The Busworks NT series from Acromag permits expansion I/O modules for what is said to be a high-density, cost-efficient remote I/O solution.

Base unit NTE Ethernet models handle the network communication and interface up to 16 analog or digital I/O channels for remote monitoring or control applications.

NTX Expansion models provide a way to add a mix of I/O signal types under a single IP address.

The NTE Ethernet I/O modules are pre-programmed to support Modbus/TCP, Ethernet/IP and Profinet protocols. Modules also support direct i2o peer-to-peer communication without a controller.

Link up to three NTX expansion I/O modules to an NTE Ethernet I/O module over the integrated DIN rail I/O bus connectors.

Users can also connect NTE Ethernet I/O modules with a daisy-chain topology using the internal dual-port switch to simplify network cabling, as well as have a built-in web server for convenient configuration without installing any software.
