Application Possibilities

iPIO is simple to install and easy to use, but enables you to develop highly flexible telemetry systems. We can also work with you to tailor custom and OEM applications for your specific needs.

iPIO - Bidirectional Event Transport

iPIO gives you the ability to transport digital I/O across Ethernet networks with IP protocols. Multiple iPIO devices can communicate amongst themselves to transport I/O information across your network, and links are bidirectional, so events in either location are reflected at any other site. Any changes in status appear at the other end of the network as relay outputs. 2 Units are required for End-to-End transport. See Discount on Paired Units.

iPIO - Network Monitor and Control

Get real time status updates on you web browser and click to control any relay. Monitor and control digital I/O worldwide using an SNMP V2 compliant manager. iPIO also sends email when events occur.

iPIO - Multi Site Event Reporting

One digital input can trigger relay controls at multiple remote locations. With iPIO, one alarm can trigger events throughout your network, making it easy to respond to physical events and manage your systems remotely:

  • Climate Control
  • Industrial Control
  • Security Alerts
  • Firehouse Doors
  • Irrigation Systems

iPIO - Event Consolidation

Events from multiple locations can also be consolidated to a central alarm point. Digital inputs from any iPIO unit can be mapped to the relay output of any other, giving you maximum control:

  • Environmental Alarm Summaries
  • Storm Warning Systems
  • Security Alerts
  • Pump Controls
