Use Legacy I/O with Ethernet
The G4D32EB2-UPG and G4EB2 make it possible to upgrade a legacy mistic or Pamux G4 digital I/O system on a serial network to operate as part of an Ethernet/TCP-based control system without replacing or modifying existing I/O or field wiring.
Upgrading a legacy I/O system is an economical strategy that preserves the investment of time and money made over many years in the I/O and field wiring. The I/O processors are upgrades for legacy G4D32RS and B4 digital I/O processors, or "brains," used in legacy mistic and Pamux digital I/O systems, respectively. When upgraded with a new I/O processor, digital I/O points on the original I/O system can be accessed over a standard, nonproprietary Ethernet network, and can be included as part of a control program running on one of the company's programmable automation controllers (PACs) or as part of a custom software application running on a PC. The units support multiple Ethernet protocols including OptoMMP, Modbus/TCP, and EtherNet/IP, while a standard TCP/IP interface is used with the company's software development kits and developer toolkits.
