transfers both data and power. Extensive diagnostics make it easy to solve problems if they occur. The number of terminals in the control cabinet is reduced through the distributed approach, freeing up space.
Cube solutions offer a valuable cost-benefit ratio across the entire life cycle of a machine through: the simplified design, fast assembly of the machine, error-free commissioning and maximized system uptime for efficient operation.

The bus node is the Cube system’s interface to the PLC. It supplies the system and all connected sensors and actuators with power while monitoring currents using a smart load circuit control (Mico).
The installation concept remains the same irrespective of the PLC and protocol. Simply swap the bus node to the chosen protocol. Murrelektronik offers bus nodes for all common field bus systems.
A system cable connects the modules to the bus node. This transfers both data and power – reducing your installation effort.
The wide variety of modules (digital, analog and function) helps create flexible and efficient installations in the field.
Cube20 integrates IO signals from subdistribution boards and terminal boxes (IP20) into the Cube installation in an economical, distributed manner.
A Cube system combines control cabinet installations (IP20) with field installations (IP67) in a simple manner.
Cube67 is a distributed and expandable modular fieldbus I/O system for IP67 applications. It enables customer-oriented installation concepts and is fully adaptable to the given application by being installed in immediate installed in immediate proximity to the process. A system line connects the modules to the bus node, transferring both data and power.
Cube20 is an expandable modular fieldbus I/O system for control cabinets. It can be operated as a stand-alone unit or with a Cube67. Cube20 is specifically designed for the requirements of modern control cabinet wiring. High costs due to handling of many individual components can be reduced to a minimum with Cube20.

MOM supports switching different Cube modules on or off via the controller during operation. This is the basis for modular machine configuration, easy tool changes, standard machines with different degrees of IO expansion, optional machine attachment parts and sequential commissioning. MOM reduces project planning and documentation efforts while also providing exceptional system flexibility.
