New cable foe Ethernet

New cable brings Ethernet communication to 3B and 5B analog signal conditioning modules

Users of the popular 3B and 5B isolated signal conditioning modules can now connect to Acromag’s BusWorks® 958EN or several of their EtherStax® Ethernet analog I/O modules for an easy interface to remote control networks. The new 4001-110 cable provides a DB25 male to 26-pin female IDC ribbon cable connection which interfaces a rack of up to 16 3B or 5B modules providing conditioned voltage signals from analog sensors to the Ethernet I/O modules. Converting the signal conditioners’ outputs to digital data, the Ethernet I/O modules can provide Modbus TCP/IP communication to PCs, PLCs, and other distributed control devices. Typical applications include SCADA, process control, and test and measurement systems.

“Now you can cost-effectively Ethernet-enable legacy analog signal conditioning systems in just a few minutes,” stated Donald Lupo, Acromag’s Marketing and Sales Director for Process Products.

Acromag is an international corporation that has been developing and manufacturing measurement and control products for more than 50 years. They offer a complete line of industrial I/O products including process instruments, signal conditioning equipment, data acquisition boards, distributed I/O modules, and network communication devices.
