The ES2151 and ES2152 interface 16 DC current inputs, 16 voltage inputs, and either 16 current or voltage output signals, respectively, to Ethernet devices or controllers with Modbus TCP/IP or UDP/IP protocol communication. These EtherStax units also Ethernet-enable input signals from a rack of 8B signal conditioning modules through a DB25 port to monitor a wider variety of sensors including temperature, frequency, and load cells. Additionally, ES2152 models have a DB25 output port to control 8B analog output modules. i2o technology enables peer-to-peer messaging. Fast, high-resolution 16-bit A/D and D/A scanning updates all channels in under 10mS. The inputs have a configurable sample averaging function and each channel has a non-volatile integrator/totalizer for additional signal processing tasks. On-demand self-test verifies calibration and a built-in loop-back circuit provides output validation to ensure high-accuracy operation.
