Ethernet Isolate Input, Solid State Relay Output module
The ETH-IDIO-16 Series (4, 8 and 16 channels) is an ideal solution for adding portable, easy-to-install, isolated input and solid state output digital I/O capabilities to any Ethernet network. It is excellent for controlling external relays, driving indicator lights, fuel pumps, high voltage control and more. Typical industries are Automotive, Industrial, and Factory and Home automation.
This unit features 16 high-side MOSFET switch outputs and 16 optically isolated digital inputs. The isolated, non-polarized inputs may be driven by either DC sources of 3-31 V (or higher by special order) or AC sources at frequencies of 40 Hz to 10KHZ. Optically isolating the digital inputs from each other, and from the computer and network, assures smooth, error-free data transmission in noisy, real-world environments.
The input channels are accessed via a 34-pin IDC type vertical header. The fully protected isolated outputs are de-energized at power-up to prevent an unintended control output signal. Data to the solid state outputs are latched and are available via a 50-pin IDC type vertical header. To simplify field wiring connections, the ETH-IDIO-16 family includes an internal, removable termination board (ETH-STB-84), that mounts directly to the headers.
The ETH-IDIO-16 is designed to be used in rugged industrial environments but is small enough to fit nicely onto any desk or testing station. Its board is PC/104 sized (3.550 by 3.775 inches) and ships inside a steel powder-coated enclosure with an anti-skid bottom.
The ETH-IDIO-16 has a DC Jack and screw terminals to connect the required external power. This power can be provided by our PWR-ACDC-5V, your +5Vdc regulated power supply, or by ordering the –WI option where you provide 7 VDC – 30 VDC.
The OEM (board only) version is perfect for a variety of embedded applications. What makes the OEM option unique is that its PCB size and mounting holes match the PC/104 form factor (without the bus connections). The board can be added to any PC/104 type stack by connecting it to an available 10/100 Base-T port typically available on embedded CPU form factors such as EPIC, and PC/104. It can also be installed using standoffs inside other enclosures or systems.
Applications include Industrial Automation, Embedded OEM, Portable DAQ, Laboratory, Home Automation and Kiosks
