As an example product

The VIPA 300V modules are part number comparable to the Siemens alternative and are interchangeable with the Siemens modules without software changes.

The 300V modules from VIPA utilise the Siemens front connector so that wiring changes are not required. The DO modules are short circuit and overload protected and come with larger 1Amp and 2Amp outputs depending on type required.

The 200V modular PROFIBUS I/O system is well regarded, up to 32 modules can be used in one Profibus slave meaning a total of 1024 I/O is possible on each slave and 125 slaves in each system.
