Moxa Americas Inc. - 8DI/8DIO 2-Port Switch Ethernet Remote I/O WT
The Moxa ioLogik E1212-T industrial Ethernet remote I/O features an embedded Ethernet switch with 2 ports that allows information to flow to another local Ethernet device or connect to the next ioLogik in the daisy-chain. The ioLogik remote I/O device offers 8 Digital Inputs and 8 configurable DIO's. This remote I/O has (2) 10/100Base-T Ethernet ports and supports Modbus/TCP TCP/IP UDP HDCP Bootp and HTTP. Power input is 12 to 36VDC with 24 VDC nominally and is delivered via terminal screw block. The operational temperature range is: -40 to 75C.
Applications such as factory automation security and surveillance systems and tunnel monitoring can make use of daisy-chained Ethernet for building multi-drop I/O networks over standard Ethernet cables. Many industrial automation users are familiar with the multi-drop configuration typically used in fieldbus applications. The daisy-chain function on the Ethernet remote I/O ioLogik E1212 not only increases the connection between machines and panels but also lowers the cost of buying separate Ethernet switches and at the same time reduces labor fees and cabling by a large percentage. For example if a production facility contains 700 stations (20 points per station) the wiring cost reduction can reach 15% of the total implementation cost.
