Moxa Debuts Ethernet I/O Server for PC-Based Data Acquisition, Control

3/28/2006 - Moxa Technologies, a leading provider of Industrial Device Networking solutions, introduces ioLogik 4000, is designed to read sensor data, on/off status, and control on/off status of devices remotely over an Ethernet network from a host computer. Support for standard Modbus protocol makes ioLogik 4000 compatible with most SCADA software, such as Intellution iFix, Wonderware, and Labview. One ioLogik Ethernet Network Adapter can connect up to 32 I/O modules, which is equivalent to 512 DI/O points or 128 analog input channels. Over 40 types of I/O modules are available, including 24 VDC, 48 VDC, 110 VAC, and 230 VAC digital input/out modules, and 0-20 mA, 4-20 mA, and 0-10V analog I/O modules. Special temperature sensor modules are available, including models with RTD (PT100) and thermocouple sensors.

ioLogik 4000 is certified by PLC-grade safety regulation UL508. In addition, the digital output modules provide short protection, as well as over-current/temperature protection, The safety status is user configurable for digital output and analog output modules in case communication with the computer is interrupted.

Each Ethernet Network Adapter can receive data from up to eight different computers on the network for data sharing. For Windows programming, the intuitive MXIO DLL programming library is available for users of Visual Basic, Visual C++, and Borland C++ Builder.
