E1 and E2 boards are Ethernet-ready I/O and communication processors for digital and analog I/O-systems. These versions of company's Optomux family of Brain Boards are designed to migrate existing Optomux installations to faster networks, high performance, and more communication options. E1 is designed to upgrade the B1 Brain Board for digital I/O systems, connecting to a rack of Opto 22 G1, G4, or Quad Pak digital I/O modules. E2 connects to a rack of Opto 22 G1 analog I/O modules, as it intended for analog I/O systems as an upgrade for the B2 Brain Board.

New boards offer 10/100 Mbps Ethernet and RS-422/485 serial networking and support multiple protocols simultaneously. They also support OptoMMP (memory-map protocol used with newer Opto 22 SNAP Ethernet systems), Optomux protocol over Ethernet, OPC through OptoOPCServer, and Modbus/TCP.
