I-7000 and M-7000 remote I/O modules provide cost-effective protection and conditioning for a wide range of valuable industrial control system. The product line includes sensor-tocomputer, computer-to-sensor, digital I/O, timer/counter, RS-232 to RS-485 converter, USB to RS-485 converter, RS-485 repeater, RS-485 hub and RS-232/422/485 to Fiber Optics. I-7000 supports DCON protocol, and M-7000 modules support Modbus RTU and DCON protocols. Many SCADA/HMI software and PLCs support Modbus RTU protocol. It is easy for them to integrate with M-7000 modules.
I-8K Series VS I-87K Series
There are two types of I/O modules, Parallel and Serial. The parallel modules (I-8K Series) are high-speed modules and support MCU (Main Control Unit) only. The serial modules (I-87K Series) can support either MCU or I/O expansion unit.
I-9K and I-97K series modules are provided for combining a variety of I/O functions within the WP-9000, XP-9000, LX-9000 and LP-9000 programmable automation controllers (PAC). The I-9k series is based on a parallel interface with high communication speed; while the I-97K series is based on a serial interface.
