Wide range of applications in the cable duct: Self-configuring I/O modules for your material handling system

Do you want to be able to integrate inputs and outputs flexibly in your material handling system?  Then check out our new self-configuring I/O modules with a specially developed housing for the cable duct. They are available with 8 and 16 digital signals, which can be used bidirectionally as inputs or outputs. This allows many different applications to be realized in the cable duct with the same module – planning and spare parts management are simplified.


Alternative to IO-Link hubs and Ethernet I/O blocks

Both variants, now available for cable ducts, are also a great alternative to comparable Ethernet or IO-Link-based I/O solutions That's because thanks to AS-Interface, you save on wiring costs, while integrated connection cables simplify installation.


Fig.: The self-configuring I/O modules for the cable duct are the perfect addition to your material handling system. They are available with 16 I/Os (BWU4977) and 8 I/Os (BWU4979).

Advantages of the self-configuring I/O modules for the cable duct

  • Connection of sensors and actuators in any combination. Thanks to integrated cables, you can connect devices with up to 2 signals per M12 connection directly, easily and cost-effectively.
  • Our software provides the option of assigning a fixed configuration to the inputs and outputs.
  • Drastically reduced wiring complexity and great freedom in the choice of topology thanks to ASi.
  • 16 inputs/outputs with ASi-5 in 1.27 ms.
  • Channel-specific diagnostics enable a detailed overview – even with many inputs and outputs.
