The EA-ECOM communication expansion module provides Ethernet capability to the C-more Micro line of operator interfaces. Designed for all of the newer EA3-series of 6", 8" or 10" C-more Micro panels, the EA-ECOM adds an Ethernet (RJ45) port for programming and PLC communications at 10/100 Mbps. The module attaches to the rear of the EA3-series panel and requires no external power. The EA-ECOM module provides faster project download and firmware update speeds and supports multiple connections to multiple PLCs and protocols. The Ethernet port supports automatic MDI/MDI-X crossover detection for plug and play capability and allowing crossover or straight-through CAT5 cables to be connected. The EA-ECOM communication module is $50.00. Software and firmware version 4.0 or later is required.
