Decentralised control solutions permit modularly constructed machines. This can be achieved with Jetter’s compact JX3 I/O system. For the connection of the external sensors, Jetter searched for a compact but highly functional solution.
With the 30-pole connection level BL-I/O 3.5 Weidmüller could offer Jetter an innovative solution for the connection of external sensors which impressed them greatly. The BL-I/O combines a complete sensor-actuator distribution system with eight I/O channels including a power supply into a surface area equivalent to the size of a postage stamp. With these characteristics it is possible for the users to power and test the sensors directly from the JX3 module, without the need for the controller to be in operation.
Weidmüller's 30-pole connection level BL-I/O 3.5 has been designed into the equipment of Jetter's 25-mm wide JX3 devices
