Solid state I/O system

ROCKWELL Automation has enhanced its Point I/O line-up with the addition of the new Allen-Bradley Point Guard I/O modules.

This modular 24Vdc I/O system is designed to fit into the standard Point I/O system, offering both automation and safety functionality in a maximum density I/O solution.

The I/O employs CIP safety communications functionality, enabling simultaneous transmission of safety, control and diagnostic data using EtherNet/IP and DeviceNet protocols over one CIP network.

According to the company, the I/O offers unprecedented levels of functionality and flexibility, and is suited to safety applications up to SIL3 and Cat4.

The I/O is DIN-rail mountable and features eight inputs, eight solid-state outputs–rated at 1A each–and four test pulse sources.
