The Stride Field Remote I/O Modules are simple and compact. They provide an economical means to connect inputs and outputs to an Ethernet Modbus TCP communication network. Every module operates as a standalone Modbus TCP server and can be configured via a built-in web server.
We will be looking at the following two Stride Remote IO Modules:
SIO-MB12CDR – Ethernet Modbus TCP Remote IO
– STRIDE discrete combo remote module, Input: 8-point, 12-24 VDC, sinking, Output: 4-point, relay, (4) Form C (SPDT) relays, 2A/point, (1) Ethernet (RJ45) port(s), Modbus TCP server.
SIO-MB04ADS – Ethernet Modbus TCP Remote IO
– STRIDE analog remote input module, 4-channel, current/voltage, 16-bit, isolated, input current signal range(s) of +/- 20 mA, input voltage signal range(s) of +/- 10 VDC, (1) Ethernet (RJ45) port(s), Modbus TCP server, external 20-30 VDC required.
We will be unboxing both of these units. Powering and then setting them up (configuring) via the webserver. Let’s get started. Continue Reading!
