Brainboxes ED series of devices provide a wide variety of functionality allowing you to automate a very broad range of tasks in process control, data collection, food preparation, packaging, warehousing and industrial manufacturing by connecting “real world" field devices over Ethernet to the controller PC. The ubiquitous nature of Ethernet and its adoption as the Industrial backbone connection of choice make the Brainboxes ED devices the future proof choice of professionals around the world.
Virtually any type of sensor or transducer can be connected through the appropriate ED device and have its data brought onto the network. The ED devices cover digital inputs, digital outputs, counters, analogue voltage & current sensor inputs, analogue outputs, programmable relays and multi axis stepper motor controllers. Dedicated products for thermocouples and RTDs fill out the range. The sensors and actuators may be dispersed across a large facility but by using Brainboxes ED devices the Ethernet connection to far flung remote devices is a straight forward as controlling devices on the next bench.
Digital sensors connect to input devices such as push buttons, switches, Volt free contacts, proximity switches, PNP/NPN sensors can be easily integrated into your network allowing your computer to sense the status of your operations.
Analogue sensors, both Voltage and 4-20mA current types, bring the whole range of continuously variable process data, such as pressure or temperature, into play allowing fine grained measurement of your process.
Barcode scanners and weighing scales are readily networked using ED serial ports.
Digital and Analogue devices can be controlled by ED outputs. Power can be cycled and devices powered up or shutdown remotely at will using ED relay products. Stepper Motors with 1 to 4 axes can be smoothly and easily controlled.
Signalling in the form of 7 segment displays, multi colour tower lights, indicators, sounders, alarms, cooling fans and HVAC can all be controlled from ED Digital output lines. Solenoids, motor starters and alarms can all be driven by ED digital outputs. Analogue outputs can control valve position, motor speed and air pressure, or update continuous displays such as chart recorder pens, variable intensity lights, sliders and other mechanical transducers.
Every ED device allows simple web page configuration from any browser and real time monitoring of your system from any Smartphone, tablet or PC, we keep you in the picture all of the time. With software that covers the favourite environments of today’s developers Brainboxes provide you with all the pieces to allow you to build and maintain your automated processes, providing data collection & monitoring to give you up to the minute, real time control and status in the palm of your hand.
Whether you are building a simple control panel or putting together an i/o system that tunnels across the internet and across continents Brainboxes ED range of Ethernet controlled Remote I/O products are perfectly designed for the job.
