Courtesy: TurckTurck's FGEN Advanced I/O Module (AIM) station for industrial Ethernet is designed to provide dependable communication capabilities. The FGEN is ideal for use in on-machine, fixed I/O applications in environments where conditions may not be conducive to traditional I/O.

The FGEN combines multiple Ethernet protocols—EtherNet/IP, Modbus TCP and Profinet—in a single device, yet only allows one Ethernet master to control the outputs while the input and diagnostic data is available to the other protocols. The FGEN AIM station offers isolated power for inputs and outputs and several I/O configurations, including 16 inputs and 16 outputs and an eight input/output station.

The FGEN AIM station is available in IP67-, 68- or 69K-rated housing for reliable operation in harsh environments.
