Safety Input/Output (I/O) Modules
Our Guard I/O™ safety products provide all the benefits of traditional distributed I/O for safety systems. They reduce wiring costs and start-up times for machines and components. Guard I/O blocks have a variety of features suitable for both in-cabinet and field-mounted applications. Contains the following products:
1. Compact 5000 I/O Modules
Our Bulletin 5069 Compact 5000™ I/O modules provide high-performance control in a compact design that extends the capabilities of the Logix platform. They are local I/O modules in a CompactLogix™ 5380, Compact GuardLogix® 5380, or CompactLogix 5480 system and provide safety options. These modules are an ideal distributed I/O solution for CompactLogix 5380, Compact GuardLogix® 5380, CompactLogix 5480, ControlLogix® 5580, and GuardLogix 5580 controllers with safety module restrictions on an EtherNet/IP network. They are ideal for applications with high processing requirements.
2. FLEX 5000 I/O Modules
Our FLEX 5000™ I/O modules are a reliable, flexible distributed I/O solution that lets you choose the I/O that fits your operational needs. FLEX 5000 I/O enhances communication with 1 Gb EtherNet/IP™ connectivity, providing higher speed and bandwidth. To increase the flexibility of the network architecture, these modules contain 2 copper ports or 2 optical ports (SFP) and support device-level ring, star, line and PRP topologies.
3. 1756 ControlLogix Module
Our Bulletin 1756 ControlLogix® chassis-based modules offer a comprehensive range of digital, diagnostic digital, analog, motion, special function I/O and compute modules to meet a variety of application needs. You can use any chassis-based module in the ControlLogix controller's local chassis, or a chassis-based module in a chassis connected to the ControlLogix controller through a ControlNet™ or EtherNet/IP™ network.
4. 1732 ArmorBlock Guard I/O Module
Our Bulletin 1732 ArmorBlock® Guard I/O™ modules provide safety systems with all the benefits of traditional distributed I/O. These modules are available in IP67-rated packaging for EtherNet/IP™ and can be installed directly on the machine.
5. 1791 CompactBlock Guard Safety I/O
Bulletin 1791DS and 1791ES CompactBlock™ Guard I/O™ modules provide the benefits of distributed I/O for safety systems. These modules can be used with safety controllers that communicate over DeviceNet™ or EtherNet/IP™ networks using CIP™ safety. CompactBlock Guard safety I/O is optimized for use with GuardPLC™, GuardLogix®, and SmartGuard™ controllers.
6. POINT Guard I/O Modules
POINT Guard I/O™ modules are safety I/O modules designed for installation into standard POINT I/O™ systems, providing automation and safety functions in a very dense I/O solution. POINT Guard I/O communicates over EtherNet/IP™ using the CIP™ safety protocol for GuardLogix® controllers and DeviceNet™ for SmartGuard™ 600 controllers.
