The BusWorks® XT Series of Ethernet I/O modules with XT1210 and XT1220 models provide an 8-channel interface for analog voltage or current input signals and Ethernet/IP, Modbus/TCP, Profinet, or peer-to-peer communication. Differential inputs reject noise for reliable measurements when radio frequency or electromagnetic interference is present. Internal software manages network traffic loads for more reliable messaging.
The design features dual Ethernet ports, removable front-facing terminal blocks, and DIN rail power bus support. Its USB-to-PC connection makes configuration fast and simple with free Windows software. Suitable for use in harsh environments, all modules operate from -40 to 70°C with high voltage isolation, surge protection, and CE approval. UL/cUL Class 1 Division 2 Zone 2 hazardous location approval is pending.
The XT1210 model accepts current inputs of 0-20mA, 4-20mA, ±20mA DC, or 0-20 amps AC with an optional toroid sensor. The XT1220 accommodates ±5 V, ±10 V, 0-5 V, or 0-10 VDC input ranges. All units run off a 12- 32 VDC power source (2.8W) at the terminals or through an integrated power connector bussed along the DIN rail that can provide primary or redundant power.
