The Profinet master module features eight M12 ports on each port of an IO-Link master channel and a configurable digital I/O channel. The digital hubs are available in 16 inputs or 12 inputs + 4 outputs versions.

The daisy-chain wiring topology and integrated 2-port switch with 100Mbps full duplex data transmission enable the no switch wiring of applications. The module also features short-circuit protection, media redundancy protocol (MRP), web server and visible diagnostic LEDs.
