The new C441 Ethernet Series of communications cards lets users select from Ethernet/IP, Modbus TCP, HTTP Web services, and Modbus RTU communication protocols in a single card. The added communications provide OEMs, industrial customers, and machinery OEMs and panel builders with flexible communication options to configure, control, and monitor systems.

The cards are compatible with C440, XTOE, and C441 electronic-motorprotection relays, S611 soft starters, and can be used as stand-alone I/O.

Web services provide an easy-to-use Web-based GUI, making it easier to recognize potential problems. Using a laptop or smart device, customers can drill down to a given load by entering an IP address into their browser. With four levels of access, the cards ensure only those with credentials have access to critical or sensitive functions.

Problems can be addressed in real time with intelligent monitoring readouts from starters and four onboard digital inputs (120 Vac or 24 Vdc) and two discrete relay outputs. With a dual port switch, the Ethernet card allows for easy daisy chaining and reliable ring configurations.
