As manufacturing automation strategies embraced Design for Manufacturability (DFM), new automation technology advances and investments in industrial control systems led to distributed I/O, and, now, to enclosure-less I/0.

Explore the impacts connectivity and cabling have had on streamlining equipment and machinery, and the tradeoffs between enclosure-based systems and enclosure-less based I/O systems. This paper will help you determine when it makes sense to employ the streamlining capabilities of enclosure-less I/O.
