Beckhoff Intros EtherNet/IP Fieldbus Modules
Ethernet Fieldbus Box.
Minneapolis, MN — Beckhoff Automation has introduced the new IL230x-B905 Fieldbus Box modules for EtherNet/IP to provide EtherNet/IP I/O solutions for harsh environments. The modules include four 24VDC inputs and four outputs.

The fully-sealed and rugged Fieldbus Box product line is especially suitable for mounting on machines and anywhere moisture and dust resistant IP 67 I/O is needed outside of a cabinet. These robust fieldbus modules are equipped with 8, M8 or M12 signal connections.

With the addition of the new modules, EtherNet/IP users can now benefit from one of the most comprehensive IP 67 fieldbus product offerings available. The company's open Fieldbus Box I/O family supports three Industrial Ethernet variants: EtherCAT, Ethernet TCP/IP, and most recently, EtherNet/IP.

A standardized d-coded M12 socket connects other EtherNet/IP devices and the Fieldbus Box, forming a secure connection system that has been tried and tested in industry. Connection to the IP 67 Fieldbus box is achieved via coded cables and connectors, allowing easy installation and service in the field. Up to 120 Extension Box modules can be connected via the integrated IP-Link connection. In addition to digital input, output and combined boxes, analog and special signals are also available.
