The TBEN-S modules from Turck can be operated automatically in Profinet, Modbus TCP or EtherNet/IP thanks to the multiprotocol communication. Courtesy: TurckTurck's TBEN-S series of digital block-I/O modules are fully potted IP65-, IP67-, and IP69K-rated modules that measure 1.25 x 5.6-in. and allow assembly directly on the machine. They also have an extended temperature range from -40 to +70 C. Even with the new compact design every TBEN-S module can be operated automatically in Profinet, Modbus TCP, or EtherNet/IP because of the multiprotocol communication. The devices also recognize the used protocol automatically by listening to the communication during the start-up phase. An integrated switch allows the use of the devices in line topology.

The TBEN-S modules are available in five variants: four digital inputs and outputs, eight digital inputs with module diagnostics, eight digital inputs with channel diagnostics, eight digital outputs, and eight universal digital inputs and outputs. The outputs have a current of up to 2 A. Each output channel is continuously monitored by the integrated diagnostic system that records all events in the device's event log, which is designed to simplify troubleshooting and reduce downtime. The internal web server, which can be used to display diagnostics in plain text, also contributes to this.
