RICHMOND (October 18, 2004)—Control systems can have connectors used with logic control equipment because they might have been developed incrementally over time, or because users need specific components to meet their particular goals. In these cases, establishing reliable communications with standard interfaces can be difficult.Due to a lack of universally followed standards for logic control elements, such as Programmable Logic Control (PLCs), Distributed Control Systems (DCSs), and remote terminals and industrial Personal Computers (IPCs), users of these control elements may have a need for specialized physical connectors. These connectors are needed in order to establish physical layer connectivity between the far-end sensors and actuators, and the logic control elements in use. In a number of cases, there is a need for customized I/O modules in order to establish this physical layer path.With Custom I/O Modules Solutions from Weidmuller, customers can get the exact combination of features to address their specific application needs. Weidmuller takes a flexible approach. They can manufacture Custom I/O Modules from customer designs. They can also work with customers to create an I/O module to meet their requirements.
