ArmorBlock® Guard I/O™ is an IP67 rated remote I/O node for the control and monitoring of discrete safety devices like light curtains, safety mats, various guarding devices, emergency stop buttons, and safety actuators. Guard IO is a networked IO device used to transmit safety data to/from Guard PLC™, GuardLogix®, SmartGuard™ and other CIP Safety controllers on a network. It communicates on DeviceNet using the CIP Safety protocol.

All CompactBlock Guard IO and ArmorBlock Guard IO products are designed for reliable operation in industrial environments, plus are TUV and UL certified for functional safety in applications up to SIL3 and category 4. As a proven technology, Guard I/O will detect failures at the I/O and field safety device level, while enhancing operator protection. ArmorBlock Guard IO can be easily mounted on the machine, close to the sensors and actuators, reducing wiring time and startup costs by eliminating electrical boxes and simplifying cable installation. Guard I/O is especially suited for robotic, point-of-operation, guard-monitoring, and all remote control applications.
