Safety I/O Features EtherNet/IP

May 8, 2008
The Allen‑Bradley CompactBlock Guard I/O on EtherNet/IP is billed as the industry’s first safety I/O module to feature EtherNet/IP connectivity. 

 This allows use of the EtherNet/IP protocol in conjunction with an Allen‑Bradley GuardLogix controller or other Safety PLCs that incorporate the CIP Safety protocol over EtherNet/IP. CompactBlock Guard I/O on EtherNet/IP is designed to detect failures at the I/O and field device level, while enhancing operator protection in applications including robotic, point-of-operation, guard-monitoring and remote control applications. It communicates over the EtherNet/IP network using the industry standard CIP Safety protocol, making it compatible with standard Ethernet infrastructure devices, including wired and wireless products.
