I/O Modules Save Time

Three new inline I/O modules designed for use with the vendor’s PLCs and PACs are said to help reduce engineering time, wiring and hardware costs.

The new I/O modules include the SSI and INC IN, which bring heightened encoder feedback capabilities to smaller PLCs, and the PWM/2 module for step and direction control or pulse width modulation. The SSI and INC can handle a large number of axes and can dictate position and speed. The SSI features four inputs and position detection, which can identify the motor position during its rotation. The drive control allows users to dictate position and speed of the drive. Priced lower, the INC encoder pulses quickly as the axis rotates. It can execute precise control, allowing machine builders to incrementally fine-tune the motor to specific degrees.
