IO-Link Master Block Insulates Against Noise, Protects in Harsh Environments

Balluff's new EtherNet/IP IO-Link master block insulates against inductive, conductive, and capacitive noise produced by electromagnetic interference (EMI), and its robust housing protects against harsh welding environments.

IO-Link Master Block Insulates Against Noise, Protects in Harsh Environments

The unit reduces inductive noise using coil choke filters; reduces conductive noise with its fiberglass-reinforced, polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) housing; and reduces capacitive noise with its thick profile, which raises the printed circuit board away from the backplane. The nonconductive PPS housing does the work of a separate grounding plate, and PPS is also inherently non-stick, so weld spatter slides off. The master block’s built-in display allows configuring of network parameters, and its embedded web server allows for remotely configuring the block and connected IO-Link devices. It offers four Class A IO-Link ports and four Class B IO-Link ports, with up to 9 A of output power with 2 A per channel.
