Interface modules perform signal transmission as well as distribution functions in the device and the system. Interface modules are DIN rail mounted and give a reliable ‘plug and play interface for any industrial control system. These DIN rail or panel mounted printed circuit board modules, subsystems and carriers give design flexibility, simplify panel layouts, and reduce maintenance and downtime.
The purpose of the interface module is to help to establish interface and communication channels between the PLC and other components of the control cabinet i.e the data transfer between I/O modules or between higher levels of PLCs takes place by means of an interface module.
Benefits of interface module
- It is the time-saving configuration.
- It is economical.
- It is space-saving, high-density control cabinet wiring.
- It is safe, the maintenance-free connection of signal lines.
