HMI Adds Second Ethernet Port

Sept. 2, 2010
The vendor’s G3 Series Operator Interface family is now available with the Ethernet expansion card, G3ENET, adding a second Ethernet port to increase bandwidth and separate networks. 
In addition to supporting ten simultaneous Ethernet protocols, the G3 Series HMIs with the G3ENET card provides unprecedented communication with devices on two distinct Ethernet networks simultaneously, says the vendor—without the need for an industrial router—saving both cost and configuration time. The G3ENET card is easily installed by using the supplied screws and a single cable, adding an additional 10 Base T/100 Base-Tx Ethernet port beyond the one already resident on the G3. The second Ethernet port gives users the option to isolate machine level networks from the enterprise network. “The addition of a second Ethernet port for communication on different networks is a first for dedicated HMI platforms,” contends Jesse Benefiel, product manager.Red Lion Controls Inc. www.redlion.net717.767.6511
