The Allen-Bradley CompactBlock Guard I/O on EtherNet/IP detects failures at the I/O and field-device level while enhancing operator protection in many applications including robotic, point-of-operation, guard-monitoring and remote control applications. It communicates over the EtherNet/IP network using CIP Safety protocol, making it compatible with Ethernet infrastructure devices including wired and wireless products. Manufacturing and process users can control and monitor the equipment’s safety devices using the same data network for general automation control and factory-floor business systems.
