Ultra Electronics’ EOTec 2000 multi-node MX multiplexer transmits up to 16 1024 input channels and unlimited output channels of bi-directional electrical information over a pair of fibre optic cables. Use it for remote data acquisition, emissions monitoring, data and signal transmission in hazardous areas, tank gauging, and conveyors.

The multiplexer’s base module provides input/output selections including 4-20 mA, 0-10 VDC and contact closure. It connects directly to the cable via Small Form-factor Pluggable (SFP) transceivers and provides visual indicators for power, global alarm, and module status as well as the fibre link status.

Each base unit has two transceiver ports that support 1,300 and 1,550 nm wavelengths for multimode or single-mode optical fibre. I/O modules are available in 2-and 4-channel versions, and all modules mount on 35 mm Din Rail.

An integrated backplane communicates from the base unit to the input/output modules without external inter-modular connections.

Programming isn’t required as input/output configuration is derived via a one-time dip-switch configuration.

Power is supplied through redundant external 24 VDC power supply terminals.

Ultra Electronics is a sensor manufacturer based in Round Rock, Tex.
