Both the ioLogik 2542-WL1 and ioLogik 2512-WL1 feature 802.11a/b/g WiFi connectivity. The ioLogik 2542-WL1 supports analog I/O connections over WiFi, whereas the ioLogik 2512-WL1 supports digital I/O connections over WiFi.
Both ioLogik units feature automatic tag generation and reporting for connected sensors and devices. This helps operators monitor a large number of field devices efficiently. This function can also work in conjunction with the MX-AOPC UA Server on the cloud to minimize network bandwidth and latency. Data communication is protected with the highest commercially available security (WPA2/802.11i), which features advanced encryption and authentication.
In addition to WiFi, the ioLogik 2542-WL1 and 2512-WL1 both feature a 4-port unmanaged Ethernet switch and two serial ports for a seamless connection to a variety of field devices. The serial ports support data polling from devices using the Modbus RTU protocol. This data can be converted into Modbus TCP or AOPC tag format before sending it out over the Ethernet network. The units also support communication with multiple remote I/O devices under a single IP address. The slave Ethernet port can link up to eight daisy-chained ioLogik E1200 expansion modules and convert more than 100 channels to one IP address. The other three Ethernet ports can connect to any Ethernet-driven field device.
The ioLogik 2542-WL1 and 2512-WL1 can withstand -30 to 70° C (-22 to 158° F) operating temperatures. Both units offer industry-leading EMI protection and rugged, shock-resistant housing.
