Digital Inputs

  • Input Channels: 8 non-isolated input channels
  • NPN/PNP: One jumper configures all inputs as either pull up for NPN, active low,
  • type sensors or pull down for PNP, active high, type sensors
  • Logic Level 0: 0V to +1V
  • Logic Level 1: +3.5V to +30V
  • Latched Inputs: Triggered by user programmable positive or negative edges, stays true until acknowledged
  • Counter Inputs: User programmable- counts positive or negative transitions 0-65335

Ethernet to DIO Device Server
  • The Ethernet to Digital IO (DIO) device is implemented using a Windows COM port driver
  • This COM port driver is completely compatible with all popular PC packages such as LabView, MATLAB and Agilent VEE and
  • supports a range of popular APIs.
  • Continue to get value from your existing development and process control system.

Gateway RS485 Serial Port

  • 1 x Half-duplex RS485 port
  • Supports connection and control of any RS485 compatible equipment
  • Supports communications with industry standard NuDAM, eDAM and ADAM modules using ASCII protocols.
  • Tx FIFO Size: 2048, Rx FIFO Size: 2048
  • Operating Distance: RS422/485 Standard (4000 ft : 1200 metres)

Brainboxes' Easy Wire Feature

  • Removable high-quality screw terminal blocks make cable installation easier
  • Colour-coded terminal blocks and ports prevents incorrect connections
  • Numbered Pins simplifies wiring and helps to remove confusion

Wide Range Redundant Dual Power Input

  • Power supply input range: +5VDC to +30VDC
  • Accommodates variation in the +24VDC factory floor and allows alternative power sources.
  • A second power supply can be fitted as a back-up to prevent down time should one power source fail.
  • Can use 5 Volt power from any computer USB port via optional accessory cable PW-650 - Useful for configuring the device from a laptop in the field.

Grounding

  • Correctly wired grounds help cut down on electromagnetic interference
  • 5-pin terminals allow a ground on the 5th pin of each block Functional earth connection to the DIN rail

Multi-Platform Software designed for the factory floor

  • Designed for Industry Standard Packages
  • Configure, monitor and control using LabView, MATLAB or Agilent VEE.
  • Brainboxes Ethernet IO devices can be configured, monitored and controlled using a Windows COM port driver.
  • The COM port is completely compatible with all popular PC packages such as LabView, MATLAB and Agilent VEE.
  • Continue to get value from your existing development and process control system.

Extended Temperature Range

  • Temperature range: -30C to +80C
  • This Extended Temperature operating range copes with changing temperatures for harsh environments found in industrial environments
  • It is possible to monitor the CPU temperature via the web interface or programmatically using ASCII commands

Watchdog feature

  • Allows independent known good states to be set for power up and comms link watchdog and hardware watchdog
  • Programmable time range allows full control.

Slim Shape

  • Small foot print for when DIN rail space is a premium
  • Only 22.6mm wide

Product support
  • Warranty Lifetime - online registration required
  • Support Lifetime: Web, Email and Phone Support from fully qualified, friendly staff who work in and alongside the Product Development Team

Approvals
  • Industry Approvals:  CCC-Mark, C-Tick, Microsoft Certified Gold Partner, WEEE, RoHS, METL
  • Microsoft Approvals: AEO (C-TPAT)
  • Microsoft Signed Drivers: Windows Vista / 7 / 8 / Windows Server 2008

Typical applications
  • Interfacing any industrial control process to Ethernet
  • Interfacing legacy control equipment to Ethernet
