Weidmuller adds EtherNet/IP coupler to u-remote portfolio
12 April 2015
A new EtherNet/IP coupler for Weidmuller's u-remote system allows connection of remote I/Os to EtherNet/IP networks. It has two Ethernet ports, and the integrated switch supports a line network structure.
The coupler can be accessed with a system-independent web server application, so all information, such as diagnostics, status values and parameters, can be read and all connected modules can be simulated or forced. It can be used wherever remote I/Os need to be connected to PLCs or control systems via EtherNet/IP networks.
Besides available couplers for Profibus-DP, Profinet, Modbus-TCP and EtherCAT, Weidmuller's EtherNet/IP coupler brings additional advantages for customers using Ethernet/IP networks in their applications. The EtherNet/IP coupler expands the u-remote portfolio and makes it more flexible and modular which means that customers have even more choice in terms of the fieldbus they wish to use in their applications.
