Belden Australia introduces a new I/O module to its Lumberg Automation range, designed specifically for the decentralised Fieldbus system, LioN-Link.
Designed to fulfil protection class requirements IP67, the new I/O modules (0942 UEM 612) feature four digital M12 slots with a higher limit on the output voltage permitting 2A per line and 6A in total.
These outputs are designed for safety-related applications up to performance level D, making the new I/O modules particularly suitable for failsafe control of actuators or reliable emergency OFF functions following a complete switch-off of the 24V output power supply.
According to product manager Robert Strehmann, safety-related outputs can now be switched off directly in the field without the need for an additional terminal box.
Installing these modules saves users even more time and money, because they are wired up using only standard products, unlike comparable I/O systems.
Belden’s I/O modules allow cost-effective safety solutions to be implemented in mechanical engineering applications or in the assembly and handling sector.
The introduction of the new I/O modules by Belden further extends the application range of the decentralised fieldbus system LioN-Link from Lumberg Automation.
Key features of Belden’s new I/O modules:
- Terminal equipment can be connected directly to the I/O module
- Eliminates need for expensive terminal boxes, which are complicated to install
- Can be used in Profinet, Profibus, DeviceNet or CANopen networks depending on the selected LioN-Link bus coupler
- Fool-proof set up since LioN-Link systems do not use slave address assignments or require terminating resistors
- Sturdy housing measures 182.4mm L x 30mm W x 28.4mm H, weighing only 200g
- Operating temperature range of -10ºC to +60ºC
- High vibration and shock resistance
- Power supply configured for a voltage range of 19-30V DC
