With the TBPN poses Turck the first Safety block I / O module that combines standard and safe I / O in one device. The IP67 hybrid modules can be flexibly adapted to the specific signal requirements in the machine. This allows machines to be space-saving and cost-efficient wired. The protection classes IP65 / IP67 / IP69K allow use in the most demanding environments.
On the safety side of the Profinet / Profisafe module, the user will find two safe inputs for connecting different safety sensors, such as light grids or emergency stop buttons. It can use two additional safe channels as input or output. The four universal inputs / outputs for connecting non-safety-related signals can each switch up to 2 A. Two of the I / Os can also be used as IO-Link-Master configure. In combination with I / O hubs, the user can additionally connect up to 32 I / Os to the module in this way.
Both the standard channels and an IO-Link channel of the TBPN can be shut down internally in a safety-related manner, which considerably simplifies the wiring and wiring of auxiliary drives and valve terminals. The robust safety module withstands an extended temperature range from -40 ° to + 70 ° C.
Outlook for 2016: In the future, "the" Safety Net of Things "should be able to exchange data through cross-communication and thus enable a secure exchange of safety signal states between the decentralized modules.
