Modules for all signal types and directions
In line with the comprehensive Beckhoff I/O portfolio, the I/O function modules of the MX-System also offer a wide product range for all signals of the automation environment. Depending on the requirements, digital input and output signals can be processed or generated with the MO1xxx and MO2xxx modules. The MO3xxx and MO4xxx modules read in or output analog current/voltage signals. In many cases, the modules have configurable signal levels; partly also in combination with digital signals.
With the modules of the MO5xxx series, complex signals from absolute and incremental encoders can be processed for precise measurement tasks in the area of position, frequency and displacement/angle measurement. The I/O modules of the MO6xxx series are EtherCAT gateways. They are used to connect further fieldbuses such as IO-Link, PROFINET or EtherNet/IP. They also offer the possibility to establish simple serial RS2323/RS485 communication to the corresponding devices.
The I/O modules of the MO7xxx series are used for the connection of 24 V DC/48 V DC drive technologies such as servo, stepper and DC motors. Several TwinSAFE-capable I/O modules are available for recording, processing and outputting safety-relevant signals.
Optionally, some I/O modules such as the IO-Link Class B master have an integrated, safe shutdown of voltage or control signals. With the compact MO7xxx drives, safe motion functions can also be implemented with the aid of an optional safety card.
All I/O modules have an integrated electronic fuse. This ensures the line protection required by the standard by monitoring and limiting a maximum output power of 100 W. Due to the systematic use of microcontrollers, the I/O modules have a large number of diagnostic functions as well as diverse setting options.

The MO3xxx I/O modules process analog input and output signals for voltage, current, temperature and other measured variables.
MO4xxx | Analog output
The MO4xxx I/O modules process digital and analog input and output signals.
MO5xxx | Position measurement
The MO5xxx I/O modules are intended for the evaluation of complex signals from absolute and incremental encoders.
MO6xxx | Communication
