Safety block I/O module
The TBPN safety block I/O module combines both standard and safety inputs/outputs in a single device and can be adapted to the specific signal requirements in the machine. This helps users to save valuable space and reduce overall system costs of their machines. The user has two safety inputs for connecting different safety sensors, such as light curtains or emergency-stop buttons. Two additional safety channels can be used either as safety inputs or outputs.The module offers two channels of internal safety outputs that can be used to remove power to the universal discrete I/O ports as well as to one of the IO-Link ports on the standard side of the block. Safety logic is created using the Turck safety configuration and diagnostics software tool; once programmed, device replacement is simplified by means of a removable memory chip housed under the protective window.
