Swappable, Fully Isolated Remote I/O
Remote I/O is designed to support DCS/PLC systems by expanding their
I/O flexibility and capabilities in addition to providing all full
channel-to-channel isolation. The Remote I/O communicates directly
to the PLC and DCS via industry standard open-protocol networks.
Remote I/O also can be used as stand-alone distributed I/O communicating
with popular HMI software such as Citect, Intellution and Wonderware.
The Remote I/O can be locatedremotely in the field, or within an
instrumentation cabinet such as test stands.
and scalability of M-System’s Remote I/O supports future system
upgrades withfull isolation between power-communication-I/O and
between analog channels. Economical non-isolated analog modules
are also selectable. Isolated analog I/O modules provide high-performance
signal conversion/conditioning and complete three-way plus channel-to-channelisolation.
This ensures you a highly dependable system.
include: signal concentrator, data collection in flow and levelmonitoring,
injection molding monitoring and control, test stands and prototyping,
glass furnace temperature control, assembly line discrete ON/OFF,
paint booth environment reporting, pharmaceutical processes.
I/O Offering: Scalable and Flexible
a specialist in signal conditioning, offers not only 4-20 mA / 1-5
V or discrete modules, but also temperature and other sensor inputs
such as strain gauge, AC signals, pulse signals, etc.
I/O modules can be mixed and mounted at any position on a backplane
8-position and 16-position bases with single/dual channel analog
I/O modules are available for the R5 Series. The R3 Series is furthermore
scalable from 2-position base, with 4- to 16-channel analog I/O
can then take a minimum required number of modules and combine them
to meet your specific system requirements.
Communications: Reliable and Flexible
R3 and R5 Series supports optional redundant communications for
mission critical applications. Dual network communication modules
are optional. Additionally network interface modules can be placed
without removing power.
If you choose
two different network protocols for the network modules, the remote
I/Os can be directly monitored by two different manufacturers’
Downtime, Quick Installation
R3 and R5 Series I/O modules are field configurable via DIP Switches
or via PC Configurator.
Switches configure the I/O type, range and sensor failure modes
(upscale or downscale).
module settings include baud rate and node address.
replacement can be performed without programming or removing power.
Simply remove the failed unit and replace with a good unit with
the same DIP-Switch settings. No additional programming is required.
Power for High Reliability
Dual power supplies for the R5 Series allow
support for two different power sources. For example: the primary
power can be supplied by 120 V or 240 VAC mains power while the
secondary power module is connected to backup power from a UPS 24
Total System Cost
With its flexible and easy-to-user features, M-System’s Remote
I/O ensures the total cost reduction not only of hardware price
but also of the time and additional resources such as specialized
