To provide EtherNet/IP I/O solutions for harsh environments, Beckhoff Automation has announced the new IL230x-B905 Fieldbus Box modules for EtherNet/IP. According to the company, after successfully implementing EtherNet/IP in the in-cabinet IP20 I/O world with the award-winning BK9105 Bus Coupler, Beckhoff now also offers a product for more severe operating conditions via the IL230x-B905 modules. The modules include four 24 V dc inputs and four outputs.

Beckhoff says its fully-sealed and ruggedized Fieldbus Box product line is ideal for mounting on machines and anywhere moisture and dust resistant IP67 I/O module is needed outside of a cabinet. They are equipped withØ8, M8 or M12 signal connections.

A standardized d-coded M12 socket connects other EtherNet/IP devices and the Fieldbus Box, forming a secure connection system that has been tried and tested in industry. Connecton to the IP67 Fieldbus box is achieved via coded cables and connectors, allowing easy installation and service in the field. Up to 120 Extension Box modules can be connected via the integrated IP-Link connection. In addition to digital input, output and combined boxes, analog and special signals are also available.
