The IFX-21 communications module is a smart device for re-transmission, monitoring, and breakout of EXACTUS® pyrometer communication in various customer applications. It continuously buffers the pyrometer's output and makes the readings available to various isolated ports and protocols, including user defined passive 4-20mA analog output.
The IFX-21 is DIN rail mountable with various communication ports including: two analog output ports, a pyrometer communication port, a USB mini-B PC service port, a TIA 485-A (RS485) port, and two ethernet TCP/IP switched ports.
In addition to the large number of wired communication options, the IFX-21 has a 5-character LED display that can output process temperature readings. It also has two LEDs for power and error status.
