I am looking for a remote terminal unit for manipulating I/O over ethernet. I am looking RTUs with input and output modules that have screw terminal on them so I can do some timing analysis. If anybody suggest a vendor, I will appreciate it. Thanks, Ratin _______________________________________________ LinuxPLC mailing list [email protected] http://linuxplc.org/mailman/listinfo/linuxplc

The only low cost (and that's a relative term) one I know about is optilogic by Optimation www.optimate.com. I was working on a driver for this but suffer from the time problem. They have their own protocol on top of TCP/IP and sent me some documantation which needed correction. Perhaps others know of other choices.

Hello all, I replied to Mohammed directly, but in case anybody else is interested - the company I work for as a software developer sells remote terminal units for I/O over Ethernet, among other things (industrial modems, industrial Ethernet switches, etc.) We are currently working on a Linux port of our I/O controller modules. See http://www.sixnetio.com/ for more information on products if interested. [Disclaimer... I'm not sure about the cost comparisons with other industry RTUs, but the modules are packed with 'features'.] -Amy -------------------------------------------------------- Amy Critchley - Software Engineer SIXNET "Programmable I/O for Windows" E-mail me at mailto:[email protected] Visit SIXNET online at http://www.sixnetio.com phone: (518) 877-5173 fax: (518) 877-8346 ------------------------------------------------------- _______________________________________________ LinuxPLC mailing list [email protected] http://linuxplc.org/mailman/listinfo/linuxplc
Contact WAGO (more info at www.wago.com). We have remote IO where you can select the required cards (from digital over analog to special functions, even with internal PLC functionality!). Most popular fieldbusses are available and the latest version is Modbus TCP/IP with ethernet connection !
