Introducing the first hybrid safety-standard I/O module

By Chemical Engineering |

The TBPN safety block I/O module (photo) is said to be the first module to combine both standard and safety inputs and outputs in a single device. The IP67 hybrid modules can be adapted flexibly to the specific signal requirement in the machine, helping to implement space-saving, less expensive machine wiring. On the safety side of the Profinet/Profisafe module, the user has two safety inputs for connecting different safety sensors, such as light curtains or emergency-stop buttons. Two additional safety channels can be used either as inputs or outputs. The four universal I/Os for connecting non-safety-related signals can switch up to 2 A. Two of the I/Os can also be connected as IO-Link masters. In combination with the company’s I/O hubs, users can connect up to 32 additional I/Os to the module in this way. — Hans Turck GmbH & Co.
