Compact I/O modules from B&R Industrial Automation measure 6.7-in. high x 3.2-in. wide x 1.2-in. deep and are designed to handle distributed I/O signals.

Roswell, GA —Compact I/O modules from B&R Industrial Automation provide space-saving peripheral connections for a variety of applications. IP20 compact I/O modules handle distributed signals ranging from simple digital inputs to SSI encoders. System mounts directly on the machine or on a DIN rail.
Space-saving I/O system modules reduce wiring of sensor and actuators. Discrete I/O signals are collected on the modules and transferred to a controller over a fieldbus. Modules include signal adaptation for a variety of purposes. Beyond digital signals, modules can handle rotational encoder evaluation, gate measurement, event counters, or pulse-width modulation. Analog modules are supplemented with temperature inputs, strain gauge evaluation, or resistance measurement.
Modules are equipped with CAN I/O interfaces or X2X link to expand the I/O backplane in the field. System can be combined with any of the company’s controller families, and other components, to create custom automation architecture.
