EtherNet/IP Gateways Feature Many I/O

EtherNet/IP piconet gateways are available with either eight M8 picofast or four M12 eurofast connectors, and provide four points of digital I/O. The piconet gateway has two fiber-optic connectors to add modules and increase the number of I/O points on a single node.

A new extension module is also available to provide an additional eight inputs and outputs, and the module’s terminal strips feature cage clamp technology for simple mounting inside a panel. Up to 255 extension modules may be connected to each gateway. The vendor has also improved its IP-Link fiber-optic communication system to allow up to 15 meters between modules. This enables users to encircle an entire machine with I/O using a single node on the network.
