Distributed I/O

Assured Systems supplies a range of Distributed I/O solutions, designed to add the ultimate in flexibility to your data acquisition network. Often sensors may be widely distributed throughout a plant where it’s not cost effective to run cabling from each back to a central processor.

In addition, when digitized close to the signal source, low level signals are more accurately acquired.

Distributed I/O – Further Information

Our distributed I/O solutions are intelligent, sensor-to-computer interfaces, which can be used as autonomous data loggers, to acquire data for later download. As an alternative, as many as 31 pods may be connected on a single two-wire multi-drop RS-485 network, allowing a cable distance of up to 4000 ft.

Customers can also go wireless and extend ranges by adding RS-485 wireless transceivers to serial ports on the host computer. Each unit comes in a rugged IP65/NEMA 4 enclosure and can withstand harsh industrial and marine environments.
