Reciprocally, the 'Consumer' CPUs 'consume' (use) the data provided by the 'Producer'(s) CPU(s) as 'Input' data within their application(s).

In a nutshell, this implements automatic, high-speed 'I/O Class' (at user set RPI) data exchange between two or more Logix CPUs,

As far as I am aware, this is the only controller platform capable to handle data in a 'classic' I/O manner.
