Pepperl+Fuchs (Twinsburg, OH) introduces ETHERNET Remote I/O, a new Ethernet communication gateway and backplane for the company’s established LB/FB remote I/O system. The gateway and backplane enable the remote I/O system to speak a new communication protocol, building a virtual bridge between traditional field instruments and Modbus TCP-based Ethernet with data transfer rates up to 100 Mb/s. The modules support:
- NAMUR type inputs.
- Switching signals and solenoid valve outputs.
- Temperature inputs.
