A peer-to-peer communication technology from measurement and control
products manufacturer Acromag is providing a simple and reliable way to
communicate with multiple remote sites linked over Ethernet.
In a situation where customers have their operations spread across multiple
remote locations and linked over an Ethernet network, with each site requiring
discrete outputs, Acromag’s i2o peer-to-peer communication on the XT1111 Modbus/TCP discrete I/O module can send one signal from
a central control room PLC to be split and re-transmitted to the many remote
sites at the same time.
These modules interface discrete I/O signals between measurement and
control devices over Ethernet. Channels are individually configurable for input
or low-side switched output operation.
Key features of the XT1111 discrete IO modules include input range of
0-32V DC, TTL thresholds and output range of 0-32V DC, open-drain, up to 250mA;
Ethernet communication comprising of Modbus TCP/IP, Ethernet/IP, Profinet, i2o peer-to-peer,
10/100Base-T(X) PriorityChannel device determinism; power requirement of 12 to
32V DC (2.5W); 16 solid-state discrete I/O channels; and simple USB
Acromag’s XT1111 Modbus/TCP discrete I/O modules feature a rugged
construction, high density design, and easy USB-to-PC/Windows setup, all
combining to deliver a very effective I/O solution. These units are ideal for
remote monitoring, distributed control, and SCADA applications.
Models include: XT1111 Modbus/TCP and i2o protocol; XT1112 Ethernet/IP
protocol; and XT1113 Profinet protocol.
Acromag offers a complete line of embedded I/O products including bus
boards, mezzanine modules, wiring accessories, and software to serve diverse industries
such as military, aerospace, manufacturing, transportation, utilities, and
scientific research laboratories.
