Comtrol Releases DR-8-EIP Gateway

March 4, 2015 - Comtrol releases DR-8-EIP Gateway that simultaneously connects IO-Link devices to EtherNet/IP and Modbus TCP industrial networks.

The DR-8-EIP enables plug and play communication of up to eight intelligent IO-Link devices to EtherNet/IP and Modbus TCP networks deployed across factory and industrial environments.  The DR-8-EIP master supports the IO-Link 1.1 standard for full IO-Link device compatibility and provides Comtrol’s QuickLinx embedded IODD file storage application. The DR-8-EIP master features software and web interfaces that pair sensor and diagnostic information with the easiest setup in the industry.

The DR-8-EIP simultaneously connects IO-Link devices to EtherNet/IP and Modbus TCP industrial networks, providing PLCs, SCADA systems, or HMIs access to sensor process, event, and service data. It incorporates eight IO-Link ports, twelve digital IO connections and dual 10/100 Fast Ethernet ports for upstream network communication. Standard features include a comprehensive web-based user interface, PortVision DX configuration software, automatic device discovery and data storage, and simplified PLC integration.
