EtherStax™ I/O series offer channel-isolated discrete I/O for high channel density plus redundant communication and power for use in critical applications and harsh environments.Channel-to-channel isolation protects against transients and noise.
ES2116, ES2117, and ES2118 models process 32 discrete inputs and 16 outputs with a Modbus TCP/UDP/IP interface to a host controller. The i2o® technology enables peer-to-peer communication between I/O units. Dual network ports support 10/100Base-TX copper and 100Base-FX fiber-optic connections with a redundant communication path for critical applications. Dual dc power terminals enable use of redundant power sources. An embedded web page provides configuration menus accessible with any web browser to eliminate programming.
Ten Modbus TCP/IP sockets allow simultaneous communication with multiple masters. The peer-to-peer communication supports timed and event-driven updates for a change of state in less than 5 ms. Hundreds of I/O points can be stacked in minimal panel space.
