ModuleX is an expansible I/O platform for industrial world completely designed and developed by the RedSmart BU of IDT.
Through a Modbus-RTU communication, MX-master485 can communicate with any electronic board or PLC handling, although we are about to release other industrial communication protocols (Profinet, EtherCAT, Modbus-TCP). Each master module can handle up to 16 slave modules forming an I/O cluster, actually 4 types of modules are available:
No software configuration is required; the master can be connected through 2 wires to any device with an RS485.
A cluster consists of 1 master device that can handle up to 16 slave modules. By adding or removing modules, the master self-configures dynamically, eliminating the need for intervention by an expert technician for reconfiguration.
The RS485 bus can be extended from each master, reaching up to 16 distributed clusters within a facility.
This allows for up to 2048 digital I/O points.
Our modules eliminate this step for installers by providing power distribution terminals for direct wiring.
This results in significant space, time, and cost savings.
Each cluster achieves a refresh rate of 10 mSec for 128 I/O points!
