Rockwell Automation I/O modules with Connected Enterprise support
The Allen-Bradley Flex 5000 I/O platform’s higher-speed connectivity and expanded bandwidth deliver increased amounts of data back to the controller. This helps future-proof control systems for a Connected Enterprise. It is built on a 1 GB architecture with communications supporting device-level ring (DLR), linear and star topologies. The I/O modules help to reduce engineering time with simplified wiring and design. Installation is eased with a flexible architecture that includes vertical and horizontal mounting and copper and fiber media options. Hardware requirements can be minimized during installation because the modules are designed to operate in extreme environments (-40 to 70 °C operating temperatures).
