Local interface modules (IFMs) are the gateway to the physical world for every SOMANET Node. The variety of connectors, such as USB, analog input as well as isolated and non-isolated digital IOs, enables the module to support any external sensor that may be required by your application.
Due to the modular characteristics of SOMANET Nodes, IFM GPIO-A/USB modules can be configured with various processing units as well as communication modules. In combination with the open-source SOMANET firmware components for high-end motor control, IFM GPIO-A/USB modules are the key for sensor data acquisition purposes.
