The ioLogik 2500 4-in-1 smart data acquisition system combines I/O function, an Ethernet switch, serial/Modbus connectivity and up to 32 GB of data logging into a single remote device.
Leveraging the Click&Go Plus logic technology to control the I/O array, the ioLogik 2500 helps reduce the number of system components and connections, and eliminates the need for extensive rewiring during a daisy chain expansion.
The I/O device communicates with multiple remote I/O devices under a single IP address, simplifying daisy chain expansion of industrial networks and providing efficient data acquisition, especially for industrial field sites that have an insufficient number of IP addresses. The ioLogik’s slave Ethernet port can link up to 8 daisy-chained ioLogik E1200 expansion modules and convert more than 100 channels to one IP address. Meanwhile, the other three Ethernet ports cab be used to connect to any Ethernet-driven field device.
Click&Go Plus control logic integrates patented Active Tags technology to uncover real-time data for critical applications, plus allows active messaging, email or SMS to provide real-time event notification. It supports up to 48 rules with further upgrades to 8 conditions/actions.
The ioLogik 2500 supports micro SD cards with up to 32 GB of memory, turning it into a datalogger for storing valuable data. With a built-in FTP server, important data from field sites can be accessed remotely by different systems. In addition, the two serial communication ports can be used to input data from devices using the Modbus RTU protocol, and then transform the data into Modbus TCP or AOPC tag format before sending it out over the Ethernet network.
Two versions are available: the ioLogik 2512 with eight channels of digital inputs and the ioLogik 2542 with four channels of analog inputs. A wireless version of the ioLogik 2500 will be released later in the year.
