Ethernet I/O Module with 6-channel Digital Input and Output

ICP Electronics Australia has released ICP DAS's ET-2260 Ethernet I/O module. Providing a variety of digital I/O functions, the ET-2260 module is an IP-based Ethernet I/O monitoring and control module. 

The module can be remotely controlled through a 10/100 M Ethernet network by using Modbus TCP/UDP protocol. Modbus has become a de facto standard communications protocol in industrial applications, and is now the most commonly available means of connecting industrial electronic devices. This makes the ET-2260 module easily integrated within HMI, SCADA, PLC or other software systems.

The ET-2260 provides six wet contact Digital Input channels and six Form A electromechanical Relays. With two Ethernet ports, the ET-2260 allows daisy chain connection, which enables flexibility in locating devices; easy installation and lower infrastructure costs. 

It features 8kV ESD protection, 4kV EFT protection, 3kV surge and 3000VDC I/O isolation to enhance noise protection capabilities in industrial environments. Each input channel can be used as a 32-bit counter. The power-on value and safe value of the relays are configurable.

The module can be used to create DI to DO pair-connect through the Ethernet. After configuration, the ET-2260 module can continuously poll the status of the local DI channels and then write to the remote DO devices via the Modbus/TCP protocol.

It is equipped with removable terminal block connector for easy and robust wiring in industrial applications, and features a powerful 32-bit ARM MCU to handle efficient network trafficking.
