Four-port advanced I/O module station for industrial networking and connectivity requirements
Turck Australia introduces the new IP67-rated FAS8 Advanced I/O Module (AIM) station, the latest addition to the company’s line of AIM stations for AS-interface (AS-i) networks.
The I/O module station provides users with an eight-port AIM station model. It includes one digital PNP I/O signal per port, with an option for 2 Amp outputs.
It is designed to meet the latest AS-I V3.0 specification, allowing for increased communication options for analog data and detailed diagnostic information.
It features PNP short-circuit protected outputs which automatically restricts current to prevent failures in the event of a sensor malfunction.
To accommodate current connection trends, the module supports AS-I standard flat cable and round cable.
According to the company, it is ideal for indoor and outdoor applications as it is fully encapsulated and potted, which is designed to seal it against environmental contaminants.
