Turck BL Compact stainless steel I/O solution

Monday, 11 March, 2013 | Supplied by: Turck Australia Pty Ltd



Turck has expanded its I/O solution offering with a stainless steel version of its BL Compact. Stainless steel replaces the exposed metal on BL Compact components, including the receptacle housing, ground plate and window screw.

Providing greater resistance to corrosion and other environmental contaminants than standard nickel-brass variations, stainless steel can enhance operation and extend product longevity.

The BL Compact system collects a variety of signals in a single, rugged node on a network. Rather than routing all signals through a control cabinet, this device makes it possible to obtain analog, digital, thermocouple, RTD, serial, RFID or a mixture of signal types in a compact, on-the-machine device over EtherNet/IP, DeviceNet, CANopen and PROFIBUS-DP.

Up to two signal types can be combined in any combination in the BL Compact system, including RFID and analog, digital and serial. To extend application flexibility, up to 16 devices may be added to an existing network and signals may be gathered on the machine without an enclosure. This reduces the time it takes to run wires for each device back to the control cabinet and the potential for wiring errors.

The IP67- and 69K-rated BL Compact system is available with four, eight or 16 ports. M8 or M12 connectors for bus communication and auxiliary power facilitate installation into any application, existing or new.

According to Turck, the stainless steel option enhances the product’s versatility by allowing it to be used in virtually any industrial or process automation application.
