Block I/O devices with IP65/67 protection

By Chemical Engineering |

Siemens

This company has launched a new generation of machine-level block I/O devices with the Simatic ET 200eco PN (photo). The new I/O family features IP65/67 degree of protection and includes five digital I/O devices, as well as an IO-Link master device, offering users a wide range of new functions. In their new industrial metal enclosure, the devices are reliably protected from ultraviolet (UV) radiation and harmful substances, even under adverse environmental conditions, making it possible to use the devices outside of factory buildings. The devices are supplied with power via an L-coded plug, resulting in a considerably higher current-carrying capacity. In turn, this enables longer cable routes in the field, and the supply and connection of more energy-intensive components (such as valve terminals) without the need for more supply cables. — Siemens AG, Munich, Germany
