Distributed control and monitoring
Korenix UK has launched a new range of DIN rail-mounted managed Ethernet I/O modules for distributive monitoring and control. The new modules have a built-in OPC server and support Modbus/TCP protocol, which is commonly used in most industrial environments.
The Korenix Jet I/O 6500 Series is equipped with one RJ45 Ethernet port and multiple analogue and digital I/O channels, as well as temperature measurement (thermocouple, RTD) connectors. Users can therefore collect I/O data, configure rules for pre-defined alarms, automatically activate events (by SNMP trap) and change the status of devices through their Ethernet network.
The built-in OPC server and Windows-based management utilities mean that users can easily monitor and control I/O devices and integrate easily with SCADA and HMI software applications. Modbus/TCP uses encoded binary data and TCP/IP's error detection mechanism to enable temperature and humidity measurement, then communicating the result between the connected devices. Supported network protocols include IP, TCP, UDP, SNMP, HTTP, Telnet, BOOTP and DHCP.
