Industrial Ethernet NIM Designed for More Robust Environments


Downers Grove, Illinois (November 19, 2002) Contemporary Controls introduces an Industrial Ethernet NIM that is designed for more robust environments. The model IEISA-10T2 is suitable for applications needing to meet UL864 fire and smoke requirements and which complies with industrial EMC standards.

It links ISA bus compatible computers with Ethernet local area networks or fieldbuses. The IEISA-10T2 supports both the 10BASE-T and 10BASE2 network media interfaces via RJ-45 and ENC connectors respectively. Connection to either interface is automatically sensed and selected by the module.

The product features the popular Realtek RTL8019AS Ethernet controller. Because it is NE2000 compliant, it can take advantage of the numerous software drivers available for NE2000 compatible modules such as DOS, Windows 95, 98, NT and Linux.

Other benefits include full-duplex operation which effectively doubles the data rate when used with switching hubs and auto polarity correction on the receive lines to its 10BASE-T port.
Two LEDs are provided for diagnostic purposes.

The yellow LED indicates that the module is receiving data while the green LED indicates a proper link has been established with a hub or a switch.

Supporting both point-to-point UTP/STP and multidrop thin-net coaxial cabling, the IEISA-10T2 provides the flexibility for Industrial Ethernet applications.

Availability is December.
