Manufacturers can now realize the design and productivity benefits of On-Machine I/O modules on smart machines used in harsh applications. The new Allen-Bradley ArmorBlock I/O modules from Rockwell Automation can operate in a wide range of temperatures and offer up to IP69K protection in applications like automotive, material handling, packaging, and welding.

 The new ArmorBlock I/O options can be mounted anywhere on a machine for shorter cable runs and lower wiring costs. They use nickel-plated zinc die-cast housing, have QuickConnect functionality and offer diagnostics in an EtherNet/IP universal digital I/O block to reduce commissioning and troubleshooting times. 

Three IO-Link hub blocks help reduce design complexity by allowing more devices through the IO-Link master. And an M12 L-coded power connector on selected blocks supports higher current, allowing more blocks to be daisy-chained and resulting in lower wiring and installation costs.

For companies with separate I/O blocks for digital input and output, the ArmorBlock I/O modules are an ideal choice. They provide 16-channel self-configurable digital I/O with flexibility to be used as the digital input or output depending on the application needs.
