Eaton's C441 Ethernet series of communications cards allows users to select from Ethernet/IP, Modbus TCP, HTTP Web services and Modbus RTU communication protocols
Eaton's C441 Ethernet series of communications cards is designed to allow customers to select from Ethernet/IP, Modbus TCP, HTTP Web services and Modbus RTU communication protocols in a single card. It is made to be compatible with Eaton C440, XTOE and C441 electronic motor protection relays; S611 soft starters; and can be used as stand-alone input/output (IO).
Integral Web services are engineered to provide a Web-based graphical user interface (GUI). Using a laptop or smart device, customers can drill down to a given load by entering an IP address into their Web browser. With four levels of access, the cards are built to ensure only those with credentials have access to critical or sensitive functions.
With a dual port switch, the Ethernet card is designed to allow for daisy chaining and reliable ring configurations. Additionally, customers have the ability to use one network for control and another for monitoring – through the Modbus serial protocol used in parallel with the Ethernet network.
