Thanks to the FieldConnex Multi-Input Output (MIO; photo), it is now possible to connect digital signals from several varied functions to the fieldbus via a single address. The FieldConnex MIO allows discrete signals with four different functions to be integrated into the digital infrastructure. For example, it can monitor status of up to twelve Namur sensors. Alternatively, the FieldConnex MIO can control up to four valves, including final position feedback and partial stroke test, or enable the overflow and idle level of containers and conduits to be monitored via vibration limit switches. For the first time, the component is also able to collect signals from pulse and frequency generators. This is necessary when detecting standstill of motors is critical to plant or process safety, for example. — Pepperl+Fuchs GmbH, Mannheim, Germany
