End plates for the NITRA PAL electro-mechanical system terminate the electrical I/O assembly or allow connection to additional I/O subsystems that share a common IP address. A closed-end spacer is required when the NITRA PAL is used for field I/O only (without pneumatics).
The Pneumatic Automation Link electro-pneumatic system can be used as a field I/O system with electrical I/O, pneumatic valves, or both. For systems with electrical I/O, an Ethernet/IP slave bus coupler allows the system to be controlled remotely via an Ethernet/IP master; a bus expansion coupler allows the system's installation to be physically split up into parts while only using one connection to the master.
A variety of electrical I/O modules are available for this flexible field I/O system.

The Pneumatic Automation Link (PAL) bus couplers allow PAL I/O systems to be controlled via an Ethernet/IP master. A bus expansion coupler allows the PAL system to support multiple local I/O locations.
I/O modules for the NITRA PAL electro-pneumatic system include discrete DC I/O modules, analog I/O modules, and a temperature input module.
Several end plates are available for the I/O side of a PAL electro-pneumatic system. These include:
