PASIO is the acronym for Power Automation Slice I/O. The flexible EtherCAT I/Os PASIO combine high functionality with a clever mechanic concept in an extremely compact design and can be combined as required.


  • EtherCAT interface
  • Compact design: width: 12.9 mm, height: 109 mm, depth: 76.5 mm
  • Easy module change by separation of wiring part and electrical part
  • Very fast response time of up to 20 μs
  • Very fast data transfer on the backplane bus of 48 Mbit/s
  • All modules have a simple, space-saving, staircase-shaped wiring level
  • The electronic module is changeable without detaching the wiring
  • The power module is included in the bus coupler
  • PASIO system does not need a terminator
  • The clamp terminal assignment is printed under the labeling strips
  • General isolation from electronic and installation level
  • Galvanic isolation between fieldbus and backplane bus
  • Electrical isolation between fieldbus and input/output level
  • Up to 10 A power supply for total current and up to 3 A power supply for signal and function modules

PAMIO is the acronym for Power Automation Modular I/O. PAMIO modules utilize the PA-Superbus for communication. A Module Box consists of its housing, the PA-Superbus in and out plugs as well as two plug-in-slots for I/O modules. PAMIO modules can be snapped onto DIN-Rails and plugged into each other side by side or connected through optional cables (without additional bus couplers) in any fashion necessitated by the application. This way, I/O modules can be mounted where needed, without the additional cost of bus couplers. Each PAMIO module box has its own watchdog timer for the PA-Superbus, temperature and voltage monitoring as well as corresponding LED displays on the front.

The handheld operator station PA MPG100 provides a simple solution to the requirement for remote operator activities.  The dust and waterproof pendant (weighing 650g, or less than 1.5 pounds) comes with a flexible coiled cord that is terminated with a 26-pin round connector. The bulkhead mating connector, a mounting bracket set, and connection diagram are included.  This rugged pendant includes the 100 increments/rev manual pulse generator (MPG or Handwheel), a 6-position axis selector switch, a 3-position feed multiplier switch, 2 white pushbuttons (that illuminate) and the Emergency Stop Pushbutton (push in to lock, twist out to release). The white pushbuttons can be labeled and can be used for axis jogging or another machine functions through programming in the PLC.

This cost effective handheld operator station is available in 4 models. The IO model uses an MPG with 25 PPR and requires 2 (24V) Digital Inputs to create the pulse counter. The MPG in the Encoder model is a 100 PPR differential encoder that requires 5 Volts power, and generates the Channels A, /A, B, /B.   The body of the pendant is about 8.5″ long and about 3″ wide at its top, and about 2.25″ wide at its base.

Power Automation America has prepared a PLC application template that includes the processing of all the MPG inputs and outputs. It is also available for download from our web site.  Additional options shown below are cables with mating connectors attached in 2m, 5m, and 10m lengths for easy installation.

Spare parts for the Handheld Operator Station are available for purchase separately.  Please see Manual for a detailed listing.
