Panel Builder US

December 30, 2019

Manufacturers can now realize the design and productivity benefits of On-Machine I/O modules on smart machines used in harsh applications. The new Allen-Bradley ArmorBlock I/O modules can operate in a wide range of temperatures and offer up to IP69K protection in applications like automotive, material handling, packaging and welding.

The new ArmorBlock I/O options can be mounted anywhere on a machine for shorter cable runs and lower wiring costs. They use nickel-plated zinc die-cast housing, have QuickConnect functionality and offer diagnostics in an EtherNet/IP universal digital I/O block to reduce commissioning and troubleshooting times.

Three IO-Link hub blocks help reduce design complexity by allowing more devices through the IO-Link master. And an M12 L-coded power connector on selected blocks supports higher current, allowing more blocks to be daisy-chained and resulting in lower wiring and installation costs.

For companies with separate I/O blocks for digital input and output, the ArmorBlock I/O modules are an ideal choice. They provide 16-channel self-configurable digital I/O with flexibility to be used as the digital input or output depending on the application needs.

New Features

  • Operates in -20…70° C (-4…158° F) temperatures
  • Offers IP65, IP67 and IP69K protection for harsh operating environments (varies by modules)
  • Provides diagnostics to enable users to reduce time spent on commissioning and troubleshooting
  • Offers EtherNet/IP connectivity with 16 universal digital input and output and option of M12 L-coded and 5-pins 7/8” auxiliary power connectors
  • Offers three options for users to optimize IO-Link hubs design: 16 digital input, 10 digital input and 6 digital output, and 16 universal digital input and output
  • Allows more field devices to be connected with M12 L-coded power connector for IO-Link Hub and EtherNet/IP modules
