Phoenix Contact is promoting its recently launched Inline ECO terminal blocks that enhance the company's existing Inline I/O system. The 15 additional products are said to be very easy to use. Every terminal block has only one function, meaning configuration is no longer needed during start-up. This, in turn, reduces costs in this phase.
The ECO Safe terminal block provides for the reliable deactivation of adjacent digital output terminals approved for the safety-related segment circuit. Neither a secure controller nor special software is needed to implement this distributed safety system. Up to two twin-channel sensor circuits can be connected to a safety terminal. All status and error messages are forwarded to the standard controller.
Inline ECO terminal blocks can be combined with any Inline bus coupler or standard terminal block. Follow the link for more information about Inline ECO terminal blocks.
