The Industrial Ethernet Node (IE-NODE) is a Class II Div. 1-approved remote monitoring interface designed to provide sensor data to PLCs and automation systems.
The IE-NODE is available in two versions, both with a total of 10 sensor inputs. Version 1 has eight contact or NTC temperature inputs, and two pulse or 4-20 mA (current loop) inputs. Version 2 has 10 inputs for 4-20 mA (current loop) sensors. Both units can be expanded to 16 sensor inputs with the installation of optional expansion boards.
The IE-NODE operates by reading its sensor inputs and sending processed data when requested by another system (e.g. PLC). The units are equipped with an RJ45 Ethernet socket and support PROFINET, EtherNet/IP, and Modbus TCP/IP protocols for easy integration with Siemens, Allen-Bradley Rockwell, Delta V, Modicon, and other PLCs or automation devices. Sample code is available for Allen-Bradley ControlLogix and Siemens Simatic S7 PLCs.
