i20: The Easiest Way to Link Remote Inputs to Output Devices Without a Controller Using Ethernet Modbus TCP/IP Communication
Using i2o technology, many BusWorks XT, BusWorks 900EN, and EtherStax I/O modules have the ability to operate like a long-distance transmitter. Either reproduce your sensor inputs at Point A as 4-20mA control signals at Point B, or monitor a discrete device at one site by reproducing the level with a relay at another location.
- Transmits data to/from any PLC, DCS, recorder, or display device
- Reduced wiring costs as the result of interfacing many I/O signals over a single data line without a controller in between
Use Your Existing Ethernet Lines to Save Time and Wiring Expenses
You can connect the input modules to the output modules using either your existing network infrastructure or with a single new cable. Multiple I/O modules can be multiplexed through a switch or using wireless radios. Therefore supporting wireless, fiber-optic, copper and Internet media networks.
Split a Signal for Transmission to Two Different Locations
Need the input data at two remote sites simultaneously? Not a problem. i2o lets you map an input to two output modules.
No Complicated Controllers. No Software. And No Programming.
Acromag’s Ethernet I/O modules have a built-in web page, so it’s simple to configure using your standard web browser. Just click a few menu settings, enter the IP addresses, and after that you are done.
