Complementary Distributed I/O and Data Communication Systems Accessories
 

Ethernet Switches (Switching Hubs)
Intelligent multi-port communications switches automatically determine and remember where a NET Concentrator System® Station is located, and routs messages only through the appropriate port to that Station. This minimizes network loading and improves deterministic communications over Ethernet.

Ethernet Hubs
Enables multiple NET Concentrator System® stations or other compatible devices to be connected on a common Ethernet data link.

Ethernet Routers
Connects multiple NET Concentrator System® segments or sub-networks, forwards messages from one network to another, and provides message traffic isolation between segments.

RS-485 to RS-232C/RS-422 Converter
For MODBUS (RS-485) networks, converts the RS-485 signal to either RS-232C or RS-422 standard to allow direct interface with a modem or computer-based systems, such as a PC.

RS-485 Repeater
Extends a MODBUS-communicating system's allowable transmission distance an additional 10,000 feet over its limit.
Wireless RF Modems
Where wires can't be run for practical or economic reasons, spread spectrum wirless radio (RF) communication provides accurate and reliable connectivity between sites. Distances between modems can be up to 20 miles, and repeaters can extend coverage even further.

Short Haul Modems
For MODBUS (RS-485) networks, the Short Haul Modem extends the a I/O system's allowable transmission distance to 10 miles (16km).

Dial-Up Modems
The Dial-Up (or Dedicated Modem) permits unlimited transmission distances over a regular switched telephone line or leased dedicated line.

Data Line (Surge) Protectors
Data Line (Surge) Protectors Mounts on a G-type rail next to the NCS to protect the data link from damaging voltage and current surges caused by lightning, welding, heavy electrical equipment, and switch gears.

Instrument Power Supplies
A complete line of instrument power supplies for mounting alongside and powering our Distributed I/O systems.

Redundant Power Supply
DIN-style, rail-mount module accepts two power supply inputs and provides an uninterrupted power source by passing the highest voltage.
