The DICO family offers a wide range of expansion modules for digital and analogue I/Os.

The following are also available:

  • Impulse counting modules
  • Modules for the acquisition of thermocouples and thermo-resistances
  • Modules for the acquisition of load cells
  • Modules for the management of 4 independent axes for controlling stepper motors, using trapezoidal or S-curve speed profiles

It’s possible, moreover, to supply ad hoc modules, which meet the particular needs of the customer.

DIGITAL MODULES: The Digital Modules make it possible to expand the number of I/Os, that is, Digital Inputs and Outputs present in the DICO family unit. They therefore make it possible to expand and combine different types of modules in a customized system exploiting all the possible functions inside a shared platform.
