The easiest and fastest way to connect input signals to remote outputs is to connect them over Ethernet and IP networks with ioMirror peer-to-peer Ethernet I/O servers. With ioMirror servers, signals can be transmitted over unlimited distances without requiring programming or a separate controller.
• Takes advantage of existing IP infrastructure Modern Ethernet, fiber optic, and wireless LANs already provide the necessary high-speed connectivity. General input and output signals can be connected through the existing network infrastructure using a pair of ioMirror servers, making wiring simpler than ever.
Example1: Ethernet network
Example 2: Fiber Ethernet network
Example 3: Wireless LAN network
• Configuration in four steps, without programming Unlike traditional solutions, a PLC or PC is not required as a controller in order to transmit input signals over the network. The ioMirror hardware handles all signal mapping automatically, with no ladder or C programming required. Input signals are easily extended over Ethernet from one server to another without requiring further programming or a separate controller.
• Powerful maintenance tools A series of maintenance tools are provided with the ioMirror to make it easy for engineers to maintain and monitor connections and I/O signals:
Hot-pluggable LCD attachment for easier on-site configuration
Local alarm for instant network fault detection
Remote event log for network status recording
Configurable alarm response for digital output signals
Remote I/O with PC
I/O Refresh Time
