Distributed I/O

TURCK 7/23/2018

The TURCK Distributed I/O Sales Guide endeavors to provide a high level overview of TURCK’s Distributed I/O, RFID and network accessories & wiring products. You will find thousands of products to suit our customers’ needs including on-machine, in-cabinet, modular and block I/O offerings. In an effort to make this guide easy to use some of TURCK's mature products have been omitted for brevity. Additionally, due to an ever-changing market and TURCK's commitment to provide the most technologically advanced solutions for our customers it is possible that new products may exist that have not been incorporated into this printing.

As mentioned, this guide is meant to provide a high level overview of Turck’s Distributed I/O products, giving our customers a solid foundation from which to build on. A review of the table of contents will direct you to the firs level of product grouping (i.e. In-Cabinet Modular I/O, On-Machine Block I/O, RFID, etc.). From there each section begins with a brief overview of the product grouping complete with part number keys. Within the sections you will find part selection tables complete with high level product specific tions, housing overview and part numbers. Given the dynamic nature of our Distributed I/O product line, individual specifications can change faster than a print guide, therefore the latest detailed product specific tions and system design constraints are reserved for information contained on our public website.

TURCK Distributed I/O

TURCK provides a complete line of distributed I/O products for every fieldbus protocol including modular and block I/O systems, in-cabinet and on-machine I/O, decentralized intelligence with programmable systems conforming to IEC 61131, or innovative technologies, like RFID.

TURCK’s distributed I/O products provide a variety of configurations to suit individual application needs. All platforms provide the ability to reduce time and costs during a project’s planning, installation, commissioning, and operation phases.

TURCK’s modular I/O systems, such as the BL20 and BL67, provide a high degree of flexibility to varying types of applications. BL20 terminal-wired, in-cabinet I/O systems include flexible gateway options in a variety of fieldbus protocols, decentralized control/programmability via CoDeSys, an IEC 61131-3 programming software and the ability to integrate motor starters. BL67 combines all of the flexibility of an in-the-cabinet I/O system with modularity, ruggedness, and connectorization. Both BL families support TURCK’s BL ident RFID system.

TURCK’s block I/O solutions include the BL compact and rugged Advanced I/O module (AIM) stations. These distributed I/O stations are capable of providing a wide variety of I/O signals, such as digital/discrete, analog, temperature, counter, RS485, RS232, and SSI inputs, as well as RFID capabilities, in a wide range of network protocols.

INNOVATIVE MANUFACTURING CAPABILITIES

TURCK Distributed I/O

The array of applications where TURCK products are used is as extensive as the markets where they are applied.

DISTRIBUTED CONTROL

TURCK products can be programmed with CoDeSys software to create independent distributed control architectures using gateways with integrated subnet capabilities.

ETHERNET

TURCK’s products offer Ethernet solutions where I/O connects directly or indirectly to Ethernet. Indirect Ethernet gives you the ability to expand the amount of I/O per station with subnet capabilities. TURCK’s subnet is self-configu ing and offers a seamless transition to the Ethernet layer because the I/O process data is presented as standard Ethernet I/O. TURCK also offers a variety of Ethernet topology options including line topology made possible by Ethernet switches built into our Ethernet products. TURCK also offers innovative solutions that conform to the Common Industrial Protocol (CIP) standards for Quick-Connect.

RFID - BL ident

RFID solutions for ISO 15693 – HF 13.56 Mhz and EPC Global Gen2 900 Mhz. We have block and modular I/O solutions available for IP20, IP67 and IP68/69K. BL ident is available for all of the popular networks including Ethernet, PROFIBUS, DeviceNet and CANopen. We offer standalone control with programmable gateways and the ability to read or write multiple RFID channels available in a single solution. We also offer the ability to integrate RFID with other types of inputs and outputs.

HARSH ENVIRONMENTS

TURCK products have some of the highest tolerances to environmental extremes on the market. Block I/O products are rated from -40°C to 70°C and are protected up to IP69K. These parts are able to withstand the spraying, cleaning and humid or moist environments often found in food and beverage applications.

In-Cabinet Modular I/O

In-cabinet (IP20) modular I/0 is a cost-efficient networking solution that is used in an enclosure and designed to replace terminal blocks with intelligent I/0. Providing flexible communication capabilities, TURCK in-cabinet modular I/0 allows operators to mix and match I/0 interfaces and adapters, including digital inputs, digital outputs, analog I/0 and RFID. For enhanced performance, in-cabinet modular I/0 offers significant space savings with up to 32 I/0 on a single card. Modules are ideal for applications with large quantities of I/0, including packaging, conveying and general manufacturing.

BL20 System

The BL20 system is an IP20 Modular I/0 system designed for remotely collecting I/0 signals. In comparison to costly and time-consuming historic approaches that brought I/0 signals back to a single large cabinet, BL20 uses multiple small cabinets placed near the I/0 that they control— providing a flexible, modular solution that saves time and money.

Providing enhanced communication flexibility, the BL20 seamlessly mixes and matches I/0 types, communication networks, connection technologies and package styles to meet any project needs.
