The SmartRail I/O System is Horner’s newest I/O offering.  SmartRail is compact – but highly expandable and scalable.  Start with an Ethernet Base with a built-in two port switch.  Continue by adding I/O modules of your choice that easily snap together.  Each base can hold up to 8 I/O modules, for a total of up to 256 digital and 32 analog points.  Now just daisy-chain as many additional bases that are needed to complete the application – up to a total of 2048 digital and 512 analog I/O.  Software configuration is a snap as well – just plug-and-play using Cscape 9.1. (Released April 26, 2010.)

Digital I/O is available in 8, 16, and 32 point modules – with DC (in and out) and Relay options. For the 32 point modules – SmartLink Wiring Accessories make the multitude of terminations neat and compact. Analog I/O selection is extensive – with modules for 0-10V, 4-20mA, Thermocouples, and RTDs.  These are offered as 4 channel Input only, Input/Output, and Output only models.When it comes to network connectivity – SmartRail is flexible.  The SmartRail Ethernet I/O Base is one of three offerings, along with CsCAN (summer 2010) and Profibus DP.  This allows it to work great with OCS, or even with third party controllers.•
