Eaton adds IP67 I/O modules to SmartWire-DT range
17 May 2015
Eaton has added a new IP67 I/O module to its SmartWire-DT wiring system, greatly extending the use of the system outside the control panel by allowing it to connect directly to sensors and actuators.
The new devices provide users with significantly simpler systems from design to assembly; the construction of new systems and the modification of existing machines can now be carried out with less cabling effort and with reduced use of materials.
With SmartWire-DT, up to 99 devices can be connected directly to the control system over a cable up to 600m long. The new module means that these devices can include sensors from mechanical position switches to high functionality inductive, capacitive and optoelectronic sensors.
As the IP67 I/O module has a standard M12 socket, it can also be used to connect all standard sensors and actuators with M12 plugs to the SmartWire-DT system. For sensors that have their own power supply, a power consumption measurement can be used to confirm that the sensor is properly connected, which simplifies and speeds system testing. The status of the module and its diagnostic messages can also be displayed from any connection point on the SmartWire-DT system.
The SmartWire-DT product range now includes options for connecting one, two or four sensors or actuators. The connectors can be fixed to any suitable surface using screws or alternatively clips are available to mount them on standard profile rail.
