The APAX-5070 is a high-density Modbus/TCP remote I/O system. This Modbus/TCP coupler module allows any PC, controller, or HMI device that supports the Modbus/TCP protocol to add remote I/O function to access data and perform read and write actions. It has two RJ-45 ports with the same IP address, which can build daisy chains to connect remote I/O devices directly without an additional Ethernet switch.
The system has flexible Modbus address mapping to allocate mapping automatically or manually to minimize the data size transferred and to shorten data response time. It can perform alarms without a controller, only the help of a utility to control the output module based on input conditions. The APAX-5070 allows connection to digital I/O modules (max 768 points) or analog I/O modules (max192 points) with a large connecting capacity.
