Sample code for a variety of PLC brands is available to help you connect your entire system and keep every component in constant communication for unprecedented hazard protection.
The IE-NODE operates by reading its sensor inputs and sending processed data when requested by another system (e.g. PLC). The units are equipped with an RJ45 Ethernet socket and supports PROFINET, EtherNet/IP and Modbus TCP/IP protocols for easy integration with Siemens, Allen-Bradley Rockwell, Modicon and other PLC’s or automation devices.
The IE-NODE’s network configurator software provides a visual view of all devices on the network. It allows for easy identification of each unit on the network and allows for network settings to be changed as needed.
The IE-Node carries certification for combustible dust hazard areas in more than 50 countries.
The IE-Node also unlocks access to 4B’s cloud platform for industrial monitoring – Hazardmon.com, a secure cloud-based hazard monitoring solution providing status notifications and data logging for bucket elevators and conveyors. Live system status, graphs and historical data can be viewed on any web-enabled device (smartphone, tablet PC, desktop or laptop computer).
