Modules convert fieldbus I/O into power I/O.

Press Release Summary:

Power-I/O Modules convert network I/O, fieldbus I/O, DeviceNet(TM), Profibus(TM), or home automation I/O nodes into power switching nodes rated for 0.1-100 A. Din rail modules, rated 25-100 A, can be installed edge-to-edge on same din rail, without derating, for high-density installations starting at 25 A of switching capability every 30 mm. Some models include built-in, replaceable fuse. All provide 4,000 V optical isolation between input and output circuits.


Original Press Release:

The Bus Stops Here -- Convert Fieldbus I/O into Power I/O

There are hundreds of network i/o, fieldbus i/o, DeviceNet(TM), Profibus(TM), or home automation i/o products. Power-IO(TM) provides the ability to convert those i/o nodes into power switching nodes that are rated for 0.1 to 100 amps. In addition, the 4000 volt isolation of every Power-io point ensures better safety for personnel and machinery while reducing ground loops. Power-io's products are used in these network applications for several reasons. Power-io's "ultra low current-input requirement" (3 - 9 mA) means that the network product, PLC, or PC's control signal can typically activate one or more units without any problems. The din rail modules offer design flexibility since you can install exactly what you need in a space as small as 7.5 mm wide for each unit. Install 1 or 100 without wasting any space or without any concerns about a shared mother-board failing. The 25-100 amp din rail units can be installed edge-to-edge on the same din rail, without de-rating, for high density installations starting at 25 amps of switching capability every 30 mm. Some models include a built-in, replaceable fuse, resulting in faster installations that require less panel space. All Power-io products provide 4000 volt optical isolation between the input and output circuits. The products use a finger-safe design and are CE marked, as well as CSA and UL recognized. Wire terminal markings include the international standard L1 and T1 markings for AC switching and A1 and A2 control input markings. For more information, please visit the www.power-io.com web site.
