Signal converter AD-8552EIP

The AD-8552EIP performs conversion between the RS-232C signals of weighing instrument(s) and the EtherNet/IP signals of a control device (PLC). It enables you to easily establish a data communication network with weighing instrument(s) on a production line using EtherNet/IP.

Description

DESCRIPTION

The AD-8552EIP performs conversion between the RS-232C signals of weighing instrument(s) and the EtherNet/IP signals of a control device (PLC). It enables you to easily establish a data communication network with weighing instrument(s) on a production line using EtherNet/IP. Having four D-Sub 9-pin connectors, one AD-8552EIP can communicate with up to four weighing instruments via RS-232C cables, which saves space and cost. Furthermore, since it has two RJ-45 connectors, more than one AD-8552EIP can be connected to one PLC by daisy-chain connection via LAN cables (star connection through a hub, or a combination of star and daisy-chain connections, can also be employed depending on your production line layout). You can connect most of the A&D balances/scales to the AD-8552EIP, which also expands your choice, although a PLC can realize the widest range of operations when an AD-4212C/AD-4212D weigh module is connected. For some models, the AC adapter is unnecessary because the AD-8552EIP supplies power, simplifying wiring. Equipped with hooks on the back, the AD-8552EIP allows one-touch installation and fastening to DIN rails. Thanks to four LED lamps, the status of connections and operations, and whether there are any abnormalities can be checked and addressed at a glance. By connecting the AD-8552EIP to a PC, you can set an arbitrary IP address, operate connected weighing instrument(s), and display their weighing values and data layouts on a web browser. This is especially convenient for checking operations when starting up a production line or troubleshooting. Please visit A&D’s website for more information.
