Supervisory Monitoring and Control Made Easy

Choose from three Ethernet I/O Series; BusWorks® XT Series, EtherStax® Series, and 900EN Series for your perfect I/O solution.

BusWorks® XT Series Ethernet I/O

The BusWorks XT series is a rugged, flexible line of Ethernet I/O modules that features channel versatility with housing to reliably withstand harsh industrial environments.

Rugged construction, high density design, and convenient USB programming make these instruments ideal for many applications including: remote monitoring, distributed control, and SCADA.

Key Features and Benefits

  • Convenient Housing: 22.5mm wide with pluggable, front-facing terminals
  • Simple USB Configuration: Free Windows software enables easy setup with a USB-to-PC connection
  • Dual Ethernet: Two 10/100Mbps Ethernet ports with auto negotiation reduce switch port requirements
  • Peer-to-peer Ethernet Communication: i2o technology in Modbus units enable module-to module communication without a controller
  • Fully Isolated: I/O, network, and power circuits isolated from each other at 1500V AC for safety and noise immunity
  • Redundant Power: Accepts power via terminal block or DIN rail bus connector for simple backup power supplies
  • Wide Ambient Temperature Range:  Provides reliable operation from -40 to 70°C
  • Built Rugged: Shock and vibration resistant, with CE and UL/cUL, Class 1 Division 2 Zone 2 approvals

EtherStax® Rugged, Stackable Ethernet I/O

EtherStax I/O blocks provide a ruggedized, high-density solution to interface many analog and discrete signals to your control system. A stackable aluminum housing maintains a small footprint and stands up to industrial environments. The Ethernet interface supports Modbus TCP/UDP/IP for reliable host data transfer or peer-to-peer communication. Web-based configuration simplifies setup with any web browser. For OEM systems, or those that require specialized housings, an open-board version without the enclosure is available. EtherStax are ideal for a broad range of measurement and control applications.

Rugged, Industrial-Grade Design

EtherStax are designed for high-reliability operation. Units feature 3-way isolation and surge protection. The I/O circuitry has over-temperature, over-voltage, and over-current protection. Redundant communication paths and DC power ensure dependable operation. If network communication is lost, outputs fail safely and a relay provides local alarming or shutdown functions.

BusWorks® 900EN Series Ethernet I/O Modules

The 900EN series is a rugged, high-performance line of networked I/O modules. Modules feature universal input/output ranges and an intelligent microcontroller to provide extreme flexibility and powerful monitoring and control capabilities. Select from a variety of analog and discrete I/O models to meet your application requirements.

Each inch-wide module has a direct network interface, processes I/O signals on up to twelve channels, and handles power conversion. This space-saving approach is very cost-effective for systems that need to add I/O channels at an existing control site or network to new remote sites. By comparison, many “block I/O” devices would require a large, expensive processor block, an I/O rack, individual plug-in I/O terminal blocks, and a special system power supply.

The I/O modules are easily configured using your standard web browser. Each I/O module has embedded web pages to help you set up and control the unit. These web pages guide you through the steps to configure network settings, calibrate the module, and test operation.
