DataProbe iPIO-8

8 Port Network I/O Controller

The Dataprobe iPIO-8 is a network attached, IP addressed digital input and output device. The iPIO-8 can be controlled and monitored with a standard web browser. Multiple ipIO-8 devices can communicate amongst themselves to transport I/O information across the network. Highly flexible telemetry systems can be developed with these simple devices.

The Status and Control web page provides real time status of the inputs, outputs and remote iPIO unit connections. The top of the page indicates the location reference, which is user settable.

Each input, output and remote device is defined by a user selectable name. Inputs and outputs can also be assigned names for Open and Closed statuses, as well as background and text colors for each. All configurations are accomplished via the setup tab at the top of the screen.

If the iPIO-8 is programmed to communicate with additional units, each remote unit will be displayed at the bottom of the page. Each remote site displays red or green, indicating connection status.

Dataprobe iPIO-8 Applications:

iPIO-8 is simple to install and easy to use, but enables you to develop highly flexible telemetry systems.

iPIO - Transport I/O Events Over IP Bidirectional GPIO Event Transport

iPIO-8 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.

Monitor & Control iPIO Over the Network

Get real time status updates on you web browser and click to control any iPIO relay. Monitor and control digital I/O worldwide using an SNMP V2 compliant manager. iPIO can also send emails 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 - Consolidate Events Across Sites

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
