Siemens Industry Automation Division is launching new IP65/IP67 compact block IO modules with Profinet interfaces. The Simatic ET 200eco PN, with a fully sealed and rugged zinc die-cast housing, is available in several variants: with 8 or 16 digital inputs and with 8 or 16 digital outputs.
Inputs and outputs, power supply and communications networks are connected by means of industry standard M12 connectors. Simatic ET 200eco PN is designed for distributed installation direct at the machine and supports both Profinet star and line topologies within a system. Profinet makes module expansion flexible and enables specific tailoring to the automation task. In addition, users benefit from an integrated diagnostics concept, from Profinet down to the individual channel on the module.
