The IOLB-8018 is an 8 Point I/O Block with M12 connectors and Digital Input

Part Number: 99647-7

  • 8 point Digital Input IO-Link Block (Class A)
  • 8 – M12 connectors
  • Input voltage or current
  • IP65/66/67
  • Parameterization using IO-Link for easy installation and configuration
  • Data Storage capable for easy device replacement
  • IODD files

The IOLB-8018 is an IO-Link Block (Class A) with Digital Inputs that acquires binary control signals from the process level, and then transfers them (electrically isolated) to the controller. The status of the signal is displayed by LEDs and the signal connection is made through M8 connectors. The sensors are supplied from US1, which is derived from L+.

The small IOLB-8018 form factor (H126 x W30 x D26.5 mm) means that they are suitable for use where space is at a premium. The small mass of the IOLB-8018 module facilitates applications with mobile I/O interface, for example, a robot arm.

The robust design of the IOLB-8018 module enables them to be used directly at the machine. Control cabinets and terminal boxes are now no longer required. The module is fully sealed and therefore ideally prepared for wet, dirty or dusty conditions (IP67).

Pre-assembled cables significantly simplify IO-Link and signal wiring. Very few wiring errors are made, so that commissioning is optimized. In addition to pre-assembled IO-Link, power and sensor cables, field-configurable connectors and cables are available for maximum flexibility. Sensors and actuators are connected through M12 connectors.
