I/O Modules in IP67 from Bihl+Wiedemann help you realize considerable cost savings in your plant. Profit from the advantages of I/O Modules in IP67 (e.g. the 8I Module) even when using just 3 or more I/O Modules in the field. You save not only hardware and installation costs but also reduce wiring expenses compared with other systems.
- Clear savings in hardware and installation costs: You don’t need either plugs for connecting to the power supply or cumbersome self-assembled fieldbus connectors (2 per fieldbus module). Instead the I/O Modules are simply connected using the familiar yellow cable and piercing technique (see Fig. 1)

Reduced wiring expense: In contrast to IP67 modules in comparable fieldbus solutions, which have to be wired in a line, the I/O Modules from Bihl+Wiedemann allow tree structure as a flexible cabling method. This means stubs from the main string can be created anywhere, also enhancing transparency in the network (see Fig. 2).
