Wiring with system

Wiring I/O devices with single wires takes a lot of time. In addition, errors and tedious troubleshooting cannot be ruled out. To illustrate this, we have compared conventional wiring (with single wires) with system cabling.

Conventional cabling with single wires

The conventional wiring of single wires is complex:
Several individual wires are connected for each I/O module.

This means that:

  • Each single wire connection is a possible error source.
  • The cable bundles are confusing.
  • Troubleshooting is tedious.
