CG1504 triangleIntegrated field wiring

EZWire1616 PLC is one of the first of its kind in the PLC market with integrated, field-wire-ready I/O terminals. Every sensor and actuator in the control system can be wired directly to the PLC without needing added screw terminal blocks and wire harnesses, which saves system integrators’ and OEMs’ time, material costs and panel space, and aids wiring error recovery efforts during installation.
