Remote I/O Digital input modules

40% More Space in Your Switch Cabinet; Remote I/O Modules Impress with Their Unique Compact Design. Pepperl+Fuchs completes its wide range of I/O modules with the half-size, eight-channel digital input modules and offers the most compact remote I/O solution for process automation. The slim modules save valuable space in switch cabinets, thereby reduce the cost per channel.











Digital input module

Pepperl+Fuchs complements its product range of extra slim modules with the newly developed eight-channel digital input modules. Pepperl+Fuchs has essentially made these new modules possible by creating a new electrical design. The new housings of the digital high-density input modules are half as wide as those of the previous version, but this is partly due to the compact plug construction. The two plug-in connectors found on the front of the housing each have eight contacts. In addition, the redesigned housing features status LEDs for each of the eight available channels, enabling quick diagnostics and accelerating both commissioning and maintenance.

The new modules require around 40% less installation space in a complete remote I/O system including com unit coupler and power supply, depending on the signal mix. This reduced installation space increases  flexibility when planning automation solutions using Pepperl+Fuchs remote I/O systems. The innovative, slim modules can be installed in spaces where larger switch cabinets cannot fit. The high-density modules are half the size and their slim profile creates space for more modules.

The analog counterparts were introduced some time ago and are the result of innovative electrical design. At just 16 millimeters wide, the high-density modules fit in existing backplanes and are easy to configure.
