Machine mount I/O devices are the data satellites of the machine
Machine mount I/O devices are expected to support simple digital and analog inputs and outputs and other modules with intelligence built in support motor starters, variable speed drives, communication modules and radio frequency identification (RFID) tag readers. Integrated safety can support systems more simply than hardwired solutions or separate systems.
