Bedrock Automation SIO4.E software-configurable Ethernet I/O module
The SIO4.E software-configurable five-channel Ethernet I/O module plugs into the Bedrock pinless electromagnetic backplane to receive Black Fabric cybersecurity protection. Each of the module’s five I/O channels is independently software-configurable. The initial library of Ethernet protocols includes Ethernet IP, Modbus TCP and OPC UA on TCP IP. All channels deliver Power over Ethernet. Coupling Ethernet into the process control and I/O network enables deployment of a range of edge device and enterprise data into real-time control logic. This results in real-time communication channels for the exchange of data between OT production and IT enterprise systems.
