, Minneapolis, MN, now offers its BL67 line of modular I/O with Ethernet gateways, supplementing the DeviceNet, Profibus DP, and CANopen gateways that already exist. BL67 systems consist of a gateway, base modules, and electronic modules. The gateways are designed to coordinate the entire I/O data exchange with higher-level Ethernet fieldbus and provide diagnostic information for the control platform. I/O modules are configured independent of the fieldbus protocol and systems can support up to 32 electronic modules and 256 digital or 64 analog I/O modules. An M12 D-coded connector is used for fieldbus connection.
