Ethernet Modules Deliver Industrial I/O

The Brad HarshIO Ethernet I/O Modules with QuickConnect (QC) and Fast Start-Up (FSU) technologies promise the reliable connection of industrial controllers to I/O devices in harsh environments where liquids or vibrations may be present. The modules have been successfully tested with Rockwell controllers conforming to EtherNet/IP Quick Connect Class A and Siemens controllers conforming to PROFINET Fast Start-Up requirements. QC and FSU technologies enable the module to start and operate in less than 500 ms. Additionally, the modules support safety automation architectures using separate power supplies to power the inputs (sensors) and the outputs (actuators).  Their power connectors include separate grounding isolation between the input/logic ground and the output ground.
