      Embedded Ethernet I/O Unit



     The I-8KE4 and I-8KE8 are embedded Ethernet I/O units using DCON Protocol Firmware.ICPDAS provides various I/O modules, such as analog input/output, digital input/output and counter/frequcncy modules, which can be used in remote data acquisition and control applications for environment monitoring, power management and factory automation, etc via Ethernet Port or RS-232 Port  .


The CPU is a 16-bit 80186-80 (80MHz). Apart from the original functions (input, output, power on value, safe value, high limit value, low limit value) of the I/O module, the firmware provides additional functions to allow I/O modules in different slots to be combined together. For example, if the channel value of an AI module is above a predefined high limit value, or below a predefined low limit value, the information can be immediately passed to another DO module to trigger alarm or light.

Various software development kits (SDK) and demos are provided, such as DLL, ActiveX, Labview driver, Indusoft driver, Linux driver, OPC server, etc. 

Although all the SDK drivers support only COM Port interface,users can also use there SDK by installing the VxComm Utility .  VxComm Utility can create Virtual COM Port to map the Ethernet Port, then the I/O modules can be easily added to the I-8KE4/I-8KE8 and can be quickly integrated into an existing system.

  Supports IPv4.
  Supports the  Ethernet or RS-232 communication interface.
  Supports DCON communication protocol
  Dual Bus designed to supports I-8K and I-87K series I/O
  modules, such as DI/DO, AI/AO, Counter/Frequency
  Compact I/O Expansion slot allows the quick installation of
  various 8K and 87K I/O modules
  By using the VxComm Utility, PC can use Virtual COM Port to
  communicate with the remote Ethernet I/O.

  Note: Remote Ethernet I/O must support XServer to have
  Virtual COM Port function.
  I/O configurable using DCON Utility via Ethernet port or RS-
  232 Port.
  Firmware updated via the RS-232 port
  Firmware auto scan AI modules and can map alarm to DO
  modules on the slots.
  Dual Watch Dog mechanism enable I-8000 system can work
  reliablely under harsh environment.

  Ventilated housing designed to operate between V25XC to

  Using DIN rail clips or Screw poles around the corners
  allows the control unit to be easily mounted on the control
  Frame Ground provides a path for bypassing ESD, allowing
  enhanced static protection (ESD) capability and ensures that
  the module is more reliable.

  Various SDKs provided ( free )
  DLL, ActiveX, Labview driver, Indusoft driver, Linux driver, OPC
  server, etc
