IO-Link Master Block
Balluff’s BNI00CY master block insulates against EMI noise, protects in harsh environments.
Balluff released its BNI00CY EtherNet/IP IO-Link master block, which insulates against noise produced by electromagnetic interference (EMI). This IO-Link master block reduces inductive noise using coil choke filters, reduces conductive noise with its fiberglass-reinforced, polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) housing and reduces capacitive noise by raising the printed circuit board away from the backplane. The non-conductive PPS housing is also inherently non-stick. The block’s built-in display allows configuring of network parameters, and its embedded web server allows for remotely configuring the block and connected IO-Link devices. It offers four Class A IO-Link ports and four Class B IO-Link ports as well as up to 9A of output power with 2A per channel.
