Well, we have, and we did. And now, there is a better way to meet your Input-Output needs: the 3-Ci Intelli-Block.
Speaking of loose, though, we’ve also thought of that – and designed the Intelli-Block so you can mount it wherever you like (especially externally). This eliminates expensive junction boxes, unlike other I/O systems, and can even do double-duty: when mounted in suitable external areas, such as on coil tubing injectors, you can then utilize the Wi-Fi option and eliminate the MODBUS cable altogether!
And let’s not forget the hardware, either. All of the included modules (4, 6, or 8 sets) have built-in barriers for intrinsic safety, right off the manufacturing line. There are programmable tri-colour LED lights to check the status of your analog connections– we currently offer voltage inputs, as well as dry contact and 4-20 mA input/outputs. You can also choose to port MODBUS data through a RS485 or Ethernet cable, or simply through a wireless connection. Check out the full list of specifications and available modules below. Talk about flexibility!
