Intelli-block: The Space-Saving, Remote Input/Output Solution!
Have you ever tried out some of the connectors, casings, Cables, and components available on the market today and thought to yourself: “There has to be a better way to do this!”
Well, we have, and we did. And now, there is a better way to meet your Input-Output needs: the 3-Ci Intelli-Block.
Unlike other remote I/O systems, the Intelli-Block is a solid state device that is completely enclosed in overmolded polyurethane. This means that it does not suffer from expansion, contraction, water or solvent damage, corrosion, or any of the other common degradations of quality that tend to happen on very small scales. In keeping with this toughness, it operates at temperatures between -40° C and 65° C, and weighs less than a kilogram. It is also immune to normal levels of shock and vibration force, so you don’t have to worry about jarring it loose.
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!
So don’t waste any more time with old cables and connections that just don’t cut it anymore. When you need reliability, options, and power – all within one extremely well-protected shell – just look for the 3-Ci Intelli-Block!
