Remote Intelligent RS-485 Modbus RTU & RS-485 DCON ICP DAS I/O Expansion Unit
DCON Based I/O Expansion Unit
Remote Intelligent RS-485 I/O Expansion Unit
RU-87Pn series is a remote intelligent RS-485 I/O expansion unit that used to expand I-87K series I/O modules over the RS-485 for industrial monitoring and controlling applications. .

Modbus Based I/O Expansion Unit
Modbus is very wide known protocol in the industrial manufacturing and environment monitoring fields. It is suit master-slave or query-response distributed I/O applications. The unit is pre-installed a Modbus firmware.
Therefore PC, HMI or PLC can use Modbus/TCP and Modbus/RTU protocol to communicate with I/O modules in the unit via the RS-232/485 or Ethernet interface.Besides the slave I/O functionality, it is also a c language based programmable controller that equipped a DOS-like OS (MiniOS7). Users can use C compilers that can create 16 bit executable file (*.exe) to develop a program then download it to the controller. That let the controller work stand alone.
For more information, please go to the following web page.
There are two free charge version compilers (Turbo C 2.0 and Turbo C++ 1.01), we suggest users to use the Turbo C++ 1.01.
Using the software development toolkits that we provide can customize the firmware. The SDK provides rich functions for Modbus communication, such as Modbus/TCP master/slave, Modbus/RTU master/salve, Modbus/ASCII master, etc.
Modbus RTU I/O Expansion Unit
The iP-8000-MRTU series is a serial I/O expansion unit with Modbus protocol. It supports most of high profile I-8K and I-87K series I/O modules. SCADA and HMI software can easily access variant I/O signals via the unit.
