  • Analog and Digital I/O Modules for Compact FieldPoint

Compact FieldPoint offers a variety of analog and digital I/O modules to measure and control industrial sensors and actuators. For analog I/O, you take advantage of the Compact FieldPoint built-in signal conditioning to connect directly to high-voltage, milliamp, and low-voltage signals, thermocouples, RTDs, and bridge circuits (such as strain gauges). For digital I/O, you have built-in signal conditioning for easily connecting to low and high-voltage sinking and sourcing inputs as well as low and high-voltage AC signals. All modules provide a power distribution bridge to make it easy to power sensors or to connect 2-wire current loops. The modules feature 2,300 Vrms transient overvoltage protection between the input channels and the backplane. To make installation and setup easier, the Compact FieldPoint analog input modules feature, HotPnP (plug and play) operation and are automatically detected and identified by the configuration software. Software development is also simplified because, with autoscaling, you can read from or write to the modules in engineering units instead of having to convert the current levels to binary numbers. All analog modules come with NIST-traceable calibration certificates that ensure accurate and reliable analog measurement and control.
