Ethernet version of the Brad HarshIO compact 30 mm modules provide industrial fieldbus connectivity for PROFINET. The modules offer a cost-effective, IP67-rated, small form-factor for high-density machine I/O connections.
They are available in fixed and user configurable I/O versions where the PROFINET controller can configure (through a GSD file) each port as an Input, Output (up to 0.5 A) or Universal digital channel.
Featuring an IP67-rated housing, the modules protect against dust, liquid and vibration. Machine mounting saves on cabinet space and reduces wiring costs. An integrated two-port switch with 100 Mbps delivers full duplex data transmission and enables a daisy-chain wiring topology for additional cost-savings. The Ultra-Lock push-to-lock connection system ensures fast, safe IP67-sealed connection of cordsets for quick commissioning.
The flexible HarshIO 8-port design supports high density I/O points for attaching sensing devices, actuators or any single digital signal device in a compact space. Featuring built-in protection to help prevent short circuit and current overload, the configurable HarshIO modules come equipped with diagnostic LEDs for visual feedback on network, power and I/O status.
