Remote I/O Module features flexible Modbus address mapping.
Press Release Summary:
With APAX-5070 Modbus/TCP Remote I/O solution, any PC, controller, or HMI device that supports Modbus/TCP protocol can add remote I/O functionality to access data and perform read and write actions. Unit features 2 RJ-45 ports with same IP address, which can build daisy chains to connect remote I/O devices directly without additional Ethernet switch. Modbus address mapping allows user to allocate mapping automatically or manually to minimize size of transferred data.
Original Press Release:
Advantech Launches a New Modbus/TCP Remote I/O Solution
(Cincinnati, Ohio) - The Industrial Automation Group of Advantech introduces the APAX-5070, a high-density Modbus/TCP Remote I/O solution. This Modbus/TCP coupler module allows any PC, controller, or HMI device that supports the Modbus/TCP protocol to easily and cost-effectively add remote I/O functionality to access data and perform read and write actions.
The APAX-5070 is equipped with two RJ-45 ports with the same IP address which can build daisy chains to connect remote I/O devices directly without an additional Ethernet switch.
The APAX-5070 features flexible Modbus address mapping which allow users to allocate mapping automatically or manually to minimize the data size transferred between APAX-5070 and Modbus/TCP master and shortens data response time. The APAX-5070 can perform alarms without a controller, only the help of a utility to control the output module based on input conditions, making it more intelligent. The APAX-5070 allows connection to digital I/O modules (max. 768 points) or analog I/O modules (max.192 points) with a large connecting capacity, effectively allowing users to build cost-effective remote I/O systems.
