As the 4th industrial revolution gathers pace, the importance of network based control continues to grow. In response, MAC Valves have developed the MI/O-67® Communications Module.
The module is available for these fieldbus protocols:
The MI/O-67® communications module is the brains of the MI/O-67® platform and will be the minimum required module to implement a fieldbus solution. Each communication module is capable of driving up to 32 solenoids (32 singles, 16 doubles max or any combination of the two up to 32 solenoids) on the MAConnect® stack. The module has a capability of outputting 8A max (0.5 A max per channel) to the MAConnect® stack. You can connect up to 12 additional modules to each communication module and have 8A shared across those additional modules. All of the MI/O-67® modules will operate on a 24VDC negative common setup. It will be attached to the MAConnect® stack via a valve series specific adapter.
