The EDAS CE Base System consists of a Power Module and a CPU Module. Up to 12 I/O Modules in any configuration and combination can be attached to the CPU Module. Since each I/O module can offer up to 16 channels, systems with up to 192 channels can be configured. For even larger systems multiple EDAS CE units can be used that communicate with each other through Ethernet.
Communication between the CPU and the modules is achieved through an enhanced PC/104 bus. During boot time the hardware configuration and combination of modules is automatically detected.
Each module is housed in a robust aluminum enclosure. They are mounted on standard DIN-rails. I/O connections for the channels are provided on detachable screw terminal blocks located on the bottom of the modules.
All modules are isolated from the system bus up to 1,500 volts. Additionally the digital I/O Modules offer a 500 volts channel to channel isolation.
The EDAS CE can capture analog signals at up to 200 kHz, which is much faster than a typical PLC. This makes the EDAS CE suitable for applications such as vibration monitoring and sound analysis.
Photos and descriptions of each individual module can be found in the "Accessories" section of this page.
