Weidmuller has introduced a new generation of compact, modular fieldbus I/O products. The XI/ON family offers individual hot-swappable electronic I/O functionality modules and software for station design and diagnostic reporting. The family provides fast response I/O communication via all the common fieldbus protocols, including Profibus DP, CANopen, Interbus and DeviceNet.
Each I/O terminal station has a gateway which acts as the interface between the fieldbus and the I/O modules. The gateway handles the process data on the bus, and also generates diagnostic information for the higher level control system and for the XI/ON software.
