CONLAB Pty Ltd offers a new range of affordable Ethernet remote I/O modules, the RM200. This DIN rail mount is designed for robust industrial applications. It enables the connection of a wide variety of sensors, pumps and motors to remote computers or PLC systems.
Supported protocols are standard Ethernet (MODBUS/TCP) and RS485 (MODBUS RTU). Ethernet, RS485 and RS232 ports are all built in.
Each remote I/O module enables connectivity of multiple Ethernet devices via CAT5 cable up-to 100m away or even farther using fibre optic switches.
A wide mixture of digital and analogue I/Os make the RM200 family easy to interface to just about any industrial control system, for example, sample I/O - 2 counters, 8 D in, 8 D out, 8 A in and 2 A out.
