Provides expandable architecture for EtherNet/IP and PROFINET controls applications and offers IP67 protection and industry standard connectors. Using standard 3-conductor cables, up to 4 slave devices can be connected to each master block, which communicates over the industrial Ethernet network to the controller.  Instead of a backplane, each I/O device is connected to an industry-standard M12 port, creating an IP67 connection.  With the ability to be installed within a 20-meter radius from the master device, slave devices can be easily distributed across the machine.
