Suitable for harsh applications, ArmorBlock® EtherNet/IP™ I/O blocks in nickel plated zinc die-cast housing are the latest additions to the ArmorBlock I/O portfolio following the release of IO-Link hubs. The modules are rated IP65, IP67 or IP69K for harsh operating environment between -20…+70° C (-4…+158° F). For quick installation and enhanced EtherNet/IP connectivity, the blocks are available as 16-channel universal digital I/O catalogs with M12 L-coded and 5-pins 7/8” auxiliary power connectors. Application design is optimized because of the flexibility to allow more field device connection via the M12 L-coded power connector. Users can enjoy the convenience of easy troubleshooting and reduced commissioning time with the availability of diagnostics from the modules.
