Molex's compact 30mm digital HarshIO modules deliver IP67-rated on-machine Ethernet connectivity between I/Os and control systems using a Profinet fieldbus. Courtesy: MolexMolex's Brad HarshIO compact 30 mm modules are designed to provide industrial fieldbus connectivity for Profinet. The HarshIO modules are IP67-rated, and have small form-factor for high-density machine I/O connections. The Brad HarshIO Ethernet Compact modules are available in fixed and user configurable I/O versions where the Profinet controller can configure (via GSD file) each port as an Input, Output (up to 0.5A) or Universal digital channel. 

Featuring an IP67-rated housing, Brad HarshIO modules provide protection against dust, liquid and vibration. Machine mounting saves on cabinet space and reduces wiring costs in the field. An integrated two-port switch with 100Mbps delivers full duplex data transmission and enables a daisy-chain wiring topology for additional cost-savings. The Molex patented Ultra-Lock push-to-lock connection system ensures fast, safe IP67-sealed connection of cordsets for quick commissioning. 

The flexible HarshIO 8-port design supports high density I/O points for attaching sensing devices, actuators or any single digital signal device in a compact space.  Featuring built-in protection to help prevent short circuit and current overload, the configurable HarshIO modules come equipped with diagnostic LEDs for visual feedback on network, power and I/O status.
