Remote machine monitoring and control can be added. The unit’s three builtin serial ports and 10 Base-T/100 Base-TX Ethernet port let disparate devices communicate seamlessly. An Ethernet port supports four protocols simultaneously. Benefits include storing module configuration information, automatic reprogramming of replaced modules, support of 16 modular controller series modules, and hierarchical control of modules. A CompactFlash slot allows process data to be logged directly to CSV files (SX & GT).
