ED-527 ETHERNET TO Digital IO 16 Outputs

  • 16 Digital Outputs
  • Drives high current and high voltage loads - Ideal for inductive, capacitive & resistive loads
  • Factory floor process control and automation
  • Supports Modbus TCP protocol

  • 16 Digital Digital Outputs and a RS485 Gateway Port
  • Control any output from TTL to high voltage high current industrial devices
  • Factory floor process control and automation, Integrated DIN rail mount
  • Supports simple ASCII or industry standard Modbus TCP
  • -30°C to +80°C Temperature range
  • Software APIs for Visual Basic, C# and more

Ethernet to DIO device: 16 non-isolated digital output channels. Outputs each group of 4 lines has its own common rail. Powerful ARM 80 MHz, 32 Bit CPU.

The device can be controlled over TCP/IP using the Modbus TCP protocol or simple ASCII commands. Additionally Brainboxes supply a suite of APIs and sample code to communicate with the device using Microsoft .NET framework Visual Basic, C#, C++, Java, Javascript, PHP and more. The device and be configured and secured from a web browser. The device can be installed as a COM Port on a Windows PC to give complete backwards compatibility essential for legacy applications.

Offers robust and intelligent 'control side' devices that provide the interface to systems on the 24V factory floor environment, commonly referred to as 'process side'.

The ED product range is designed for harsh environments. The digital output port line are implemented as protected output circuits, providing current overload and short circuit protection, voltage surge, overload and open circuit protection and over temperature protection to allow the widest possible usage and range of devices.

The outputs are good for driving hot and cold resistive loads, capacitive loads and inductive loads and are especially suited for loads with high inrush currents such as cold bulbs/lamps and motors. Typical applications are control and switching of AC and DC motors, Fans, relay drivers, pumps, Voltage Regulators and Battery Chargers, LEDs and Bulbs, Air Conditioning, Heaters and Solenoids.
