By Control Engineering Staff March 7, 2001

Palatine, Ill. -Two new models of Modicon Momentum M1E processor adapter integrate an Ethernet port to network data acquisition, peer-to-peer communications, and I/O scanning. Five embedded web pages, usable with a standard web browser, read status and diagnostic information from the processor, extending Schneider’s Transparent Factory architecture. It has I/O servicing for up to 4,000 messages per sec, logic solve time of 0.25 msec per KB of user logic, and 512-word I/O capacity. Schneider Electric/Square D www.squared.com
