Remote Access to Drives

Feb. 3, 2009
The SREA-01 Ethernet Adapter enables access remotely to the vendor’s low voltage AC drives.
If a process alarm or fault occurs, the internal Web server of the DIN rail-mounted SREA-01 provides an easy-to-use user interface for accessing the drives and other process variables. Designed to optimize the remote interface to AC drives that have a Modbus-RTU port, the SREA-01 can send process data, data logs and event messages independently—without a PLC or a dedicated on-site computer. The adapter can connect a maximum of 10 drives to an Ethernet or GPRS(1) network. Installing an SREA-01 in complement with drives can significantly reduce downtime, costs and site visits where drives are controlling motors, says the vendor.ABB Inc., Low Voltage Driveswww.abb.us/drives262.785.3502
