Simple connectivity

The system features three key components that work together to ensure easy connectivity and efficient operation:

  1. A dual Gigabit LAN interface offers increased bandwidth and supports a higher number of channels for enhanced data transfer capabilities.

  2. Precision Time Protocol version 2 (PTPv2) synchronization between devices ensures accurate timing across all connected equipment.

  3. Active Power over Ethernet (PoE) provides a standardized power supply, allowing devices to be easily linked in a daisy chain.

Together, these features allow for a simplified setup where only one cable is needed for data transfer, power supply, and synchronization.

Hassle-free setup and interconnectivity with other devices

The new X-line of data acquisition devices from Dewesoft, including the IOLITE® X, SIRIUS® X, SIRIUS® XHS, and OBSIDIAN®, embody our consistent design philosophy: simplicity and interconnectivity.

These devices are not only designed to connect and synchronize with each other easily, but also to seamlessly integrate into your existing data acquisition setup, providing reassurance about their compatibility.

This feature allows you to expand and tailor your data acquisition system seamlessly. Furthermore, utilizing our DS-LAN network switches with PTP-sync-enabled will enable you to distribute your devices effortlessly, ensuring a hassle-free setup.

Perfect for industrial and production applications with DIN-rail fitting

The IOLITE X modules are designed with compatibility and ease of installation in mind, fitting perfectly onto standard industrial DIN rails. This compatibility makes them ideal for integration into industrial cabinets, where they can be mounted alongside PLCs and similar devices with ease. The IOLITE X chassis features a simple clip-in mechanism, ensuring secure mounting to all standard industrial DIN rail mounts without hassle.

Connection of these modules is straightforward, thanks to the use of RJ45 connectors. This choice allows for easy linking of modules while also keeping costs down by utilizing standard, affordable Ethernet cables.
