The RuggedServer RS401 is an industrially hardened, serial device server with an integrated, fully managed Ethernet switch, designed to operate reliably in electrically harsh and climatically demanding environments.
iSeries controllers, panel meters, transmitters and signal conditioners connect directly to an Ethernet network with a standard RJ-45 connector, and can send and receive data in standard TCP/IP packets.
The Series PD high-performance temperature and process controller now features EtherNet/IP communications, making the Series PD much easier to integrate in machine and process control applications that include Allen-Bradley PLCs.
