Belden has extended its Lumberg Automation product program in the EMEA region to include three new I/O modules featuring industrial protection class IP67. They provide secure connection between actuators/sensors and control units even under the harshest environmental conditions. Providing additional support for real-time (RT) and isochronous real-time (IRT) communication, the modules offer 16 digital channels configured as inputs, outputs or a combination of both.

All versions come with an encapsulated metal housing, vibration-resistant M12 connection technology, and short-circuit proof outputs. Galvanic separation between the I/O channels and the LAN connection ensures reliable data transmission. The behavior of output channels in the event of a fault can be defined via a fail-safe function. What's more, the easy diagnostics concept allows faults to be located swiftly. An integrated dual-port switch (10/100 Mbit/s) allows both line and ring topologies.

With an operating temperature range of -10 to 60°C, the I/O modules measure 261.4 x 59.6 x 17.6 mm (length x breadth x height). The power supply, which is connected via two four-pole 7/8" slots, has a rated voltage of 24V and a voltage range of 19 to 30V. The rated output current rating goes up to 1.6 A per channel with a maximum total current capacity of 9 A.

Both LAN ports are equipped with four-pole M12 connectors with D coding. The 16 I/O sockets, each of which can send and/or receive two digital signals, have five-pole A-coded M12 connectors. To prevent confusion, both the I/O connectors and the network ports are color-coded.

The IP address for the modules is set up via the BOOTP or DHCP protocol. The controller user interfaces can be used for direct configuration of the modules. The optimum arrangement of the I/O slots makes them easy to use, even with T distributors.
