    PLC Interface: EtherNet/IP™ Module 

     Ethernet IP Module 

     Simple interface between Orbit® and PLC using Ethernet/IP

     ODVA conformance tested

     Cyclic and Explicit Data

     

     

     

    Connecting EtherNet/IP™ PLC to LVDT type sensors is now easy. The EtherNet/IP™ version of the PIM is a PLC compatible EtherNet/IP™ to ORBIT®3 interface module, that enable easy connections between any EtherNet/IP™ enabled controller and Solartron’s flexible ORBIT®3 digital measurement system allowing LVDT type sensors to connect to a PLC.


    The PIM makes it simple to interface a wide range of contact and non-contact linear measurement sensors, rotary encoders, temperature and pressure sensors and discrete inputs and outputs via EtherNet/IP™.

     

    This stand alone, Din Rail mounted module provides one EtherNet/IP™ port and one ORBIT®3 port which can power up to ten LVDT type displacement sensors or other sensors;. This can be extended up to a maximum of 150 sensors with the use of supplementary power modules. The EtherNet/IP™ protocol driver supports the Explicit and Cyclic Messaging implementation of the protocol as a server. The EtherNet/IP™ port is a very powerful data transfer tool designed for easy connection to Rockwell Automation PLCs. Applications are found in many industries including manufacturing, automation and control, power generation and food processing.
