Enclosure and Physical

Housing Classification and Dimensions: IP20: 8.226” x 2.444” x 7.25”, 4 lbs. packed. PCB: 7.920” x 1.875” x 7.25”, 1.65 lbs. packed.
Safety Approvals (pending): UL/cUL Listed
Hazardous Locations: Class I; Div 2; A, B, C, D
Open board units: UL Recognized
Shock and Vibration Immunity (in enclosure): Mechanical Shock: 50g (3ms), 30g (11ms). Random Vibration: 5g, (5-500Hz)

  • Fully isolated between all circuits: Inputs, outputs, alarm, network ports, enclosure, and power are isolated from each other for safety and noise immunity.
  • High-density stackable unit: Stacked mounting puts a lot of I/O in a very small footprint to save panel space.
  • Modbus TCP/IP or UDP/IP protocol: I/O functions as slave to host controller.
  • Peer-to-peer i2o communication: Inputs to one unit automatically actuate outputs on another over Ethernet link.
  • Channel-to channel input isolation: Inputs provide high or low-side sensing for AC or DC circuits.
  • Automatic change of state detection: Inputs detect quick momentary changes of state that occur between polling.
  • Logic inversion (i2o only): Active high inputs can switch remote peer-to-peer outputs on or off.
  • Change-of-state or timed updates: Event-driven updates transmit data in less than 10ms between peers with i2o.
  • 10 Modbus TCP/IP sockets/sessions: Multiple masters can talk to an EtherStax unit at the same time.
  • Local alarm function: Dedicated failsafe relay is controlled via watchdog timer and link-loss conditions.
  • Heavy-duty 2A relays: 16 SPST outputs provide high/low-side 2A switching up to 250V AC or 110V DC.
  • Programmable outputs: Normally open relays are configurable to energize or de-energize on power-up.
  • Built-in slave relays: Inputs can control outputs on same unit to provide slave relay interface.
  • Self-test checks I/O operation: Unit checks internal I/O communication and allows verification via web browser.
  • Watchdog timers: Communication fault sends output to a pre-defined state or holds the last value.
