This white paper explores the use of intelligent remote I/O in industrial automation systems. Employing a distributed architecture, rather than centralized control, offers three advantages: minimizing single points of failure, spreading the load, and maximizing scalability.
The paper details applications that could be made more efficient by using built-in functions offered by intelligent remote I/O. It also gives a specific example of how distributed intelligence could be used in a PLC system.
