Whether modular or compact, in the control cabinet or junction box – thanks to advanced I/O modules, communication is fast and cost-effective. Automation solutions from Phoenix Contact cover all common bus systems and networks. The versatile range with IP20 protection provides reliable protection for your data and signal traffic and renders your systems usable in every possible area of application. The transmission speed, functions, and design can be set according to your requirements.

Your advantages

  • High measurement accuracy, lower cycle times, and better control quality, thanks to extremely short response times
  • Flexible use, thanks to a wide range of functions and various designs
  • Increased system availability, due to reliability even under the most adverse conditions

Axioline F – fast, robust, easy

Axioline F is open to all Ethernet-based communication protocols.  

Axioline F is the Ethernet specialist for the control cabinet

Axioline F is the modular I/O system for the control cabinet. Open to all Ethernet-based communication protocols and available in various designs, Axioline F offers maximum flexibility. 

With Axioline F, you transmit data in real time from the I/O level up to the controller – and Axioline F is particularly resistant to interference, with EMC properties. Various safe I/O modules also enable the acquisition and output of safety-related signals.

Save time when connecting sensors and actuators and benefit from easy handling.

Inline – more flexibility

With Inline, you benefit from complete flexibility thanks to the wide range of functions  

Inline – wide range of functions and a tailor-made number of channels, for more individuality

Inline is the flexible all-rounder in a fine-grained design for use in control cabinets. You can design your automation functions in a unique way from a wide range of I/O modules and function terminals for all popular fieldbus systems and Ethernet networks.

Thanks to the slim overall width, you can extend your station using a minimal amount of space. Safety applications or I/Os for potentially explosive areas can also be connected and integrated easily.

Inline Block IO – extremely compact

Inline Block IO has been tailored for your standard I/O signals  

Inline Block IO provides a high number of channels in a compact design

The Inline Block IO devices offer a high number of channels in an extremely flat design and are ideal for junction boxes.

Various separate digital input and output modules, analog I/O modules, and different input and output combinations are available in one device.

Inline Block IO has been tailored for your standard I/O signals in system parts with low I/O volume.

INTERBUS ST – optimum connection

INTERBUS ST – the I/O system with permanent wiring  

INTERBUS ST – the I/O system with permanent wiring

With the INTERBUS Smart Terminals, we offer you a block-based modular I/O system with plug-in electronics, which are therefore easier to maintain. It optimally combines medium to high channel volumes with INTERBUS.

Thanks to the modular design and modules which can be connected as desired, it is possible to adapt it to your individual needs.
