New, high-density Allen-Bradley Compact I/O modules are now available from Rockwell Automation . The additions made to the Allen-Bradley Compact I/O module range from Rockwell Automation include new high-performance analogue, digital and ASCII modules that accommodate a range of applications while conserving panel space.
Providing improved installation and operational flexibility, the new high-density modules are compatible with the Allen-Bradley CompactLogix and MicroLogix control platforms.
All Allen-Bradley Compact I/O modules feature a tongue-and-groove design that enables individual modules to be joined and locked together, allowing precise I/O configuration for specific applications.
The Allen-Bradley Compact I/O modules can be installed either on a panel with two mounting screws or on a DIN rail, eliminating the need for a rack, which saves panel space.
The new Compact I/O modules are available in a range of configurations like, isolated analogue, digital and serial ASCII. The analogue modules offer 16-bit resolution and up to four isolated channels, each with 500V AC or 710V DC for one minute channel-channel and channel-backplane isolation.
The new 32-point 24V DC digital modules feature a standard single-slot plastic case developed specifically to save panel-space. The ASCII module features a two-channel serial ASCII interface with the capacity to support ASCII messages of up to 200 characters. This module is ideal for connecting to bar-code scanners, and printers as well as radio frequency identification (RFID) applications.
