TBEN-A: Robust IP69K block I/O modules for the German automotive industry

AIDA Block I/O Modules

22/15 – Turck is adding modules with AIDA connection technology for the automotive industry to its TBEN multiprotocol series

Mülheim, October 20, 2015

Turck is showcasing at the SPS IPC Drives fair its block I/O modules with the AIDA connector system. The company is thus able to develop further applications for its robust I/O modules in the German automotive industry. The simple push-pull principle of the AIDA connectors guarantees the reliable connection of Ethernet and power supply cables without the need for a screw connection. The metal AIDA flange ensures the high mechanical resistance of IP67 and IP69K as well as the operating temperatures from -40 to +70 °C of the TBEN module.

Turck offers three module variants with AIDA connection technology: TBEN-A1-16DXP with 16 universal inputs or outputs, the variant -16DIP with 16 digital inputs and the variant -8DIP-8DOP with eight digital inputs and eight digital outputs. All modules of the TBEN series – including the variant with universal I/O (16DXP) – separate the I/O channels consistently into the electrically isolated potential groups “switchable I/O” and “non-switchable I/O”. The use of these highly flexible 16DXP device variants thus makes it possible to implement the safety shutdown of plant sections using emergency-stop circuits.

The media redundancy (MRP) and fast startup (FSU) functions required by AIDA for Profinet are integrated. All AIDA module types can also be operated on the Ethernet/IP or Modbus TCP Ethernet protocols as an alternative to Profinet. The TBEN-AIDA modules will be available from the beginning of 2016.
