The ioLogik E1200 industrial Ethernet remote I/O comes with two switched Ethernet ports to allow for the free flow of information downstream, to another local Ethernet device, or upstream, to a control server. Applications such as factory automation, security and surveillance systems, and tunnelled connections can make use of daisy-chained Ethernet for building multidrop I/O networks over standard Ethernet cables. Many industrial automation users are familiar with multidrop as the configuration most typically used in fieldbus solutions. The daisy-chain capabilities supported by ioLogik E1200 Ethernet remote I/O units not only increase the extensibility and installation possibilities for your remote I/O applications, but also lower overall costs by reducing the need for separate Ethernet switches. Daisy-chaining devices in this way will also reduce overall labor and cabling expenses. For example, if a production facility contains 700 stations with 20 I/O points per station, the savings on wiring costs can reach as much as 15% of the total expense. Introduction › ›User-definable Modbus/TCP Slave addressing › ›2-port Ethernet switch for daisy-chain topologies › ›Save time and wiring cost with peer-to-peer communications › ›Active communications with MX-AOPC UA Server › ›Supports SNMPv1/v2c › ›Easy mass deployment and configuration with ioSearch utility › ›Friendly configuration via web browser › ›Simplify I/O management with MXIO library on either a Windows or Linux platform › ›Class I Division 2, ATEX Zone 2 certification › ›Wide operating temperature range: -40 to 75°C (-40 to 167°F) In remote automation applications, the control room and sensors are often far removed, making wiring over long distances a constant challenge. With peer-to-peer networking, users may now map a pair of ioLogik E1200 series modules so that input values will be directly transferred to output channels, greatly simplifying the wiring process and reducing wiring costs.
