Push-pull IO modules with Profinet
Balluff’s push-pull variants of their Profinet IO-Link master modules are available with a fiber-optic cable or copper cable connection. The modules have the connection technology for fieldbus and power cables as well as a third variant that provides a fiber-optic (SCRJ) and a copper (RJ45) push-pull connection. That module can be used for converting from a copper to a fiber-optic cable right in the I/O module, without needing a additional, external converter module. The push-pull modules also have an integrated display for information and additional diagnostics as well as an integrated switch for setting up a Profinet line structure. All functions based on IO-Link specification 1.1 are made available by the eight integrated IO-Link ports. The user is provided with a real-time display of the module with all current statuses for extended diagnostics through an integrated web server.
