Minneapolis, MN—September 4, 2013—TURCK announces the BL67 on-machine modular I/O system for industrial Ethernet. Designed to provide flexible communication capabilities, the BL67 modular I/O system elevates a variety of I/O signals to common industrial Ethernet networks, including digital inputs, digital outputs, analog I/O and specialty I/O such as serial interfaces and RFID.
Featuring TURCK’s Multiprotocol technology, the BL67 offers an easy-to-deploy industrial Ethernet solution. The BL67 combines three Ethernet protocols—EtherNet/IP™, Modbus™ TCP and PROFINET®—in a single device, yet only allows one Ethernet master to control the outputs while the input and diagnostic data is available to the other protocols.
“The BL67 modular I/O system with Multiprotocol technology employs a unique operating system that provides unprecedented flexibility,” said Matt Boudjouk, Product Manager, TURCK. “Designed to simplify industrial Ethernet for Distributed I/O, this innovative technology offers all the latest feature sets, including quick-connect and DLR support for EtherNet/IP and fast start-up, LLDP, GSDML file configuration for PROFINET and linear topology support for all three supported industrial Ethernet protocols.”
