Industrial Ethernet networking for high voltage applications

01 June 2014

Brainboxes has introduced the ED-538, one of a new range of compact Ethernet to digital I/O networking devices designed to switch high current and voltage loads in industrial settings – particularly where equipment cannot be easily accessed.

With a power input range between +5V to +30Vdc, meaning it can run from a 24Vdc factory floor supply or a computer USB port, the ED-538 connects Ethernet communications to four galvanically-isolated Form A Relays, eight digital inputs and an RS-485 gateway port allowing users to monitor inputs and control outputs of factory floor machinery from any remote location.

As with all of Brainboxes industrial Ethernet to digital I/O products, the ED-538 has a temperature range of -30ºC to +80ºC, a built-in DIN rail mount as part of its compact design and an 'easy wire' feature that makes installation simple and fast with removable colour coded and numbered terminal blocks.

The ED-538 can be configured, monitored and controlled using a Windows COM port driver. The COM port is completely compatible with all popular PC packages such as LabView, MATLAB and Agilent VEE and works with legacy applications without compatibility issues. An easy-to-use, web-based user-interface allows the factory floor to be monitored from a smartphone or tablet.

The ED-538 has a manufacturer's suggested retail price of £199 (equivalent to US$329 or €249).
