Ethernet expandable I/O modules can now process IF/THEN/ELSE logic for rule-based I/O operation.

Acromag’s new BusWorks® NT series remote I/O modules are now enhanced with conditional logic. The conditional logic increases the functionality with a system of rules that allows extremely complicated decisions based on relatively simple “yes/no” questions. For example, reading an analog or digital input value can trigger an action to happen as a result. This…
