It communicates on DeviceNet using the CIP Safety protocol and is optimized to work with Guard PLC, GuardLogix, and SmartGuard controllers.
As a proven technology, ArmorBlock Guard I/O detects failures at the I/O and field device level, while helping to improve operator protection. ArmorBlock Guard I/O consists of block I/O modules that include the communications adapter and either eight or 16 points of safety I/O in a single package. ArmorBlock Guard I/O on DeviceNet is available in both IP20 (cabinet mount) and IP67 (on-machine) form factors, and Guard I/O modules on EtherNet/IP are available in IP20 form factors.
ArmorBlock Guard I/O can be easily mounted on the machine, close to sensors and actuators, helping to reduce wiring time and startup costs by eliminating electrical boxes and simplifying cable installation. Use ArmorBlock Guard I/O with industrial equipment, robotic, point-of operation, guard-monitoring and all remote control applications.
