The Acromag NT2240 is an Ethernet Analog IO Module.
Firstly, the BusWorks® NT2000 Series offer a modular solution for Ethernet remote I/O Systems. Two module types are available. The first module is the NTE Ethernet model. It provides the protocol interface plus I/O signal processing channels. The second module is the NTX Expansion. It allows extra I/O channels when mated to any NTE Ethernet communication module.
Therefore, applications include collecting pressure, level, flow, temperature and other data from sensors, transducers or transmitters. The 0-10V is commonly used for automation and environmental controllers. The NT2240 modules offer 16 current inputs and each input supports bipolar and unipolar ranges using a 16-bit A/D Card.
Secondly, an isolated RS-485 bus links up to three expansion modules to the Ethernet module. Connectors join it to the DIN rail. An internal NT bus distributes power and communication between the modules. Allowing users to mix analog, temperature and discrete I/O modules across the NT bus. Direct Peer to peer or multicast communication between remote modules without master controller is available through Acromag’s i2o messaging technology.
Features of the Ethernet Analog IO Modules NT2240 include:
