The BL20 Economy gateways from TURCK (Minneapolis, MN) provides a flexible in-the-cabinet system for distributed I/O with EtherNet/IP and Modbus TCP, and can be paired with a broad range of I/O slices to suit virtually any application. In addition, RFID can be incorporated into any distributed I/O product with the necessary RFID-S slices. Other features of the systems include:
- The ability to accommodate up to 32 I/O modules, resulting in a system that may contain up to 512 digital I/O points or 128 analog I/O points.
- An integrated power supply, which eliminates the need for an additional power module to feed the I/O bus.
- Compatibility with all TURCK Economy I/O slices, which are hot-swappable and available in either tension (spring) or screw bases.
