LUMBERG has added a new line of Profibus I/O modules with built-in rotary addressing switches to its line of enclosure-less solutions, available from Balluff-Leuze .
The eight port modules with M12 connectors can handle up to 16 digital inputs, eight outputs or a combination of eight inputs and four outputs with individual output currents rated at an industry high 2A.
Space saving reverse-keyed 5-pole M12 signal connectors link the module to the Profibus network. Off-the-shelf 7/8" (mini) connectors supply power to the module.
These IP67 rated modules have diagnostic features from sensor overload protection to sensor short circuit.
The modules and their mating moulded cord sets are suited to decentralised I/O wiring in automotive, material handling, package distribution, semiconductor manufacturing and other high speed hostile environment applications.
