June 28, 2019 —Balluff is introducing four second-generation, single channel analog-to-IO-Link interface modules used to convert a variety of analog input data such as current, voltage, and RTD/thermocouple measurement to digital equivalent values. And having IO-Link onboard enhances diagnostic information available. The new modules are:
- BNI00C9 - Analog input conversion of input data like current, voltage and RTDs
- BNI00C7 - Analog input for temperature measurement sensors, Type J, Type K, or RTDs
- BNI00C8 - Analog output module with voltage or current output configurations
- BNI00C6 - Universal analog module, configure as either an analog input or analog output.
These modules work to simplify installations by eliminating analog in-chassis interface boards and reducing additional analog network blocks. IO-Link lets users replace lengthy shielded cable runs with basic unshielded cables.
