Turck CIP hybrid safety I/O module
Turck has announced the addition of the CIP hybrid safety I/O module to its range of fieldbus technology products.
The hybrid safety concept from Turck combines both safety I/O and general-purpose I/O in a single, rugged, on-machine, remote I/O device. The CIP Safety (TBIP) module expands the existing hybrid safety range, which already includes an option for PROFIsafe over Profinet.
Both IP67 hybrid modules can be adapted to the actual signal requirements of an installation through the use of configurable I/O points and by leveraging the flexibility of IO-Link. On the safety side, the hybrid modules offer two safety inputs for connecting safety sensors, such as light curtains or emergency stop buttons. Two additional safety channels can be used as either inputs or outputs. The general-purpose (non-safety-related) side includes four configurable discrete I/Os capable of switching up to 2 A when used as outputs. Two IO-Link master ports are also available, which offer an additional 32 points of configurable discrete I/O when used with Turck IO-Link hubs.
These devices can be used as remote safety I/O, or even operated as a standalone safety controller for local safe I/O, which allows the implementation of safety functions without the need for a safety PLC while still providing safety diagnostics and general-purpose I/O data to a higher level non-safety PLC.
The IP65/IP67/IP69K degrees of protection allow use in demanding environments. Decentralised plants and modular machine concepts can be implemented without the need for additional control cabinets.
