High-density Ethernet IP communication coupler features ODVA authorization

APAX-5072, a high-density Ethernet IP communication coupler from Advantech Corporation, links with any Ethernet IP master to easily build a reliable Ethernet IP remote I/O solution.


Advantech CorporationAdvantech Industrial Automation Group introduces the APAX-5072, a new high-density Ethernet IP communication coupler. The APAX-5072 features ODVA authorization, allowing it to link with any Ethernet IP master to easily build a reliable Ethernet IP remote I/O solution.

APAX-5072 features two RJ45 ports with the same IP address for building daisy chains, which allows users to connect remote I/O devices directly without an additional Ethernet switch. It also provides dynamic configuration that allows users to configure different channels with different types and ranges in one module. Moreover, leveraging the APAX features of high density I/O, flexibility, scalability, and hot swap functionality, the APAX-5072 is able to connect APAX digital I/O modules or analog I/O modules to build remote I/O systems for fulfilling PLC or control application needs.

The APAX-5072 coupler has large connecting capacity and able to connect with any Ethernet IP master, such ABB PLC, effectively allowing users to build cost-effective Ethernet IP remote I/O systems.
