April 1, 2008




Pepperl+Fuchs’ DeviceNet gateways in K20 housing styles are available in single- and dual-channel versions, and connect AS-Interface to upper-level controllers. cUL-listed to simplify panel construction, they provide diagnostic capabilities while supporting polled I/O and change-of-state operations. Additional features include detected slave display, visual fault diagnostics, support for analog I/O and the ability to network safety devices such as e-stops and light curtains up to Category 4.
