EDAS-1000E Series Ethernet Data Acquisition Systems are stand-alone data acquisition systems that connect to and communicate over Ethernet (IEEE 802.310Base-T) Local Area Networks(LANs). They use the open systems environment of Ethernet and Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP, a standard networking protocol that provides communication across interconnected networks). These features enable you to integrate acquired data with your facility-wide or world-wide network, making the data available for use by other networked resources, or for further processing by personal or company software.
The EDAS-1001E-1A model combines digital I/O data acquisition functions (32 digital I/O channels and two counters) with a built-in processor, ROM-based executive firmware, TCP/IP, an Ethernet interface and an RS-232 serial port for communication with serial devices over the net (this port is also used for initial network configuration of the EDAS unit). The EDAS-1001E-2A model has all the same features as the EDAS-1001E-1A and it has an RS-485 serial port for communication with multiple RS-485 devices such as instruments, scales, machines or other computers.
