May 9, 2018 – Phoenix Contact’s VIP-ER with Input/Output Accessories (IOAs) system, optimized for Honeywell Experion Universal I/O, is designed to help process engineers get the most out of Universal I/O. The system combines marshalling with the ability to configure wiring functionality on a per-channel basis.
The VIP-ER with IOAs consists of a base, along with several function-specific input/output modules and compatible accessories. The VIP-ER base serves as a universal foundation to connect any signal and marshal it back to the controller. The individual Input/Output Accessories can accept a wide variety of signal types, including:
- Passive feed-through
- Fusing with BFI and disconnects
- Digital relay
- Analog signal isolator with HART transparency
- 24, 120, or 240 V digital signals
- 2-, 3-, or 4-wire analog signals
While engineers will still plan the overall I/O count early in the process, they can assign specific IOAs during installation. Additionally, higher-voltage field signals can be marshalled and converted for use with the 24 V universal I/O controller.
VIP-ER with IOAs was designed to meet the requirements of the Honeywell Experion Universal I/O, but it is compatible with other configurable I/O controllers from other manufacturers.
