Status LEDs are vital during setup, preventative maintenance, and unplanned downtime. Traditional LEDs often become unreadable in the harsh and crowded manufacturing environment, but Balluff's LEDs are big, bright, and easy to see.
Detailed Level of Diagnostics
Many diagnostic features including monitoring low voltage conditions on the auxiliary power connector, short circuit and overload status.
Powerful and Safe Outputs
Output current of up to 2 amps the output blocks are capable of driving almost any load. Each output incorporates low trip overload protection with LED indication and a latching feature for easy troubleshooting.
Innovative Housing Design
This fully potten housing survives being stepped on, hit, improperly mounted, covered with debris, and splashed with caustic liquids. Super low-profile helps keep cables tucked safely out of harm's way. Rounded corners offer highly visible locations for channel markers. Strong metal housing requires only two mounting points and is tolerant of over-tightening.
Local Storage of IP Address
Unique IP67 Address Plug (IPAP) stores the block’s IP address, subnet mask, and gateway address. The IPAP has the additional features of user defined LEDs (which can aide in troubleshooting) and has an attachement strap to fix the IPAP to the network cable.
Addressable Display (100 series only)
Backlit display shows IP address, subnet mask, and gateway address. Push buttons allow the setting of any octet of the above addresses. The display can be locked out via the controller.
User Defined LEDs (100 series only)
Similar to the IPAP, the display has the additional feature of red and green LEDs, which aid in troubleshooting.
