A built-in Ethernet switch makes it simple to daisy-chain multiple ILC 170 controllers. An optional SD card memory provides program transfer between controllers. The ILC 170 ETH 2TX  also has a 512KB on-board data and program memory and 48KB retentive memory. The controller has eight digital inputs and four digital outputs (500mA), with I/O expandable via Inline I/O modules. Additional features include an integrated real-time clock, PLC switch and support of up to three local remote bus branch modules. Programmable using PC WorX Express, a free programming tool that supports up to 4,096 I/O points, the controller also supports Modbus TCP for data exchange to any Modbus TCP-capable device.
