Simplifying smart machines in harsh applications

08 June 2020

The new on-machine Allen-Bradley ArmorBlock I/O modules are able to operate in a wide range of temperatures and offer up to IP69K protection.

The new I/O options can be mounted anywhere on a machine for shorter cable runs and lower wiring costs. They use nickel-plated zinc die-cast housing, have QuickConnect functionality and offer diagnostics in an EtherNet/IP universal digital I/O block to reduce commissioning and troubleshooting times. 
Three IO-Link hub blocks help reduce design complexity by allowing more devices through the IO-Link master and an M12 L-coded power connector on selected blocks supports higher current, allowing more blocks to be daisy-chained, resulting in lower wiring and installation costs.
For companies with separate I/O blocks for digital input and output, the ArmorBlock I/O modules provide 16-channel self-configurable digital I/O with flexibility to be used as the digital input or output depending on the application needs.
