FLEX 5000™ I/O Modules

NL-2204-FLEXModulesThese FLEX 5000™ I/O modules are a rugged and flexible distributed I/O solution, which allows you to choose your I/O to meet your operational needs. FLEX 5000 I/O enhances communication with 1 Gb EtherNet/IP™ connectivity, which offers higher speed and increased bandwidth. To provide flexibility in your network architecture, these modules includes 2 copper or 2 fiber ports (SFP) and support for DLR, Star, Linear, and PRP topologies. 

What's New?

Meet fail-safe requirements with the new FLEX 5000 analog safety I/O modules

Gain greater productivity and increased protection in a wider range of applications with our FLEX 5000 portfolio of discrete and analog fail-safe I/O modules. The new analog safety additions help meet more fail-safe requirements and minimize related downtime risks, where speed/frequency measurement, temperature sensors, pressure and flow sensor monitoring are required for functional safety protection.
