Eaton: Modular I/O System
The XI/ON modular input/output system helps users reduce equipment costs.
Designed for decentralized signal processing, the system provides intelligent, adaptable I/O options for global applications across industries. It includes two series of I/O modules: the XN, which provides modularity with hot-swappable plug-in modules; and the XNE, which provides integrated I/O modules and bases in higher density configurations. A wide range of digital, analog and technology modules is available, and the system can be scaled up or down as needs change. Base modules for the XN Series connect field wiring for standard XI/ON modules; they are available for 2, 3 and 4-wire connections, as block or slice modules, with either spring-cage or screw terminals. XNE modules are available with push-in, spring-cage terminals only and are compatible with the XN spring-cage base modules. Standard field buses include EtherNet/IP, Modbus TCP, DeviceNet, PROFIBUS DP, and CANopen.
