The Fieldline Modular I/O from Phoenix Contact connects to most fieldbuses and provides a solution where high concentrations of I/O or a variety of signal types are required. The configuration starts with a fieldbus interface module with eight built-in digital inputs. From there, up to 16 self-addressing digital and analog I/O modules can be connected spanning a distance of 20 meters. The inter-module connections enable the placement of I/O modules around mechanical restrictions creating a distributed I/O network that is independent of the fieldbus.
