Weidmuller u-remote I/O platform features hot-swappable slices, integrated web server and simple plug-in connections.
Weidmuller launched its u-remote distributed IP20 I/O platform. The platform’s design features 11.5mm-wide I/O slices and Push-In wire technology. The card slices are hot-swappable and can be installed, updated and removed without the need for any tools. The unit also features an integrated web server to provide real time network access to the 64 I/O slices/cards connected to a single field bus coupler. The field bus couplers include ProfiNet, EtherCat, Modbus TCP, Ethernet TCP/IP and many more for seamless integration into existing plant/machine networks. The high-speed system bus provides impressive electronic performance and works with up to 256 DI/DOs in 20 μs.
