The 1715 Redundant I/O platform requires no user programming code or add-on instructions, special wiring or additional hardware to operate. It supports multiple configurations and applications, in standard and extreme environments, with a single product.
Unlike other I/O platforms, 1715 I/O lets users put redundancy where they need it. It offers the flexibility of simplex (non-redundant) or duplex (redundant) module operations.
Modules offer native device intelligence so that they can monitor their own health with internal diagnostics.
The modules perform multiple samples of a single signal using different criteria to alert users to issues such as open and short circuits, unexpected rate of change and thresholds.
In addition, the 1715 platform includes redundant Ethernet adapters providing greater fault-tolerant capabilities.
