Plastic and metal housing variants are available. The IP 67 compliant I/O family works on Ethercat, Ethernet/IP, Modbus/TCP, Profinet, Sercos, and Profibus networks. I/O functionality includes digital functions and an I/O link master for each network.
There are five different I/O link/analogue converters for analogue functions - AI/I, AO/U, AO/I, AO/U, and RTD - in two different housing types, straight and angled. The product line includes a total of 70 items that are being introduced to market. The Axioline E series is distinguished by its rapid installation with the Speedcon quick-locking system. It is robust thanks to its vibration resistance up to 5 g and shock resistance up to 30 g, and easy to operate due to its different coloured connections and clear signalling.
The new M12 power connections, with a current-carrying capacity of 2 x 12 A, ensures particularly efficient power supply to the devices. This reduces cabling costs because only one cable is required per device.
