Amplicon introduces the new BusWorks XT series from Acromag

The BusWorks XT series is a rugged, flexible line of Ethernet I/O modules that feature channel versatility that can reliably withstand harsh industrial environments. Rugged construction, high-density design and convenient USB programming make these instruments well suited for many applications, including remote monitoring, distributed automation & control and SCADA systems. The XT range is available as a discrete I/O (sink and source outputs), differential analogue I/O (current and voltage), single ended analogue I/O (current and voltage) and relay modules.

Features and benefits of the XT series include a compact space-saving size of 22.5mm wide with pluggable and front-facing screw terminals as well as offering a simple configuration using the free XT-CONFIG software with a USB to PC connection. It can also include two 10/100Mbps Ethernet ports to help reduce switch requirements and peer-to-peer Ethernet communication using i2o technology in Modbus units, which enables module to module management without having to use a controller.

The XT series is fully isolated on the I/O, network and power circuits, this gives safety and noise immunity. The BusWorks XT also has up to 1.5kV redundant power inputs via terminal block or DIN rail bus connector. Finally the XT series comes with a wide operating temperature range of -40 to +70degC.

Acromag is a customer-driven manufacturer focused on developing embedded I/O products that provide excellent long-term value in the automation and control industry. Products carry globally recognised agency approvals and safety certifications such as; CE, UL, cUL and Atex. All units come with a 2-year warranty.

Andrew Pook, Product Specialist for Measurement & Control at Amplicon comments: "The BusWorks XT series is a fantastic low-cost alternative to the renowned BusWorks 900EN series. You can be assured that the XT series still has the same proven quality and accuracy as its older brother.
