I/O Choices for Machine Builders Enhance Flexibility

Posted by Julia Nelson on Mar 30, 2015 2:38:00 PM


Remote I/O modules are used to personalize systems and are absolutely vital when it comes to communicating between and monitoring systems. These days, growing numbers of available I/Os and various combinations of modules can be used to solve a single problem, which creates flexibility. I/O modules are the solution to many problems that can arise across a system: production errors, malfunctioning parts, inefficient operation, etc. 

Benefits of I/Os goes beyond maintenance though. They can also improve upon system functionality, especially with more recent advances in I/Os. They can be the key in communicating between machines over long distances, cut down on machinery expenses, monitor and collect data from numerous points in a system, and can even improve machine safety.

All of these benefits give more power to machine builders. With these choices at their fingertips, they can accommodate different needs and custom-fit combinations to different scenarios. Plus, there’s I/Os’ most basic flexibility aspect; they allow for connections between unlike machines. If parts of a system are optimized with machines that wouldn’t typically work together, there are options in order to make the system work cohesively.

There are so many choices with I/O modules - analog or digital, mounting types, functions, data collection - that improve flexibility. Company wallets are more flexible with cost saving improvements and production is more flexible with large numbers of module choices.
