The H2-ERM100 Ethernet Remote Master (ERM) provides a Ethernet Remote I/O link for DL205 series and DL405 series modules and Do-more PLC systems. The H2-EBC100 Ethernet Base Controller supports the 10/100BaseT (twisted pair, copper wire) Ethernet standard.
The H2-ERM100 Ethernet Remote Master connects the Master controller PLC to the ethernet remote slave modules. Each ERM module can support up to sixteen I/O slaves when used in DL205 series or DL405 series or Do-more PLC systems.
The front of the H2-ERM100 Ethernet Remote Master provides status indicators.
STATUS The H2-ERM100 is powered and functional.
LINKGD When green, the module is properly connected to the network.
ACTIVE Red or flashing red indicates active network data.
ERROR When red, or flashing red, a fatal error has occurred.
100MBIT When green, Ethernet data is detected at 100BaseT frequency.
The operating temperature is 32° to 140° F (0° to 60° C). The link distance is 100 meters (328 feet). The quantity of I/O slave is 16 maximum.
You must use the ERM Workbench software utility to configure the ERM.
The NetEdit3 software utility can be used to set network identifiers (Module ID or IP Address).
You can also assign a module ID using the DIP switches on the module. Use the DIP switches if you want the ability to install or change modules without using a laptop, desktop, or other device to set the Module ID.
To assign the slave module ID, you can use the dip switches on the module, use the Netedit software tool that is included in the ERM Workbench software tool.
