How IP-based Connectivity Saves Energy
Easy Seamless Connections
Environment monitoring systems consist of many different devices that need to be monitored with different interfaces. The ioLogik 2500 is an ideal Modbus gateway since it can convert between serial interfaces (Modbus RTU) and Ethernet interfaces (Modbus TCP). In addition, the serial data (Modbus RTU) can be managed with MX-AOPC tags that can be further integrated with MX-AOPC UA server for use in an existing SCADA system.
NPort serial device servers can be used to connect some serial devices directly to an Ethernet network. For example, electricity, water, and gas meters, which provide data for billing purposes, could be connected in this way, as well as access control devices, which need to access a central database to verify that an ID swipe card is valid. By using an existing Ethernet network, serial signals from serial devices can be transferred without additional wiring effort.
