Embedded Distributed I/O Modules

Our Bulletin 1799 Embedded Distributed I/O Modules provide a standard interface between an input device and machine actuators. You can leverage our proven design technology and reliability without the cost of custom‑packaged solutions—critical for cost-sensitive machine-embedded applications. An available expansion board and universal I/O reduce your initial material investment, minimize inventory, reduce cost per I/O expansion, and maximize I/O use for each application.
