Courtesy: TurckTurck’s TBPN safety block I/O module combines both standard and safety inputs/outputs in a single device. The IP67 hybrid modules can be adapted to the specific signal requirements in the machine. On the safety side of the Profinet/Profisafe module, the user has two safety inputs for connecting different safety sensors, such as light curtains or emergency-stop buttons. The module offers two channels of internal safety outputs that can be used to remove power to the universal discrete I/O ports and to one of the IO-Link ports on the standard side of the block. For the standard side of the Profinet/Profisafe module, four universal discrete I/O ports are available for connecting general purpose signals and can switch up to 2 amps. Two of these ports can also be configured as IO-Link masters. In combination with Turck’s I/O hubs, TBIL-M1-16DXP, users can connect up to 32 additional discrete I/O points to the module. Both the standard channels as well as an IO-Link channel of the TBPN can be disconnected for safety-related applications.
