Inc.'s eI/O family of Ethernet digital
I/O solutions include five
different I/O models with a choice of optically isolated inputs, Reed relay
outputs and Form C relay outputs. All eI/O modules are available in Power over
Ethernet (PoE 802.3af) versions to connect to existing PoE networks with power
and data provided on one cable, or users can choose dc powered models with
9-30V dc input range. Ready for DIN rail mounting, eI/O modules include
a removable plastic clip that snaps onto 35mm DIN rail. The clip can also be
attached to any flat surface such as a wall or under a counter.
Communication with eI/O modules can be done by using
Modbus TCP protocol or Sealevel SeaMAX software. The SeaMAX software suite
supports the eI/O family and is designed to work with third party applications
via the SeaMAX API. Sealevel's SeaMAX software drivers and utilities
use Microsoft Windows operating systems. Standard operating temperature range
of eI/O modules is 0 to 70C.
