The S800 I/O family is a highly flexible and modular process I/O system that communicates with parent controllers and PLCs over industry standard Fieldbus technology, permitting a virtually infinite number of installation and communication arrangements for any application:
• Small to large
• Step-by-step expansion
• Easy mounting on a DIN-rail
Thanks to its broad connectivity it fits a wide range of process controllers and PLCs from ABB and others. By permitting
installation in the field, close to sensors and actuators, S800 I/O reduces the installation cost by reducing the cost of cabling.
And thanks to features such as “hot swap” of modules, online reconfiguration, and redundancy options, it contributes
to keep production – and thereby profits – up.
