|DAISY-CHAIN ETHERNET I/O
Moxa's ioLogik E1200 remote Ethernet I/Os come with two embedded Ethernet switch ports to enable a daisy-chain topology. The Active OPC Server enables them to be integrated with SCADA systems. The user-definable Modbus address allows for the easy upgrading. With free Active OPC Server, the ioLogik can use push communication with HMI/SCADA systems to provide instant I/O status.
The Apax-5000 PACs integrate control, information processing and networking in a single control system with dual-controller architecture—one for HMI/SCADA, recipe, database and communication and the other for SoftLogic I/O tasks. The I/O modules can be either local or remote and can be to be hot-swapped. Clamp-type terminal blocks provide high resistance to shock vibration.
|PLUGGABLE TERMINAL BLOCK
The X-Coms Pluggable Connector System merges touch-proof, pre-wired assemblies with TopJobs terminal blocks. The system consists of pluggable connectors that mount onto DIN-rail blocks using Cage Clamps connections. Terminations use direct, push-in termination of solid conductors; for other conductor styles, use screwdriver to open clamping unit and insert conductor.
|THIS MODULE'S A SNAP
The SNAP-AIPM-3 I/O module measures volts AC RMS and amps AC RMS. It calculates true power, volt-amps and power sums for all three phases of power and can play a key role in monitoring overall power usage and energy consumption. It is transformer- and optically isolated from connected equipment and devices and from other modules on shared I/O racks. It also comes with a life-time guarantee.
|A COMPACT I/O FAMILY
The BL Compact system is a modular I/O solution for collecting signals in a single, rugged node on a network.
