Ethernet remote I/O

Schneider Electric's Modicon Quantum Ethernet Remote I/O brings determinism to critical industrial processes that require precise control. The network architecture is a self-healing daisy chain loop that can recover from one break in the network in 50 ms or less. If the remote I/O racks are no farther than 100m from their neighboring devices, Ethernet switches are not required, reducing the investment required to implement the solution. Using Ethernet for remote I/O communications eliminates proprietary networks and the additional time and resources required to maintain them.
