Ethernet Networking Device
Brainboxes announces the launch of the ED-549, a new Ethernet networking device designed for remote monitoring of multiple analogue inputs in industrial environments. Aimed at test, measurement and process control engineers, it is designed to remotely gather analogue input signals over an Ethernet network, the ED-549 ‘Ethernet 8 AI’ product has eight analogue input channels and delivers remote access to real-time data for highly flexible and high-precision measurements of voltages and currents from instruments located on a process control factory floor or in a laboratory. As well as the popular 0-10V and 4-20mA input devices, there is now a Programmable Gain Amplifier (PGA) allowing full-scale 12 bit readings from signals as small as ±75mV. Each of the 8 channels is individually configurable for voltage or current input with its own programmable gain.
