CIE-H10/M10 is a remote digital I/O controller. And it is also equipped with ability to convert TCP/IP to Serial. So, those interfaces are various compared with other ezTCP.
[INTERFACES OF DIGITAL I/O]
Each digital input is interfaced with photo-coupler and the output is a relay. You can change the type of digital input to the "dry-contact" by using a Dry-Contact Adapter(DCA) which we've offering.
[INTERFACE FOR Serial Device Server]
DB-9 PIN Male connecter and RJ45 for Ethernet are equipped.
Then, is that means the role for serial device server and digital I/O controller are independent?
Yes, it is. However, recently we added a mode which is named "Serialized Modbus/TCP" for monitoring and controlling I/O ports through serial port.
In this mode, the data which has a format of Modbus/TCP frame is sent and received via RS232 port. When you make a program for communication with CIE-H10/M10, the information about this format is needed.
We think it will be a no problem to make program with this protocol, because it uses minimum class of that. Only two function codes are using and each master and slave has their fixed format.
Are there any sample codes or references?
We have been offering a sample code and technical document about the protocol. Please refer to them.
※ You can find them in the SUPPORT>Technical Data>Sample codes menu or each product page of CIE-H10 and M10.
