Integrating process control, automation and enterprise systems will require the changing of the entire architecture of the control system. Today Ethernet remote I/O accomplishes this integration easily through the latest internet technology, so that it can remotely monitor the device status more flexibly.
Amplicon's Distributed Ethernet I/O modules are empowered by Peer-to-Peer (P2P) and free Active OPC Server software to connect seamlessly to SCADA systems and can perform as standalone products for measurement, control and automation applications. With P2P no additional controllers or programming is needed. With the easy-to-use and intuitive graphic utility, engineers can configure these modules in an extremely short time.
Our broad range of innovative Distributed Ethernet I/O products can handle any typical process signal, along with a variety of valuable features that allow process engineers to reduce wiring and labour costs, minimise the number of failure points and shorten the response time.
Modular Ethernet I/O comprise of a CPU module with non-volatile memory to backup or restore I/O modules configurations, Ethernet ports for long distance communication, a power module and a backplane with a number of I/O slots for flexible I/O configuration.
Depending on your application our engineering team can advise on the best solution for your requirement. If your application consists of process signals scattered around a factory floor some distance apart then distributed Ethernet remote I/O will be the best solution. However, if there are many different varieties of process signals in the same location and there is room for future expansion then modular Ethernet remote I/O will be ideal, as it offers open, expandable and hot swappable advantages over distributed Ethernet remote I/O.
