Ethernet IP coupler

May 1, 2011




The Advantech APAX-5072 high-density Ethernet IP communication coupler features Open DeviceNet Vendors Association authorization, allowing it to link with any Ethernet IP master. It features 2 RJ-45 ports with the same IP address for building daisy chains to connect remote I/O devices directly without an additional Ethernet switch, and provides dynamic configuration that allows users to configure different channels with different types and ranges in one module. The coupler can also connect APAX digital I/O modules or analog I/O modules to build remote I/O systems for fulfilling PLC or control application needs.
