The Brad HarshIO PROFINET I/O Modules from Molex are now certified by the PNO in accordance with PROFINET specifications, meeting all requirements for conformance class B. The Modules were recently launched with Fast Start-Up (FSU) technology to provide reliable solutions for connecting industrial controllers to I/O devices and to start and operate the module in less than 500ms. Typical applications can be found in automation systems with higher-level machine control and a deterministic data cycle.

During certification, these met all requirements for conformance class B including: easy, user-friendly Brad HarshIO replacement without the need for an engineering tool; Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) support, etc.
