With the ME-IO housing from Phoenix Contact, design engineers can create and build their own custom controllers, rather than settling for an off-the-shelf controller that doesn’t suit the application needs. A variety of widths, heights, and configurations yield a wide range of design options.
The ME-IO can accommodate up to 60 connection points in an 18-mm wide package. If the job requires more space for complex designs or larger components, larger widths of 37.6 mm and 75.2 mm are also available.
The housing has two types of plugs for fast and easy field termination. It features built-in backplane communication for scalable design, without taking up valuable connection points for communication. A variety of accessories are also available, including different cover sizes, pre-drilled covers for LEDs, and a rotatable marking cover.
