  • New 7” Widescreen Model (new chassis) includes WVGA TFT Graphics, Full Ethernet, and Additional Built-in I/O (up to 70 points)


Agenda of topics

  • I/O Direction

  • History

    • SmartStack. The Original “on the back” I/O Platform for OCS. Still has great utility for Modular “Built-in” I/O

    • FOX. Not really an I/O style on its own, but an expansion method for SmartStack.

    • SmartStix. Block-style I/O based on CsCAN. Currently our most popular I/O style along with Built-in I/O

    • Built-in. Developed with the XLe Release in 2006.

    • SmartBlock. Released starting in 2010 for Specialty & Analog modules to complement SmartStix

    • SmartRail. Released in 2010 as a cost-effective, highly scalable I/O platform for applications from medium to large


Agenda of topics

  • I/O Direction

  • SmartStack

    • Will remain a fully-supported, promoted as a modular “built-in” I/O platform

    • Will be supported in plastic and metal

    • Metal continues to be viable with the Ruggedized RX371 – with more metal constructed controllers likely

    • I/O Models pared down in ‘10 from 70+ to around 30. Long-term plan is around 16-20 most popular models

  • FOX (Fiber Optic Expansion)

    • Is being de-emphasized

    • Issues with Plastic Fiber parts have made it a challenge to keep viable

    • Future emphasis on glass fiber possible, but still under evaluation


Agenda of topics

  • I/O Direction

  • SmartStix

    • Remains our primary block-style Digital I/O Family now and in the future

    • Sometime in 2012, Analog models may be replaced by SmartBlock equivalents

  • SmartBlock

    • Specialty/Analog Models continue to be filled out throughout 2011

    • UL in second half of 2011

    • Ethernet will be added in 2011/2012

    • Optional Logic capability will be available in 2011/2012


Agenda of topics

  • I/O Direction

  • SmartRail

    • Strongly emphasized for new applications with modular, scalable I/O requirements

    • Ethernet & CsCAN now available, providing compatibility with entire product line

    • Additional I/O Cards should be added in 2011/2012

      • High-speed counter, PWM

      • Thermister

      • AC In


Agenda of topics

  • I/O Direction

  • Built-in I/O

    • CORE4 products in 2011/2012 (XL6, XL10, new XL7) will get 30-35 points of additional built-in digital & analog I/O

    • Additional I/O circuitry will be onboard, but I/O termination will be on DIN-rail, keeping panel door cleaner

  • COM option I/O

    • Today, this expansion is strictly for communications (Ethernet, cell, modems)

    • In March/April 2011 – 2/4 channel Analog Output option will be released

    • High-speed in/out module for 2011/2012

    • Improved Mechanical package will make installation easier, remove connector conflicts with Model 4 & Model 5 I/O
