Axioline Smart Elements: System-Free Modules

Dec. 14, 2022
Phoenix Contact's pluggable Axioline Smart Elements are system-free modules without bus communication.

2022 NED Innovation Award Finalist

The pluggable Axioline Smart Elements are system-free modules without bus communication; the individual element only supports the I/O function. Only in combination with a backplane, which functions similarly to an adapter, bus communication for the respective I/O system is realized.


Universal and flexible in use, the portfolio features the widest range of functions from IO-Link master, digital and analog inputs and outputs, right through to safety modules and other function modules. With the low level of configuration effort needed for commissioning and in the event of replacement, the Axioline Smart Elements are less prone to errors reducing the time needed for commissioning. The large conductor cross-section of 0.0023 in2 (1.5 mm2) with ferrule and plastic collar for I/O signals ensures low voltage drops, even over longer conductor lengths.

  • Compact Device Design: 8 or 16 terminal points on a footprint of 0.6 x 2.4 in. (15 x 62 mm), conductor cross section 0.0023 in2 (1.5 mm2) with ferrule incl. plastic collar, pitch 0.14 in. (3.5 mm)
  • Push-In Connection Technology: tool-free conductor connection
  • System-Free Interface: enables the widest range of solution concepts
  • Manual Unlocking Mechanism: quick and easy mounting
  • Space savings in the installation without limitation of the conductor cross-section of 0.0023 in2 (1.5 mm2)
  • Enable a broad range of applications and easy commissioning with reduced configuration work
  • Reduced signal line installation times with Push-in Technology
