The BRX Do-more! I/O controller provides easy remote expansion for any Do-more! system. Add up to 16 remote I/O racks to your application using the DMIO controller, thatâs over an additional 4,000 discrete or over 1,000 additional analog I/O points. When using the DMIO controller, all I/O racks will be auto-discovered and seen as native I/O to the system allowing for instant configuration.
The BRX Ethernet Base Controller can be used to expand any system using DirectLOGIC H2-ERM100s/H4-ERM100s, any Do-more! system, and can also be used as a Modbus TCP Server. Up to 16 remote EBC100 racks can be used with DirectLOGIC or Do-more! systems and 247 EBC100 racks can be added when using Modbus TCP. That is over an additional 63,000 discrete I/O points! The remote I/O will be seen as native to the system unless using Modbus TCP, then the Modbus Read/Write instructions are required for receiving/sending I/O data.
The BRX Modbus I/O slave controller allows any system with a Modbus master/client to expand its I/O capacity. Supporting both Modbus RTU and Modbus TCP protocols, this controller provides up to 31 additional Modbus RTU remote I/O racks and 247 additional Modbus TCP remote I/O racks. With the Modbus TCP option, over 63,000 extra discrete I/O points are possible. When using the MBIO slave controller, I/O data is sent to/from the master using Modbus Read/Write commands. The MBIO slave controller is great for remote expansion with other AutomationDirect PLCs or as a low-cost alternative for 3rd party controllers that support Modbus mastering.
