Industrial Distributed Control Unit

Lion DCU

LioN-P DCU1 combines the benefits of a field-level (IP67) I/O module and a programmable logic controller (PLC) into one device for easy, customized performance of automation functions.



  • Improve overall automation security through the DCU1’s integrated intelligence to ensure control applications can run, even if there is a PLC failure.
  • Replace modules faster by using the universal channels as digital input or digital output, without any configuration necessary. This flexibility lowers module exchange time.
  • Simplify machine transparency by transforming fieldbus machines into Ethernet-ready devices that can work across a variety of protocols.
  • Internal cycle time of ca. 10 ms (minimum)
  • Three operating modes – slave I/O, standalone DCU or mixed DCU/PLC
  • Program memory of 99 rungs (maximum)/99 bit variables/ 99 integer variables
  • Integrated 16MB flash memory
  • PROFINET V2.3 (CC-C), Netload Class III, FSU, MRP
  • EtherNet/IP according to CIP Edition V3.11, EIP adaption of CIP V1.12, DLR, Quick Connect
  • EtherCAT I/O according to ETG.1000 V1.2, auto-increment and fixed addressing, CoE, EoE, FoE
  • I/O function available in 16DIO (universal) and 8DI 8DO
  • IP-rated for IP65, IP67 and IP69K
