Our On-Machine™ Block (IP67/69K) Distributed I/O modules can be mounted directly on a machine rather than in a remote, central cabinet, which reduces wiring costs and provides easier maintenance. These products provide a complete assembly of sensor and actuator interface points, and each module includes a network adapter. Expansion blocks are available for some products. You can choose from analog, digital, and specialty I/O modules, as well as On-Machine I/O modules for safety systems.
Our Bulletin 1732D and 1732E ArmorBlock® I/O modules provide low-cost, hardened, I/O suitable for on-machine use. You can mount these modules on a machine close to the sensors and actuators to provide shorter cable runs for automotive, material handling, and high-speed packaging applications. These modules are available for DeviceNet™ and EtherNet/IP™ networks and are suitable for use in welding applications and end-of-arm robot applications.
Our Bulletin 1732 ArmorBlock® Guard I/O™ modules provide all the advantages of traditional distributed I/O for safety systems. These modules are available in an IP67-rated packaged for EtherNet/IP and are ready to mount directly on your machine.
