Chartwell Automation has announced that TURCK’s BL compact is now available in a stainless steel model. Stainless steel replaces the exposed metal on BL compact components, including the receptacle housing, ground plate and window screw. The system collects a variety of signals in a single, rugged node on a network. Rather than routing all signals through a control cabinet, this device makes it possible to obtain analog, digital, thermocouple, RTD, serial, RFID or a mixture of signal types in a compact, on-the-machine device over Ethernet IP, DeviceNet, CANopen and PROFIBUS-DP.
