Product Description

The H2-EBC100 model is part of the DirectLogic 205 series. The module was produced by Automation Direct as an Ethernet Base Control (EBC) module. This model is one of three EBC units and is the only module with 10/100BaseT Ethernet communication. The other two EBC modules are 10BaseT Ethernet and 10BaseFL Ethernet communication controllers. The H2-EBC100 module is often used to provide high-performance Ethernet links between the DL205 Input-Output Module and a PC-based control system or WinPLC/DL205/DL405 CPUs at a low cost through an H-ERM module to help with remote I/O communications. This module can connect the Dl205 I/O to a Modbus TCP/IP master device. 

There are numerous specifications on the H2-EBC100 modules, such as serial ports/protocols, power consumption, link distance, data transfer rate, and Ethernet ports/protocols. The data transfer rate on this unit is 100 Mbps, with the Ethernet ports/protocols RJ45, Modbus TCP/IP, HTML configuration, DHCP, IPX, and TCP/IP ports. The typical power consumption on this module is 350 mA. The link distance of the H2-EBC100 module is 100 meters or 328 feet. The serial ports/protocols on this unit are Modbus RTU, K-Sequence, RJ12m, and ASCII In/Out. For differences and similarities between the remaining Ethernet base controllers refer to the attached Ethernet base controllers modules datasheet. 

On the H2-EBC100 module, there are eight individual switches, with only six of the switches being active. For information on the values of these switches refer to the Ethernet Base Controller manual H24-EBC-M, which has more information regarding the installation and setup of the controllers. 

Frequently Asked Questions about H2-EBC100

What is the H2-EBC100 unit?

The H2-EBC100 unit is a 10/100BaseT Ethernet controller used primarily with Automation Direct DirectLogic 205 series. The H2-EBC100 model can also be used with DirectLogic 405 base modules.

Are there different power specifications on the H2-EBC100 module depending on what base is used?

All of the power specifications on the DL205 base models are the same no matter which base type will be used; when a 5V current supply is on the base, the power specification is 2600 mA. The power specification of bases supplied with an auxiliary 24 VDC current supplied the power will be 300 mA. 

Reviews For H2-EBC100

Internal Review

The H2-EBC100 module can be inserted into any available CPU slot of a DirectLogic 205 base module. While the module will connect to a DL205 model none of the wiring will be connected directly to the H2-EBC100 unit making it much easier to remove if the module malfunctions and needs to be replaced. - AX Control Tech
