  • Provides full C library functions for:
    • I-8000 I-87K I/O
    • 7-segment LED display
    • RTC (real time clock)
    • EEPROM
    • and more!
  • Firmware can be updated via the RS-232 port
  • XServer architecture greatly simplifies programming of TCP/IP protocol
  • Supports "VxComm" capabilities for all COM ports (RS-232 and Ethernet)
  • Provides a hardware serial number or an ASICKey to protect designated systems.
  • Compact I/O Expansion slots allow quick installation of I/O modules

Modbus Master Protocol Up to 2 COM ports (COM1, 3, 4, or COM5 if multi-serial port boards are plugged) support Modbus master protocol to connect to other Modbus slave devices
Remote I/O One of COM3 or COM4 supports I-7000 I/O modules & (I-87K base + I-87K serial I/O boards or RU-87P1/2/4/8 + I-87K High Profile I/O cards) as Remote I/O. Max 64 Remote I/O modules for one controller.
Fbus Built-in COM3 Port to exchange data between ICP DAS USA's ISaGRAF PACs
SMS: Short Message Service
One of COM4 of COM5 can link to a GSM modem to support SMS. User can request data/controller by cellular phone. The controller can also send data & alarms to user's cellular phone. Optional GSM modems: GTM-201-RS-232 (850/900/1800/1900 GSM/GPRS External Modem).
User-defined Protocol
