Ethernet Base Controllers (H2-EBC, H2-EBC100, H2-EBC-F, T1H-EBC and T1H-EBC100)
Use EBCs for PC-based control and for H*-ERM remote I/O slaves
The H2-EBC, H2-EBC100, H2-EBC-F, T1H-EBC and T1H-EBC100 Ethernet Base Controller modules (EBCs) provide a low-cost, high-performance Ethernet link between DL205 I/O and your PC-based control system or WinPLC/ DL205/ DL405 CPUs using the H*-ERM module for remote I/O. The H2-EBC100 can also be used to connect your DL205 I/O to a MODBUS TCP/IP client (master).
The H2-EBC and T1H-EBC modules support industry standard 10BaseT Ethernet communications, the H2-EBC100 supports industry standard 10/100BaseT Ethernet communications,and the H2-EBC-F module supports 10BaseFL (fiber optic) Ethernet standards. All of the EBC modules are compatible with TCP/IP, IPX and MODBUS TCP/IP (H2-EBC100 only) protocols for flexible PC communications. The T1H-EBC100 module supports TCP/ IP, UDP/ IP, IPX and the MODBUS TCP/IP application layer protocol at 100 Mbps maximum.
Easy to use, reliable and fast! The H2-EBC(-F) and H2-EBC100 modules plug into the CPU slot of any DL205 I/O base and support all DL205 discrete and analog I/O modules, and the H2-SERIO and H2-CTRIO specialty modules. All EBC modules can be configured using NetEdit3, a free Windows software utility. The H2-EBC100 also supports HTML configuration.
Off-the-shelf solutions You can purchase PC-based control software that is ready to use with the H2-EBC100 or H2-EBC(-F) module. PC-based control packages are equipped with compatible I/O device drivers, program development tools, and run-time environments. See the "PC-based Control Products" section of our Web site for a single-source integrated PC-based control solution that ships with everything you need to make your PC into an industrial controller. Most of the software packages allow you to connect serial devices, such as barcode readers, to the H2-EBC100 or H2-EBC(-F) serial port.
