Ethernet Gateway for On-Machine, Modular I/O Applications
The BL67 Ethernet gateway for Ethernet/IP and Modbus TCP/IP is suitable for use in environments where conditions may not be conducive to traditional I/O.
The unit satisfies applications requiring digital or analog inputs and outputs, specialty I/O such as SSI and RFID, and serial inputs to Industrial Ethernet networks. The gateway combines multiple Ethernet protocols in a single device, yet allows only one Ethernet master to control the outputs while the input and diagnostic data is available to the other protocols. It offers isolated power for 16 inputs and 16 outputs, in addition to 16 I/O configurations for flexible application requirements. An integrated Ethernet switch allows a line topology between multiple gateways without using an external switch, eliminating the need for additional cable runs to the PLC. Models are available with IP67 housings.
