|DEVICENET COMMUNICATION CARD|
|York, PAOctober 31st, 2001Red Lion has created yet another winning combination, DeviceNet Communication combined with our popular PAX Series of Panel Meters. Make your panel meter much more than just a local display. Now you can access the display values, setpoints, and reset values stored within the PAX meter and communicate them via a DeviceNet bus. Combine this capability with the wide range of inputs and features offered by the PAX Series and you now have the ultimate answer for all your industrial panel meter networking applications.
The DeviceNet Card supports Polled, Bit Strobe, and Explicit Messaging. Communications setup is easy with a DIP switch located on the plug-in board, which allows programming of the MAC ID and Baud Rates up to 500k.
The PAX Series offers inputs for both Analog and Digital applications. The Analog Inputs include Voltage, Current, Process, Resistance, Temperature, and Strain Gage, while the Digital Inputs cover count and rate applications. Now, with the new DeviceNet Card, any of these parameters can not only be monitored at the machine, but the information can now be transmitted for higher level monitoring and process control.
