USA: Acromag's new BusWorks XT Series Ethernet I/O Modules interface discrete I/O signals directly to an Ethernet/IP, Modbus/TCP or Profinet measurement and control system network.
An innovative new module design features dual Ethernet ports, removable front-facing terminal blocks, and support for a rail power bus. A USB port provides an easy connection to a PC for fast configuration and setup with free Windows software. Two models offer sixteen digital I/O channels supporting any combination of inputs and outputs for monitoring or control functions involving discrete devices (on/off, high/low, open/close).
The XT1110 and XT1120 have sinking or sourcing outputs, respectively, and read-back capability to verify the status. Suitable for use in harsh environments, modules operate from -40 to 70 degrees C with noise immunity and surge protection. CE and UL/cUL Class 1 Division 2 Zone 2 hazardous location approvals are pending. All units are attractively priced at $320 in US or only $20 per channel.
