Today’s trend is all about machines working smart with better connectivity and improved productivity, even so in harsh applications. The ArmorBlock® EtherNet/IP™ I/O and IO-Link blocks built-in nickel-plated zinc die-cast housing works well in harsh operating temperatures -20…+70° C (-4…+158° F) to achieve that goal. Users can mount these modules on a machine close to the sensors and actuators to provide shorter cable runs for automotive, material handling, packaging and welding applications. The modular design provides optimization and allows more field devices to be connected to machine applications. With enhanced diagnostics, users can improve uptime and reduce time spent on commissioning and troubleshooting.

Key Takeaways:

  • Reducing design time with flexibility offered by ArmorBlock® IO-Link I/O and EtherNet/IP™ I/O blocks
  • Get access to real-time performance data to improve uptime and increase productivity
  • Reducing wiring costs while increasing more field device connections
