New IO-Link input/output modules

New modules from ifm electronic offer 8 multifunctional input/output ports, each of which can be freely configured as a digital input or output

ifm is offering its new modules in two versions. In PerformanceLine versions, the new ifm ports can also be configured as analogue inputs. This means that the modules can be matched to the exact requirements of an application, eliminating the need to specify (for example) a separate analogue input module when only one analogue channel is needed in a particular location.

The new modules are available in both PerformanceLine and StandardLine versions that support the connection of an external auxiliary supply to power sensors, and as line-powered versions that derive power from the standard IO-Link connection, requiring no additional power source. Output capacity for the PerformanceLine versions is 2 A per channel, for the StandardLine versions it is 1.8 A per four channels, and for the line-powered version it is 1 A per eight channels.

The PerformanceLine and StandardLine modules, with auxiliary supply option, provide full isolation between the sensor and actuator supplies, which means that the actuators can be switched off while leaving the sensors powered. In addition, to provide maximum versatility, PerformanceLine types support both cyclical and acyclical operation allowing the port function to be changed dynamically as required.

The ifm configurable multiport IO-Link input/output modules are available in housings with IP ratings to suit most industrial environments. The PerformanceLine modules are best suited to applications where IP65, IP67 and resistance to coolants and oils is required. The StandardLine versions are available in versions to suit both industrial and washdown environments with protection ratings up to IP68/69K. All incorporate full short-circuit protection along with individual status indication for each channel and additional diagnostics available at the PLC.
