Signal modules (SM) to connect sensors and actuators are the interfaces of the system to the process. Digital signal modules acquire the binary control signals to and from the process level.
A variety of different digital signal modules provides exactly the I/O modules, which are required for each task. The digital modules differ in the number of channels, voltage and current ranges, isolation, and diagnostic and alarm capability.
Each signal module consists of a terminal and an electronic module.
The terminal module (TM) contains the receptacle for the electronic module (EM), the backplane connectors and contacts for the distribution of the load power supply electronics, the modular connection to DC 24 V load power supply and the staircase-shaped terminal block for wiring.
Furthermore the terminal module processes a locking system for fixing to a profile rail. The SLIO system can also be constructed "block by block" outside the cabinet and later assembled as a complete system in the control cabinet.
The functionality of the signal module is defined via the electronics module that is connected by a secure sliding mechanism to the terminal module.
During service the defective electronic module can be replaced without detaching the wiring.
