Advantys OTB enables manufacturers to create islands of I/O that are managed by a master controller over a fieldbus or communications network. It is based on an expandable block type architecture that is ideally suited for small- and medium-sized islands of distributed I/O that need to be located as near to a machine as possible. It is available with three communication bases to work with CANopen, Ethernet TCP/IP, or Modbus RS 485 serial line.
