I/O network module

Ethernet Industrial Protocol (EtherNet/IP) is conventional Ethernet together with a layer of industrial application protocol aimed at industrial automation. The application layer protocol serves as the Control and Information Protocol (CIP).

EtherNet/IP was designed with the view of overcoming the shortcomings associated with conventional IEEE 802.3 Ethernet as put in the world of industrial automation. With Acromag for example, you are provided with an array of choices to suit your particular requirement: Ethernet Analog I/O, Ethernet Multi-Function I/O, Ethernet Converters and Switches, Ethernet Digital I/O module, and others.

Ethernet I/O solutions' three series to select from

  1. BusWorks XT Series: Programming: USB designed with Acromag XT-SIP software; easy download and save the file as. Protocols: EtherNet/IP, Modbus TCP/IP, and Profinet.
