Phoenix Contact is introducing the new IL MII BK DI8 DO4-PAC Bus Coupler that allows seamless connection of Inline Modular I/O to the Mechatrolink Motion Field Network. When used in combination with Mechatrolink-compatible drives and controls, the MII BK permits easy integration of scalable I/O to provide an overall system with single network motion and machine control.
The MII BK features eight digital inputs and four digital outputs and offers expansion configurations with a wide range of available input and output modules, including high-density digital, analogue and temperature input. The bus coupler is compatible with Mechatrolink I and Mechatrolink II networks and provides the onboard diagnostics and modular advantage of the Phoenix Contact Inline system.
