Stainless steel replaces the exposed metal on BL Compact components, including the receptacle housing, ground plate and window screw. Providing greater resistance to corrosion and other environmental contaminants than standard nickel-brass variations, stainless steel enhances operation and extends product longevity.

The TURCK BL Compact system collects a variety of signals in a single, rugged node on a network. Rather than routing all signals through a control cabinet, this device makes it possible to obtain analog, digital, thermocouple, RTD, serial, RFID or a mixture of signal types in a compact, on-the-machine device over Ethernet IP, DeviceNet™, CANopen and PROFIBUS-DP®.

Up to two signal types can be combined in any combination in the BL Compact system, including RFID and analog, digital and serial. To extend application flexibility, up to 16 devices may be added to an existing network and signals may be gathered on the machine without an enclosure. This reduces the time it takes to run wires for each device back to the control cabinet and the potential for wiring errors.

“Our customers have always benefited from the flexibility and rugged dependability of the BL Compact,” said Don Eichman, Product Specialist, TURCK. “The stainless steel option enhances this product’s versatility even further by allowing our customers to use it in virtually any industrial or process automation application.”

The IP67- and 69K-rated BL Compact system is currently available with four, eight or 16 ports. M8 or M12 connectors for bus communication and auxiliary power facilitate easy installation into any application, existing or new.
