Molex Introduces HarshIO Industrial Ethernet I/O Modules for Motorized Drive Rollers


Molex introduces new HarshIO Industrial Ethernet I/O Modules, allowing programmable logic controllers to connect to motorized drive rollers over an Ethernet fieldbus. This is done without requiring a proprietary system specific to one MDR manufacturer, pending the application and MDR type in use. This product is designed for system builders, integrators and end-users designing conveying lines for factory automation, material handling and baggage handling applications.

The modules feature a metallic plate for functional grounding; 4-pole and 5-pole power connector versions; Ultra-Lock M12 connectors; an IP67 seal; eight digital channels; four motor drive roller channels; diagnostic LEDs; three rotary switches; a two-port Ethernet switch; an Ethernet metallic plate to allow both ODVA and PI grounding strategies; and Ethernet fieldbus connectivity.

"Currently, no product identical to this exists in the market," said Eric Gory, global product manager, Molex (News - Alert). "The new Molex modules will give customers better quality operations thanks to timely predictive maintenance, less downtime, faster troubleshooting, and data collection that helps prioritize operator efforts."

Compared to similar products, Molex MDR Modules simplify systems by controlling up to four MDRs on one module. The product also auto-detects both ITOH DENKI PM500XE/XP and INTERROLL EC310 MDRs and offers active MDR protction through smart energy dissipation.
