New from TURCK! TBEN-S (Small) Series, Block-I/O Modules

These ultra-compact multiprotocol block-I/O modules are the smallest blocks available on the market.

TURCK is pleased to introduce the first ultra-compact, digital block-I/O modules of the new TBEN-S (Small) Series. The TBEN-S series provides customers with a flexible solution and the smallest Ethernet block available on the market at only 1.25” x 5.6”. These fully potted IP67 modules can be mounted directly to a machine and are highly versatile with an extended temperature range from -40°C to +70°C degrees.

Despite the compact design, every TBEN-S module can be operated without additional gateways in each of the three Ethernet systems PROFINET, Modbus TCP, or EtherNet/IP. Using TURCK’s innovative multiprotocol technology, the devices recognize the protocol automatically by listening to the communication during the start-up phase. An integrated switch allows the use of the devices in line topology.

The TBEN-S modules are available in five variants:

  • 4 digital inputs and outputs
  • 8 digital inputs with module diagnostics
  • 8 digital inputs with channel diagnostics
  • 8 digital outputs
  • 8 configurable digital inputs and outputs

The outputs switch a current of up to 2 A. To simplify troubleshooting and significantly reduce downtimes, each output channel is continuously monitored by the integrated diagnostic system that records all events in the device’s event log. Furthermore, the modules feature an internal web server with a responsive design. This is used to display diagnostics in plain text and allows you to use a smart phone to address the server and view diagnostics.

To sum it up…

Why choose the ultra-compact multiprotocol I/O Modules?

  • Smallest Ethernet blocks on the market
  • Available in five variants to fit your specific application needs
  • Can be mounted directly on the machine
  • Internal web server can display diagnostics in plain text and is accessible on a mobile device – this simplifies troubleshooting and reduces downtime

Fully Programmable Temperature Sensor with Integrated Resistance Temperature

Detector Provides All-In-One Measurement Solution

TURCK introduces the TS530 temperature sensor, the latest addition to the company’s temperature sensor line. Featuring an integrated resistance temperature detector (RTD), the TS530 combines the display, process connection and the RTD all in a single part for fast and reliable performance.

Simple, push-button programming and large, highly-visible LED displays ensure easy operation, while a unique rotatable display that can turn up to 340 degrees allows for flexible viewing in the field. The sensor also sends feedback to a PLC, allowing operators the ability to monitor performance from virtually any location.

“We created the TS530 to offer a solution that would combine our proven TS400 and TS500 programmable sensors with an integral class A RTD,” said Rich Tallant, Product Manager, TURCK. “With the display, control, process connection and RTD all in a single part, the TS530 streamlines temperature measurement for our customers’ diverse applications.”

TURCK TS530 temperature sensors feature a new design for easy mounting and installation, allowing users to mount them directly to a tank or pipe with no mounting bracket required. For reliable performance in harsh manufacturing environments, the sensor meets IP69K protection ratings and operates in temperatures ranging from -50 to 150 degrees Celsius.
