Molex Incorporated showcased its new Brad HarshIO IP67 Compact Ethernet Modules at the2014 Industrial Automation North America (IANA) Global Automation and Manufacturing Summit, September 8 – 13, McCormick Place, Chicago, IL. The Brad HarshIO IP67 digital compact 30mm (M8 and M12 connector versions) modules for Ethernet were on display at Molex booth E-4915.

“Integrated Brad solutions deliver the advanced features and secure connections customers need for optimal machine performance and industrial automation,” states Eric Gory, global product manager, Molex. “Easily configurable, small form-factor HarshIO IP67 Compact Ethernet Modules ease the transition for machine builders from traditional PROFIBUS to a PROFINET industrial Ethernet fieldbus.”

Brad HarshIO IP67 Ethernet Modules are a reliable, machine-mountable solution for connecting industrial controllers to I/O devices in harsh-duty environments. Narrow 30mm housings are well-suited to compact machines where space is limited. The I/O channels can be individually configured as inputs or outputs with M8 or M12 connectors ideal for attaching sensing devices or actuators. This enables machine designers and installers to connect a digital signal and maintain a high density of I/O points using the minimum amount of space while eliminating wiring errors and provide faster installation times.

Featuring an IP67-rated housing to resist dust, liquid and vibration, on-machine mounting of the Brad HarshIO IP67 Compact Ethernet Module eliminates the need for a protective cabinet. The daisy-chain wiring topology and integrated 2-port switch with 100 Mbps full duplex data transmission enables an application to be wired entirely without switches at a lower cost. Supporting PROFINET ‘Simple Device Replacement’ the patented Ultra-Lock push-to-lock connection system allows fast, safe, operator independent IP67-sealed connection of cordsets.

“HarshIO compact Ethernet modules offer a smooth and easy transition to PROFINET connectivity for machine builders currently using PROFIBUS or DeviceNet compact modules. The advanced design features of the modules maximize your connectivity and cost-effectiveness,” adds Gory.
