Modbus TCP Based Ethernet I/O Module with 2 Ethernet ports for daisy-chain networking, with 16 Digital Outputs and can be configured as Sink type. Communicable over Modbus TCP and Modbus UDP protocol, Supports operating temperatures of -25°C ~ +75°C (-13°F ~ 167°F) and has a din rail mount.
The ET-7242 provides 16 sink-type digital output channels. It features optical isolation for 3750 VDC of transient overvoltage protection and doesn’t have channel-to-channel isolation. The power-on value and safe value of digital output channel are programmable. In some industrial applications, the user can connect the output channel of ET-7242 to the RM series relay module to switch inductive loads.

Daisy-Chain Ethernet Cabling
The ET-7200/PET-7200 Series has a built-in two-port Ethernet switch to implement daisy-chain topology. The cabling is much easier and total costs of cable and switch are significantly reduced.
LAN Bypass feature guarantees the Ethernet communication. It will automatically active to continue the network traffic when the ET-7200/PET-7200 looses its power.
Account and password are needed when logging into the web server. An IP address filter is also included, which can be used to allow or deny connections with specific IP addresses.
Support for both Modbus TCP and Modbus UDP Protocols
The Modbus TCP, Modbus UDP slave function on the Ethernet port can be used to provide data to remote SCADA software.
Various I/O components are mixed with multiple channels in a single I/O module, which provides the most cost effective I/O usage and enhances performance of the I/O operations.
The Dual Watchdog is consists of a Module Watchdog and a Communication Watchdog. The action of AO,DO are also associated to the Dual Watchdog.
Module Watchdog is a built-in hardware circuit to monitor the operation of the module and will reset the CPU if a failure occurs in the hardware or the software. Then the Power-on Value of AO,DO will be loaded.
Communication Watchdog is a software function to monitor the communication between the host and the I/O module. The timeout of the communication Watchdog is proprgrammable, when the I/O doesn't receive commands from the host for a while, the watchdog forces the AO,DO to pre-programmed Safe Value to prevent unpredicatable damage of the connected devices.
Highly Reliable Under Harsh Environment
I/O Pair Connection
This function is used to create a AI/DI to AO/DO pair through the Ethernet. Once the configuration is completed, the I/O module can poll the status of remote AI/DI devices and then use the Modbus TCP protocol to continuously write to a local AO/DO channels in the background.
Power-on Value and Safe Value
Besides setting by the set AO,DO commands, the AO,DO can be set under two other conditions.
Power-on Value: The Power-on Value is loaded into the AO,DO under 3 conditions: Power-on, reset by Module Watchdog, reset by reset command.
Safe Value: When the Communication Watchdog is enabled and a Communication Watchdog timeout occurs, the “safe value” is loaded into the AO,DO.
