Turck Inc. has announced its new Ethernet/IP piconet gateways, which are available with either eight M8 picofast or four M12 eurofast connectors, and provide four points of digital I/O.

The piconet gateway has two fiber-optic connectors to add modules and increase the number of I/O points on a single node. A new extension module is also available to provide an additional eight inputs and outputs, and the module?s terminal strips feature cage clamp technology for simple mounting inside a panel. Up to 255 extension modules may be connected to each gateway.

Turck has also improved its IP-Link fiber-optic communication system to allow up to 15m between modules. This innovation enables users to encircle an entire machine with I/O using a single node on the network.
