The RSTi distributed I/O is part of our High-performance platform strategy that leverages industry standards along with our experience in embedded technology and automation to deliver long-life, higher performance solutions that are easy to configure, manage and upgrade. The RSTi is supported by a wide range of discrete, analog, motion and specialty modules.
The RSTi decentralized I/O addresses the challenges of high installation overhead cost and lack of granularity of a centralized I/O system. The RSTi provides a high-performance distributed I/O network that reduces the high cost of field wiring. The distributed nature of the RSTi enables a machine builder to design in sections with distributed I/O drops closer to the field devices.
Decentralized I/O systems are easily disassembled and re-assembled with a standard off-the-shelf cable verses hundreds of wires coming back to a central control cabinet. The compact RSTi I/O line allows the user to “right-size” the application. Right-sizing minimizes cost and panel space. I/O expansion is simple with the slide and lock design.
