The 32 mm slim TBEN-S modules from TURCK can be operated automatically in PROFINET, Modbus TCP or EtherNet/IP thanks to the multiprotocol communication
TURCK presents the first ultra-compact, digital block-I/O modules of the new TBEN-S (Small) series. The fully potted IP65-, IP67-, and IP69K-rated modules are only 1.25” x 5.6” and allow assembly directly on the machine. With their extended temperature range from -40 °C to +70 °C degrees, the devices are highly versatile. Even with the new compact design every TBEN-S module can be operated without additional gateways in each of the three Ethernet systems: PROFINET®, Modbus TCP ™or EtherNet/IP™. Additionally, thanks to TURCK’s multiprotocol technology, the devices recognize the used protocol automatically by listening to the communication during the start-up phase. An integrated switch allows the use of the devices in line topology.
