Eaton announces new I/O and I/O adapter offerings for Eaton Logic Controllers (ELC). These include new discrete modules with sourcing outputs and higher density dc inputs, as well as smart I/O adapter modules that enable distributed I/O with limited local logic control.

ELC I/O helps customers achieve both broad ELC application coverage and cost-effective distributed I/O solutions, according to the company.

The new adapters support EtherNet/IP, Modbus TCP, Modbus RS-485, and DeviceNet communications. www.eaton.com
