Interface device family expanded for non-intrinsically safe signals

By Gerald Ondrey |

Hans Turck

The IM12 interface devices now allow for the first time the benefits of this company’s IMX12 series to also be available for non-intrinsically safe signals (photo). The IM12 devices are some of the slimmest on the market, and with a width of only 6 mm per channel, save space in the control cabinet. Their modern electronic design provides a high degree of investment security. The entire device series is certified for use in functional safety circuits up to SIL2. The IM12 devices process digital and analog signals from field devices, such as in the pharmaceutical industry or chemical industry. However, the IM12 devices also find suitable uses in factory automation, such as for temperature and speed measuring. Parameterizable variables can be accessed via IO-Link and Pactware or other FDT frameworks. — Hans Turck GmbH & Co. KG, Mülheim an der Ruhr, Germany
