Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. Announces Release of NZ2FT Series Slice Distributed I/O Solution


Vernon Hills, IL - September 15, 2022

This solution is one of the first Slice I/O to be compatible with the CC-Link IE TSN time-sensitive network.

Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. is announcing the release of the NZ2FT Series slice distributed I/O solution. NZ2FT Series is a modular distributed I/O system that operates currently as a remote station for EtherNet/IP, Profibus DP, and Modbus TCP device-level networks. It offers a scalable architecture that accepts a wide range of mix-and-match I/O configurations. This type of remote I/O solution is ideal for machine builders and manufacturing facilities seeking moderate concentrations of modular I/O.

The solution features several components, including the coupler module, power supply, and compact I/O that assembles on a DIN rail to form a remote system, or node. The modular design accepts I/O concentrations from four, eight, and sixteen I/O points, making it cost-effective for machine builders. NZ2FT Series is also designed to be easy to implement, service, and maintain for end users.

"This distributed system is so advanced that individual I/O modules can be exchanged while the system is running," said Rob Ruber, senior product manager at Mitsubishi Electric Automation. "This 'hot swap' will not impact the network, any ongoing process, or any existing wiring. This is an ideal solution to reduce panel space."
