Moxa has enabled cost-free and effortless I/O signal reproduction over IP networks with their upgraded ioLogik E1200 active Ethernet I/O series with powerful new peer-to-peer technology that is available through CrispTech .
Huge savings can be made as the module can now connect I/O sensors to the ioLogik E1200 output module over copper, fibre, or wireless Ethernet infrastructure.
The series does away with noise interference, hosts, PCs, PLCs and controllers by duplicating digital and analogue signals over virtually unlimited distances.
The ioLogik E1200 has fast and easy cable replacement as it integrates many I/O signals over a single network. The ioLogik E1200 delivers multiple-target transmissions through Ethernet with up to 16 channels based on an emitter and receiver I/O pair through channel to channel mapping.
Fast and effective remote monitoring systems can be constructed with ioLogik E1200 series devices at the field site and control centre.
The output device is able to help detect network failures in ‘safe mode’. The function prompts the output
The safe mode protects from network failure and prompts ioLogik to displays a warning flash when the network disconnects. The output will then return to the latest signal status, or be set to a preset value, depending on the configuration.
Daisy chains of multiple network devices can be enabled with the built-in switch that comes with the ioLogik E1200’s two Ethernet ports. Daisy chains create the multi-drop I/O networks that are commonly used for factory automation, security and surveillance systems, tunnel monitoring, and other industrial applications. Alternatively, Ethernet ports can be used to construct a backup link to ensure network redundancy and stability.
The ioLogik E1200 supports push-based Active OPC server to achieve faster communication with SCADA systems. With Moxa's free Active OPC Server software, the ioLogik E1200 uses event driven ‘active tags’ to deliver SCADA systems with instant I/O status reports seven times faster than other OPC Server packages, and reduces bandwidth usage by 80%.
