AutomationDirect’s NITRA Pneumatic Automation Link compatible with electric I/O and/or pneumatic valves.
AutomationDirect launched its NITRA Pneumatic Automation Link (PAL), a field I/O system that can include electrical I/O or pneumatic valves, or a combination of both. The system can be controlled either by an Ethernet/IP master or direct wiring for exclusively pneumatic valves. All components are rated IP65, intended to be machine mounted, and can be split into multiple subsystems that use only one master connection. Each assembly can support up to 40 I/O modules and 40 valve bases to control the most complex systems. Power, I/O and network connections are made via standard M8 or M12 connections.
