RAFI’s outdoor-capable E-BOX control unit for the IO-Link interface features standardized M12 plugs, where users can integrate the E-BOX control unit into new or existing IO-Link systems.

The IO-Link device identification prevents errors, because incorrectly installed devices are reported to the control unit. The IO-Link Master automatically transfers saved parameters to replacement devices. Due to integrated tactile switches from the MICON 5 series, the illuminated pushbuttons of the E-BOX provide tactile feedback.

Included among the options are night mode with various brightness levels; white, red, green, blue, and yellow illumination, or three RGB colours that can be selected by the customer. The buttons can be configured with four different flashing modes for different application cases.

RAFI supplies the E-BOX IO-LINK equipped ready for commissioning with one or two switching or indicator elements from the RAFIX 22 FS+ series. For individual marking of the control components, printed or unprinted FLEXLAB labelling sheets are available.

With their dimensions of 123.2 millimetres x 40 mm x 35.6 mm, the control units are used for assembly on 40 mm profile rails on production lines or safety fences. The accessories include a fixing clip that can be attached to profile rail grooves and other mounting surfaces.
