The robust DIOLINE 20 I/O system with its modular architecture, has been specially designed and developed for use on rail vehicles. This means that both field bus connections and input or output modules can be exchanged flexibly. In this way, it is possible to adapt the configuration of the I/O station to the respective application.
The system always consists of a bus coupler and up to 10 connected I/O expansion modules, which communicate process data with the bus coupler via L-Bus.

DIOLINE 20 - I/O modules
A very large selection of I/O modules from the DIOLINE 20 I/O system can be found in our online catalogue. Here the rail-specific characteristics are always supported, e.g. voltage ranges DC 24V, DC 72 V and DC 110 V.
The modules can also be connected as local expansion modules to compact control units from the DIOLINE PLC family and to the vehicle control DIORAIL PC2.
DIOLINE 20 - I/O modules redundant
DIOLINE 20 I/O redundant modules can be used with high-availability applications that require component redundancy.
The principle is simple: every redundant module contains 2 simple modules which are internally connected with each other on the field side. There is still only one connection point in the direction of the field. This saves wiring work and lowers the installation costs.
