Valves and I/O

Remote I/O

Remote I/O is the backbone of "Plug-and-Play Automation". With prewired I/O modules placed within inches of future tooling, sensors and switch can be effortlessly connected to the M8/M12 receptacles on the I/O module. Each module has eight M12 ports which we break into sixteen M8 ports using "Y" adaptors. All sixteen ports are inputs/outputs. Up to 4 modules can specified, creating a 64 I/O count. 

Valve Bank

The Plug-and-Play aspect of A-Cells are made possible by the prewired valve banks and remote I/O modules that are ready to be used. We provide you with screen on the HMI that allow the user to toggle the valves and outputs as soon as the A-Cell is powered up.
