Decentralized I/O solutions for the Ex area

By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey |

This company has approved its IP67 block input/output (I/O) modules (photo) for the TBEN-S and TBEN-L versions for use in Zone 2 areas. The company is said to be the first supplier to enable cabinet-free decentralized automation solutions with ATEX and IEC Ex approval, which can considerably reduce required mechanical labor, wiring and commissioning times. In conjunction with the devices of the IP67-rated IMC interface series, it is possible to implement the cabinet-free connection of intrinsically safe signals from Zone 0 or 1. Users can also implement cabinet-free safety, RFID, IO-Link, controller or cloud solutions directly in Zone 2, since virtually the entire IIoT ecosystem is offered in these designs. Users must also install the TBSG-L, TBSG-S or IMC-SG protective housings when implementing the I/O solutions in Zone 2. — Hans Turck GmbH & Co. KG, Mülheim an der Ruhr, Germany
