Turck Australia announces the BL67 on-machine modular I/O system for industrial Ethernet.
Featuring TURCK’s Multiprotocol technology, the BL67 offers an easy-to-deploy industrial Ethernet solution. Designed to provide flexible communication capabilities, the BL67 modular I/O system elevates a variety of I/O signals to common industrial Ethernet networks, including digital inputs, digital outputs, analogue I/O and speciality I/O such as serial interfaces and RFID.
Combining three Ethernet protocols - EtherNet/IP, Modbus TCP and PROFINET - in a single device, the BL67 allows only one Ethernet master to control the outputs while the input and diagnostic data is available to the other protocols.
Matt Boudjouk, Product Manager, TURCK explains the BL67 modular IO system with Multiprotocol technology employs a unique operating system that provides unprecedented flexibility, and is designed to simplify industrial Ethernet for distributed I/O. He adds that the innovative technology offers all the latest feature sets, including quick-connect and DLR support for EtherNet/IP and fast start-up, LLDP, GSDML file configuration for PROFINET and linear topology support for all three supported industrial Ethernet protocols.
TURCK's extensive line of products includes advanced sensors, measurement, instrumentation, connectivity, interface and networks for factory and process markets.
