Intelligent Remote Redundant Ethernet I/O expansion unit
The unit is the intelligent remote redundant I/O unit with Modbus TCP protocol. It can be equipped with 2 power modules, 2 communication module, 8 I/O modules. The unit offers redundancy options for various functions- ranging from power redundancy to I/O redundancy. Besides, there are most of I/O modules, such as DI, DO, AI, AO, PI, PO, HART and etc, can be used in the units. Only the F-8K modules can be plugged in the unit.
The most important features are
- Auto configuration
Each slot configuration can be pre-configured and stored in the CPU module, Once a module is plug in, the CPU module will write the pre-configured data to the module.
- Hot Swap
All F-8K modules circuit design allow it to be hot swapped. The unit don't need to power off while swapping I/O modules.
Support redundant communication, power and I/O function to enhance the reliability of the system.
- Open Communication protocol
Due to the Modbus TCP protocol, iDCS-8830 can be integrated in various PC/PAC/PLC system easily.
