Where automation engineers find local automation solutions...
Ethernet requires infrastructure equipment such as switches for connecting a variety of different devices to the network. This is unlike most field-bus automation networks that use a daisy-chain topology, which presents a bit of a problem for Ethernet automation applications since, when connecting to Ethernet, meters and gauges must be formed in a “star” configuration. The ioLogik E1200 series provides an alternative to spending the time and money needed to figure out the best way to hook up your Ethernet switches. Since each E1200 unit has two built-in Ethernet switches, the E1200 solution is tailor-made for a daisy-chain type configuration.
A new daisy-chained Ethernet I/O concept is now available. The ioLogik E1200 industrial remote Ethernet I/O has two embedded Ethernet switch ports that allow information to flow to another local Ethernet device or connect to the next ioLogik in the daisy-chain. Applications such as factory automation, security and surveillance systems, and tunnel monitoring, can make use of daisy-chained Ethernet for building multi-drop I/O networks over standard Ethernet cables. Many industrial automation users are familiar with the multi-drop configuration typically used in fieldbus applications. The daisy-chain function on the remote Ethernet I/O ioLogik E1200 not only increases the connection
between machines and panels, but also lowers the cost of buying separate Ethernet switches, and at the same time reduces labor fees and cabling by a large percentage. For example, if a production facility contains 700 stations (20 points per station), the wiring cost reduction can reach 15% of the total implementation cost.
