The Future of Customizable I/O

Posted by Advanced Controls & Distribution on Apr 17, 2017 11:17:16 AM

Remote I/O systems are becoming the future of sensor data and system controls. Input and output data and commands make a system function and enable sensors and controls to increase the efficiency of a system.  Remote I/O allows for even more functionality of the system by being able to control input and output from different distances depending on the needs of the facility.  These remote I/O's connect signals from remote locations and bring them to a central controller system to be utilized without having to be at the location of the signal.
