Micromax Sensors & Automation announces that Unitronics has released a new line of enhanced I/O expansion modules. Based on the same stable platform as the traditional modules, these four new compact, cost-effective devices offer up to 32 digital I/Os per unit, plus 3 additional analog inputs for maximum I/O capacity and minimized cabinet space.
Equipped with detachable plug-in I/O connectors, the XL-IO expansion modules (IO-D16A3-TO16, IO-D16A3-RO16) can be expanded up to 8 times with the use of Unitronics’ EX-A1 expansion adapter, and they can also be used together with regular Unitronics I/O modules.
However, the XL-EX expansion modules (EX-D16A3-TO16, EX-D16A3-RO8) offer a new concept: no EX-A1 expansion adapter needed. The XL-EX expansion modules incorporate EX-A1 adapter technology but add built-in I/O to serve as the first link to the PLC. Up to 7 XL-IO or standard I/O modules may be connected to each XL-EX expansion module. Software requirements include U90: V6.1.0 or VisiLogic: 8.0.0.
