The PENN (peripheral expansion network node) is a network device that lets you install Advanced’s comprehensive range of peripheral cards almost anywhere on the network, without needing additional panels. It delivers great flexibility along with significant installation cost savings.

  •  Add a wide range of input/output options, almost anywhere on the network and up to 1.5km from the panel
  •  Install over 6,000 peripherals on a network
  •  Run up to 199 PENN cards on a fault-tolerant network
  •  Each PENN card supports up to 32 peripheral cards
  •  Reduce costs and disruption by connecting inputs and outputs directly to the network instead of wiring them back to a panel
  •  Straightforward MxPro 5 configuration through Advanced’s DynamixTools software
