In our previous blog on the “4 Benefits of Universal I/O Modules for Smart Factories,” we discussed how universal input/output (I/O) modules allow machine builders to do more with less. Today, we’re taking a closer look at I/O modules in smart factories, focusing on the added benefits that industrial distributed control units (DCUs) can offer.
In this blog, you’ll learn more about the functions of DCUs, how they’re improving upon I/O modules and what you need to start using them.
