Product short description:
  • 32-channel differential analog voltage input with uB interface
  • Modbus TCP/IP or UDP/IP communication

These EtherStax I/O units provide a rugged, high-density, and high-speed solution to interface a large quantity of analog input signals. Units natively accept 32 differential high-level analog voltage inputs, which are ideal for most sensor interface applications in remote zones. For systems requiring high channel-to-channel isolation or a variety of input signals (voltage, current, temperature, frequency, load cell, etc.), the ES2162 has two ports that will each interface 16 inputs from a microBlox® uB signal conditioner backpanel.

These EtherStax I/O units provide a rugged, high-density, and high-speed solution to interface a large quantity of analog input signals. Units natively accept 32 differential high-level analog voltage inputs, which are ideal for most sensor interface applications in remote zones. For systems requiring high channel-to-channel isolation or a variety of input signals (voltage, current, temperature, frequency, load cell, etc.), the ES2162 has two ports that will each interface 16 inputs from a microBlox® uB signal conditioner backpanel. Available in an aluminum enclosure or as an open circuit board, both packages stack vertically to maintain a very small footprint. Many other features help increase reliability, improve performance and protect from harsh industrial environments.
