 modbus network

SIMPLIFY REMOTE SENSOR INSTALLATION
Ion Modbus network nodes simplify remote sensor installation and help save on wiring costs. Directly connecting to PLCs, touchscreens and PCs, they offer high data throughput with less than 1 mS latency. Pluggable terminal blocks for power input, isolated 2-wire RS485 network port, sensor connection and relay outputs make wiring and installation minimal and easy.

 Etehrnet Based Distributed I/O

ETHERNET/IP-BASED, ON-MACHINE DISTRIBUTED I/O
The new 1732E Slim ArmorBlock digital scheduled output module can schedule an output in 1 microsecond increments, and trigger multiple outputs at intervals of 100 microseconds. This is useful in motion applications where higher resolution of outputs is required. By using CIP Sync distributed time synchronization, it can register any axis position within the system accurately with a single time-stamp.

 Temperature Concentrator System

LOW-COST TEMPERATURE INPUT
Temperature Concentrator System (TCS) reduces the cost of transmitting multiple temperature sensor measurements by concentrating up to 32 signals onto a single twisted-wire pair. It accepts any combination of RTD, T/C, mV and resistance/potentiometer signal inputs, converts them to the HART protocol, and transmits the data on an economical HART digital data link.
