Ethernet gateway

The BL67 Ethernet gateway for Ethernet/ IP and Modbus TCP/IP provides a reliable communication solution for on-machine, modular I/O applications. The BL67 handles applications requiring digital or analog inputs and outputs, specialty I/O such as SSI and RFID, and serial inputs to industrial Ethernet networks.

Featuring Multiprotocol technology, the gateway combines multiple Ethernet protocols in a single device, yet only allows one Ethernet master to control the outputs while the input and diagnostic data is available to the other protocols. The device offers isolated power for 16 inputs and 16 outputs, in addition to 16 I/O configurations for flexible application requirements. An Ethernet switch allows a line topology between multiple gateways without using an external switch, eliminating the need for additional cable runs to the PLC.
