For machine builders there is a great demand to increase the productivity and flexibility of their machines, while maintaining healthy margins. This can be a difficult balancing act between using the most effective technology while working within a shrinking budget. Distributed I/O systems connected to an industrial network allow for I/O data to be spread across the machine and outside of the cabinet; reducing the total component and hardware costs of the system. New developments in distributed I/O technology have lowered the cost per point of the controls design and have reduced the time to integrate.

The focus of this whitepaper is to inform controls engineers working for machine builders about the advantages of distributed modular I/O on an industrial network and how to select the best out-of-the-cabinet controls solution for manufacturing equipment.
