In addition, the ioPAC 8600 enhances the hardware system architecture and key features of the ioPAC 8020 and ioPAC 8500 combined. It also adds an Ethernet bus on the backplane to support Ethernet switch modules. The ioPAC 8600 supports the C/C++ and IEC Overview Moxa’s 2-wire Ethernet technology offers system integrators an attractive option for upgrading the train’s IP network to a 10/100 Mbps* Ethernet backbone with existing 2-wire cable. This innovative 2-wire Ethernet technology supports Ethernet bypass functionality, ensuring that the Ethernet backbone will continue to operate even if one ioPAC is without power. As an added plus, with two 2-wire Ethernet modules in one ioPAC, the network can reach 200 Mbps and provide a redundant architecture. *Network performance is related to cable quality when using 2-wire technology. Moxa’s ioPAC 8600 programmable controllers allow programmers to rapidly configure services (SNMP, Modbus RTU/TCP, E-mail alarm service, etc.) without writing any programs. The ioPAC can reduce the configuration of massively distributed deployments to a few simple mouse clicks, greatly increasing an engineer’s productivity. 2-Wire Ethernet Technology Ready-to-Run Service Moxa’s Automatic Carriage Sequencing technology quickly and automatically resets the train car sequence, without disrupting network transmissions within the train. This technology greatly reduces the operation effort required for trains that frequently rearrange consists. Onboard passenger information systems can also adjust immediately when changes are made. Automatic Carriage Sequencing (ACS) 61131-3 programming languages and ready-to-run services, including Modbus TCP/RTU, SNMP, data logging, and email alarms to fulfill different customers’ requirements. With active tag and MX-AOPC data integration software, the ioPAC 8600 series provides a comprehensive solution for data acquisition and control applications in harsh environments.
