Turck introduces TBEN-L Ethernet spanner

June 16, 2016 – Turck introduces the TBEN-L Ethernet spanner, which provides customers with a protocol converter solution for applications dealing with multiple protocols on the same network.

The TBEN-L Ethernet spanner capitalizes on Turck’s multiprotocol technology and serves as a way to link multiple Ethernet networks together - even networks that speak different protocols. Its master to master data exchange allows PLCs to exchange data.

By utilizing Turck’s multiprotocol Ethernet technology and the embedded Ethernet switch, the device can allow isolated networks to pass data between them (up to 256 bytes), even if the networks are on different Ethernet subnets or using different protocols such as Modbus TCP, PROFINET or EtherNet/IP. Additionally, by utilizing the isolated Ethernet network, the TBEN Ethernet spanner offers the ability to setup a NAT (Network Address Translation) router for up to 5 IP addresses. The devices also include an embedded webserver for a streamlined setup and configuration process.

The TBEN-L spanner offers 16 digital inputs that are available to both networks and allows data transfer speeds of up to 100 megabits per second. Additionally, the spanner comes in a glass-fiber reinforced housing with fully potted electronics and offers a IP65, IP67, or IP69K rated housing.
