Belden has a new I/O module in its Lumberg Automation range specifically for the decentralised Fieldbus system, LioN-Link.

The IP67 module has four digital M12 slots with a higher limit on the output voltage permitting 2A per line and 6A in total.

These outputs are designed for safety-related applications up to performance level D making this I/O module particularly suitable for failsafe control of actuators or – following a complete switch-off of the 24V output power supply – reliable emergency OFF functions.

Terminal equipment can be connected directly to the I/O module so there is no need for terminal boxes, which are comparatively expensive and complicated to install.

Depending on the selected LioN-Link bus coupler, this I/O module can be used in Profinet, Profibus, DeviceNet or CANopen networks.
