Rexroth Inline I/O
Rexroth Inline is a highly-scalable, modular I/O system. The system offers a complete range of digital and analog I/O modules, including block I/O, as well as supply units for connected sensors/actuators. Expansion modules are available to provide additional functionality including counter modules, RTD modules (sensor types Pt, Ni, Cu, and KTY), encoder input modules, and stepper motor output modules. Rexroth's Inline I/O system is now available with a SERCOS interface to provide single-bus architecture for your entire control system. Besides SERCOS, other interfaces are available including PROFIBUS-DP, DeviceNet, and INTERBUS for open interoperability with existing systems.
Rexroth Fieldline I/O
Rexroth Fieldline I/O offers IP67 protection which makes it suitable for harsh environments and washdown. You can use Rexroth's compact Fieldline I/O units to bring I/O peripherals close to the sensors and actuators on your machine to reduce wiring costs and installation time. These modules feature diagnostic and status LEDs and provide a direct field connection which eliminates the need for additional T-connectors. Rexroth Fieldline I/O is available with various fieldbus interfaces including PROFIBUS-DP, DeviceNet and INTERBUS. Fieldline modules with 8 inputs, 8 outputs, or a combination module with 4 inputs and 4 outputs are available.
