Equipped with 8 safe input channels and 4 safe output channels and a minimum X2X cycle time of 200Âµs, the IP67-protected X67 Safety module is well-suited for decentralized applications. Onboard functions such as filtering, two-channel evaluation, and internal and external tests are similar to the functions in the existing X20SI and X20SO products.In addition, the X67 SafeIO module features seamless integration in the Automation Studio programming and diagnostics tool. The channels are connected using virtual wiring in Automation Studio's safe editor. Communication via Powerlink guarantees that process data is exchanged in a secure manner, and makes it possible to automatically set module parameters during maintenance. Because of the special IP67 characteristics, these modules can be mounted anywhere on a machine, without beingtied to the switching cabinet.
