The Pneumatic Automation Link, or "PAL", is a versatile field I/O system that can include I/O or pneumatic valve, or a combination of both. The system is controlled either by an Ethernet/IP master or direct wiring (for exclusively pneumatic valves). All components are rated for IP65, intended to be machine mounted, and can be split into multiple subsystems that only use one master connection. Each assembly can support up to 40 I/O modules and 40 valve bases so it can control the most complex systems. Power, I/O and network connections are made via standard M8 or M12 connections. All PAL components come with an efficient diagnostic system. PAL components have a 1-year warranty.
