As a new product of Kendrion Kuhnke's Ventura FIO series the yellow I/O terminal is operating via the safe EtherCAT-Protocol (FSOE) and can be integrated anywhere within this modular I/O system. The new Safety EtherCAT terminal Ventura FIO Safety I/O 4DI/2DO is a digital input and output module with four safe input channels and two safe output channels. The digital inputs connect to sensors with floating terminals. The failure-resistant outputs switch 24 V DC actors with a current of up to 2 A per channel. If the EtherCAT terminal detects a failure, it switches off automatically (fail stop). The Safety I/O conforms to the requirements of IEC 61508 SIL 3 and DIN EN ISO 13849 PL e. Besides this new safety module 4DI/2DO, a safety PLC and additional safety I/O modules will be included into the product portfolio of the company. On request, these modules are also available as custom-designed solutions tailored to a specific machine.
