Mayfield Heights, O. —Rockwell Automation will introduce a series of new thermocouple and RTD modules and new analog voltage modules for its Point I/O family of I/O solutions. Point I/O family consists of terminal bases with removable terminal strips, I/O modules, and network interface options that are DIN-rail mounted and snapped together to meet an application's needs. The thermocouple module features channel-to-channel isolation and cold-junction compensation (CJC) sensors built into the terminal base. Point I/O modules have DeviceNet networking compatibility and will be available with ControlNet and EtherNet/IP compatibility in future releases. Analog voltage modules are used for feedback from speed measuring and positioning devices. They can generate up to 10 V of user-specified excitation voltage for strain gauges, and also read mV values from strain gauges and similar devices. Both modules will be available in July 2001.
