ES2163: Ethernet Analog Input Modules Description

These EtherStax I/O modules provide a rugged, high-density, and high-speed solution to interface a large quantity of analog input signals to SCADA and distributed I/O systems. Each unit converts up to 64 single-ended analog current signals from various sensors and instruments for transmission to an Ethernet-based control network. Typical applications include process control, automated manufacturing, remote data acquisition, test and measurement, embedded computing, and supervisory monitoring systems.

EtherStax units are built and tested to deliver high reliability and dependable performance in hostile environments. Many features help increase reliability, improve performance and protect from harsh environments. Available in an aluminum enclosure or as an open circuit board, both formats stack vertically to maintain a very small footprint.
