Control and Monitor with Sealevel eI/O-170E and eI/O-170PoE Multifunction Modules

May 3, 2013

Sealevel Systems, Inc. announces two new eI/O products available with and without Power over Ethernet. Featuring analog and dry contact inputs and solid-state relays, Sealevel’s eI/O products provide system designers with a compact, cost-effective alternative for monitoring and control. They are perfect for a wide variety of applications including process control, facility management, security, and broadcast automation.

Control and monitor eight 12-bit analog inputs, two optically isolated digital inputs, and two solid-state relay outputs via any 10/100BaseT Ethernet connection with the eI/O-170E multifunction I/O module. The module provides eight single-ended or four differential A/D inputs that are software configurable for 0-5V, 0-10V, +/-5V, and +/-10V ranges. The eI/O-170E receives power via a removable spring-clamp terminal block. The lever-style clamping mechanism requires no tools, which simplifies field installation. The module is powered by your 9-30VDC source, or select from a variety of Sealevel power supply options. I/O connections to field wiring are simplified via removable 3.5mm terminal blocks.

Sealevel’s eI/O-170PoE has all the features of our eI/O-170E module and is a Class 0 (IEEE 802.3af-2003) Power over Ethernet device. This allows power and data to be transferred over a single CAT5 cable and eliminates the need for an external power supply. With PoE, power can be supplied by power sourcing equipment including PoE injectors (midspans) and switches (endspans). I/O connections to field wiring are simplified via removable 3.5mm terminal blocks.

Sealevel’s SeaMAX software suite supports the eI/O family and is designed to work with third-party applications via the SeaMAX API. Sealevel’s SeaMAX software drivers and utilities make installation and operation easy using Windows operating systems. Standard operating temperature range of eI/O modules is 0⁰C to 70⁰C.
