Compact IP65/67-rated IO system for more applications

04 November 2015

Siemens has expanded its range of compact Simatic ET 200AL IP65/67-rated IO systems to include modules with the M12 connection system, higher output currents, and longer maximum distances between modules. 

Analogue and digital actuators, and sensors, such as IO-Link devices, can be connected to the new M12 modules, which have up to 16 digital inputs. The high channel density reduces the wiring effort and the space requirement for higher quantity structures. As the output current has been doubled, actuators with a current consumption of up to 2 amperes can be connected. The maximum distance between two modules has now been increased from 10 to 15m, which makes the Simatic ET 200AL IO system suitable for widely distributed IOs in large machines and systems. 

Groups of actuators can now be safely shutdown according to SIL2 via the ET 200AL outputs.
