Rockwell Automation has announced the release of FLEXHA 5000 I/O products said to offer high availability and continued evolution of its PlantPAx Distributed Control System (DCS).

Process customers will see more flexibility and reliability, the company says, enabling integrated control for their Connected Enterprise production system, while decreasing total cost of ownership and enhancing productivity through reduced downtime and time to engineer.

The new FLEXHA 5000 input/output (I/O) module is an I/O platform also said to help reduce hardware complexity and cost by using a more conveniently integrated design.

The modules provide 1 Gb EtherNet/IP network connectivity and are designed to reduce both downtime and engineering time while limiting costs.
