8520-KBI

Revisions: Ser A 
Description: The Allen-Bradley 8520-KBI is a KEYBOARD INTERFACE for the I/O RING. It is used as a part of Allen-Bradley’s 9/Series CNC machining systems. This is an interface component that receives all the data entering through the keyboard and the soft keys on the 9/series CNC human-machine interface and transfers it to the I/O ring. The keyboard I/O ring interface connectors (black for the receiver and red for the transmitter) are used to connect fiber optic cables to send and receive data from a 51 alphanumeric soft keys keyboard. read more...

About 8520-KBI

The Allen-Bradley 8520-KBI is a KEYBOARD INTERFACE for the I/O RING. It is used as a part of Allen-Bradley’s 9/Series CNC machining systems. This is an interface component that receives all the data entering through the keyboard and the soft keys on the 9/series CNC human-machine interface and transfers it to the I/O ring. The keyboard I/O ring interface connectors (black for the receiver and red for the transmitter) are used to connect fiber optic cables to send and receive data from a 51 alphanumeric soft keys keyboard. This is how the keyboard I/O ring interface represents a medium for data transfer from the operator (start machine functions and program editing) to the CNC control devices. The 8520-KBI also works together with the MTB panel (switches and push buttons) as well as the HPGs to enable the operator to interface with the CNC motherboard and CPU.



The 8520-KBI keyboard I/O ring interface receives 5 Volts of DC power from the operator panel power supply. For setting a node address of this interface module two jumpers (JP1 and JP2) are available. The third jumper JP3 is used to select a type of monitor to be attached (monochrome or color operator panel). The 8520-KBI has a fault indicator integrated on its board. This fault indicator is a red LED, which will be activated if there is a ring communication error. CNC 9/series systems provide a possibility of using multiple keyboards on the communication ring. If this is the case, a PAL is used to select the active keyboard over the $KYB_SEL option. By doing this, the PAL enables the operator to connect a keyboard while disregarding other keyboard connections on the communication ring for access to the control device (their inputs will not execute commands and only monitoring is enabled).
