Ethernet DL205 I/O Base Controllers (H2-EBC)
Use EBCs for PC-based control and for H*-ERM remote I/O slaves
Ethernet Base Controller modules (EBCs) provide a low-cost, high-performance Ethernet link between DL205 I/O and your PC-based control system, or can be used with WinPLC/ DL205/ DL405 CPUs using the H*-ERM module to provide remote I/O.
H2-EBC modules support 10BaseT (10Mb wire) Ethernet communications, the H2-EBC100 supports 10/100BaseT (100Mb wire), and the H2-EBC-F module supports 10BaseFL (fiber optic) Ethernet standards. All EBC modules are compatible with TCP/IP, IPX and MODBUS TCP/IP (H2-EBC100 only) protocols for flexible PC communications.
Easy to use, reliable and fast!
The H2-EBC(-F) and H2-EBC100 modules plug into the CPU slot of any DL205 I/O base and support all DL205 discrete and analogue I/O modules, and the H2-SERIO and H2-CTRIO specialty modules. All EBC modules can be configured using NetEdit3, a free Windows software utility. The H2-EBC100 also supports HTML configuration.
You can purchase PC-based control software that is ready to use with the H2-EBC100 or H2-EBC(-F) module. PC-based control packages are equipped with compatible I/O device drivers, program development tools, and run-time environments. See the "PC-based Control Products" section of our Web site for a single-source integrated PC-based control solution that ships with everything you need to make your PC into an industrial controller. Most of the software packages allow you to connect serial devices, such as barcode readers, to the H2-EBC100 or H2-EBC(-F) serial port.
