The IP67-rated Allen-Bradley ArmorBlock IO-Link master from Rockwell Automation (Milwaukee, WI) allows manufacturers and industrial operators to access detailed sensor diagnostics in harsh operating environments. The device features event and process time-stamping capabilities for on-machine applications. The IO-Link master stores up to 40 timestamps of sensor events on each channel. Input timestamps of all sensor data also can be sent to the controller upon a change of state. The on-machine option requires only a single cable from the cabinet. The ArmorBlock IO-Link master includes connectivity for up to eight IO-Link sensors.
