FLEX presents the 1794-AENTR I/O dual port EtherNet/IP communication adapter modules, each designed to connect up to 8 FLEX I/O modules.
The FLEX 1794-AENTR EtherNet/IP communication adapter module includes two EtherNet/IP ports configured as embedded switches that support not only the conventional star and tree topologies but also the daisy chain and Device Level Ring (DLR) topologies.
The DLR topology provides a level of communication redundancy that enhances product availability while also reducing and simplifying network wiring.
FLEX 1794-AENTR EtherNet/IP communication adapter modules are also available in an extreme environment version (1794-AENTRXT) designed to operate in a broader temperature spectrum of -20ºC to +70ºC.
FLEX I/O is a cost-effective, flexible and modular I/O system for distributed applications, offering the functions of larger rack-based I/O without the space requirement. Users can independently select the I/O type, termination and network.
With more than 110 catalogue numbers and a breadth of speciality modules, FLEX I/O offers support for hundreds of applications and have been extensively installed by machine builders and automation end-users worldwide.
The FLEX 1794-AENTR EtherNet/IP communication adapter modules are available from Rockwell Automation
