The Stride Field I/O family of modules provides a simple and economical means to connect inputs and outputs to a Modbus TCP communications network. Each module operates as a standalone Modbus TCP server, and can be configured via a built-in web server. Analog input, output and thermocouple modules have fully isolated or isolated-in-pairs channels for noise-sensitive applications.
STRIDE Field I/O modules provide up to 16 discrete inputs with options for discrete and relay outputs. Discrete I/O modules allow monitoring and control of ON/OFF signals used with devices such as limit switches, sensors, pneumatic solenoid valves and indicating lights. Relay output modules allow higher AC or DC currents and are used with power relays, pumps, motor starters and contactors.
STRIDE Field I/O analog input modules are available with up to 8 current (-20 to +20 mA) or voltage (-10 to +10 VDC) inputs. Analog output modules provide four 0-20mA/0-10VDC output channels. Analog I/O modules supply the values needed for precision control of a process including level, flow, and pressure data.
STRIDE Field I/O temperature modules provide 4 or 8 thermocouple inputs or 4 RTD channels per module. Temperature is considered to be one of the most measured parameters in industrial automation. Maintaining a specific temperature is crucial for equipment used to fabricate electronics, heat fluids, or sanitize other equipment.
