Unlike conventional PLC I /O, SmartStix I /O is a new terminal-block style I /O for the Operator Control Station. It can be used to expand the I /O capacity of any OCS, and it is very cost effective as remote I /O.
Because SmartStix I /O connects to any OCS CsCAN network port, it can be combined with SmartStack I/O to provide the best I/O selection for the application. And, output modules feature Electronic Short-Circuit Protection (ESCP).
Compact, DIN-rail Mounted
SmartStix I /O is extremely compact, providing 16 and 32 point digital I /O in a package only 1.5" (39mm) deep and a footprint of 2"H x 4.5"W (50 x 116mm) or 2"H x 7"W (50 x 177mm).
With its small footprint, SmartStix I /O takes up very little panel space whether located in the main control panel or tucked away in a remote location.
SmartStix I /O has a barrier style terminal strip and can be mounted on a DIN-rail. Plus, removable terminals make field replacement fast and convenient.
Expands I /O Capacity, Local or Remote
From the miniOCS to the Color-Touchscreen OCS, SmartStix I /O easily expands the I /O capacity of any OCS utilising the CsCAN network port available with every model. It is especially cost effective when added to a miniOCS.
SmartStix I /O offers fast response times without sacrificing robustness, with no need for a costly I/O interface unit. In addition to its peer-to-peer capabilities, CsCAN is used as a highly efficient method of distributing SmartStix I /O up to 6000 ft away.
Easy to Set Up-Easy to Configure
Time and complexity to configure most remote I /O systems is a drawback. SmartStix I/O greatly reduces setup time. Just assign a unique ID to the I /O module using the integrated rotary switches, connect a 5-wire shielded cable, and add a single, simple function block to your Cscape control program. You'll be up and running in no time.
