MODULE COMBINES STANDARD AND SAFETY I/O IN ONE UNIT

Turk has recently introduced the TBPM safety block I/O module as the first I/O module to combine both standard and safety inputs/outputs in a single device. The IP67 hybrid is adaptable to specific signal requirements, ultimately helping users save space and reduce costs.

On the device the user has two safety inputs for connecting different safety sensors, such as light curtains or emergency-stop buttons, and offers two channels of internal safety outputs that can be used to remove power to the universal discrete I/O ports as well as to one of the IO-Link ports on the standard side of the block.

The safety logic is created using Turck’s safety configuration and diagnostics software tool; once programmed and setup, the device replacement is made simple by means of a removable memory chip under the protective window.

On the normal side of the Profinet/Profisafe module there are four universal discrete I/O ports, that can be connected for general purpose signal, and can be switch up to 2A. Two of the ports can be configured as IO-Link masters.

“Integrating or embedding safety functions into existing fieldbus systems is a growing trend in automation. With Turck’s new hybrid safety I/O modules, users can gain this combined functionality in one block. This simplifies installation and maximises flexibility, without compromising the level of safety and reliability expected,” said Dan Klein, product manager for Turck’s Fieldbus Technology division.

Both the channels of the TBPN can be disconnected for safety-related applications, simplifying the wiring.

Turck has developed the robust safety module for an extended temperature range from -40 to +70°C. The IP65/IP67/IP69K protection types allow use in the most demanding environments.
