With this I/O device, the vendor’s eXtreme Fast Control technology (XFC) is now available in a rugged and compact IP 67 housing that allows installation directly on machines without an extra control cabinet, providing space savings and cost reductions. The EP1258 XFC box detects digital input signals with a highly precise resolution of 1ns directly on the machine. This allows reaction times to be shortened—independent of the control cycle—and very fast events to be detected and processed further without requiring special hardware.
