The i5500 wired Ethernet M-Module carrier provides complete Ethernet connectivity to the many industry standard M-modules available. The i5500 supports two single-wide or one double-wide M-module. The unit is available with a rugged steel/aluminium enclosure suitable for the desktop or rack installation or without the enclosure for application specific mounting.
A simple Ethernet command protocol eases software integration and allows M-module reset, identification, and complete control and configuration of the module. The carrier provides full access to the M-module I/O space. A flexible block access command speeds sequential data access.
MA-module triggers are fully supported allowing inter-module triggering and external input or output triggers through the 9-pin DSUB connector.
+12VDC external power must be supplied by the user through either a standard 2.5mm power jack or through the 9-pin DSUB connector. All other voltage levels required by the internal logic and the installed M-modules are generated internally. Variable speed forced air cooling helps maintain M-module and internal circuitry temperature. Unit’s internal temperature can be monitored to ensure safe operating levels.
The i5500 is available with or without the enclosure.
