In all factory automation industries, the aim is to minimize the interval between planning & output. This aim has to be met at a time when modularization is advancing at an increasing rate, and systems are becoming more decentralized with every upgrade. Weidmuller has realized these needs early on and combined them into an effective IP-20 remote I/O system.
Interoperability in the field is a make or break feature for any automation equipment. Whether you’re using an I/O link or transmitting high levels of power in a decentralized system, making sure it retains its instantaneous speed is extremely vital for precise operation. With Weidmuller’s U-Remote IP67, you’re always prepared for various growing requirements, thanks to the slim yet high density, multi-protocol system.
Cost or function? That's the choice many design engineers have to make when it comes to I/O. With products like Siemens ET200SP Remote I/O, you can strike a balance between cost and function for the best possible result.
More than just another interface, IO-Link is the smart concept for standardized linking of switching devices and sensors to the control level by means of an economical point-to-point connection. The IO-Link communication standard at the fieldbus level enables centralized fault diagnostics and, because parameter data can be modified dynamically direct from the application, the devices can be adjusted to the prevailing production requirements during operation.
