New I/O module for safety applications

Belden has brought out a new I/O module in its Lumberg Automation™ range specifically for the decentralized Fieldbus system LioN-Link. The module (0942 UEM 612) fulfills protection class requirements IP67 and has four digital M12 slots with a higher limit on the output voltage permitting 2A per line and 6A in total. These outputs are designed for safety-related applications up to performance level D (as defined in the new Machinery Directive) making this I/O module particularly suitable for failsafe control of actuators or – following a complete switch-off of the 24V output power supply – reliable emergency OFF functions. Your terminal equipment can be connected directly to the I/O module, so there is no need for terminal boxes, which are comparatively expensive and complicated to install. This makes it possible to implement cost-effective safety solutions that can be used, for example, in mechanical engineering applications or in the assembly and handling sector.
