Fully Automate Your Remote Equipment with
Real-time Event Management and Reporting
IntelliBox®-I/O 2100 is a breakthrough in truly automated control of
remote equipment. Powered by Lantronix EventTrak™ technology,
this highly-advanced, programmable device server connects your
equipment to an IP network and monitors it to watch for events at
specified intervals. When an event occurs, IntelliBox automatically
sends pre-determined, user-defined command(s) to the equipment
causing it to take appropriate and/or corrective actions – without
any user intervention. IntelliBox can send email notification that
the event was detected and handled accordingly.
True Autonomous Control with EventTrak
IntelliBox proactively monitors and controls remote digital I/O, dry
contact (relay) and RS232/422/485-based equipment. With built-in
EventTrak technology, IntelliBox can be set to query an attached
device at timed intervals then, depending on the results, take prespecified action(s). In addition to monitoring a serial line the IntelliBox
can also monitor digital I/O. Fluid-level monitoring is a simple example –
if IntelliBox notices a digital float sensor drop to a ‘low level,’
it can trigger a relay to start the fluid pump. When the level is
restored the relay is triggered to stop the pump. IntelliBox sends
an email to the user notifying them of the situation and the
actions taken. Instead of reacting to an event or problem, users
are proactively notified that an event occurred and the appropriate
response automatically took place. This also enables users to control
networked equipment directly through the serial or I/O port rather
than depending on a PLC or SCADA server. In some instances, several
events should occur before action is taken. EventTrak allows “Chain
Definitions” (series of events/ actions) to be defined. They can be
saved, stored and transferred from one IntelliBox to another, providing
a great deal of flexibility for large-scale deployment.
IntelliBox is ideal for alarms, fluid pumps, motor drives, lights, fans,
phone systems, access/control/alarm panels, HVAC equipment, PLC’s,
projectors, security cameras, proximity readers, card readers, etc.
Automated Reporting
IntelliBox consolidates the task of monitoring/reporting on multiple
pieces of equipment. Rather than query and review the output of each
device separately, users can configure the IntelliBox to query attached
equipment at configurable intervals and gather the returned data.
Incoming data can be sent via email or RSS feed, allowing hundreds
of devices to be monitored from one RSS-enabled web page.
Incoming data can be scanned for specific information. When it is
detected, IntelliBox can send an email flagged as “Important” along
with the data and take corrective action if needed.
Enterprise-grade Security and
Data Center Standards
Equipped with the Lantronix Evolution OS™ networking operating system,
IntelliBox delivers enterprise-grade level networking security with built-in
SSH/SSL support. The hardened OS and mature protocol stack are
resilient to denial of service (DoS) and port mapping attacks and prevent
it from being used to bring down other networked devices. Evolution OS
uses familiar data-center standards such as a Cisco-like command line
interface (CLI) very similar to that used by routers and hubs, simplifying
configuration and enterprise network integration. It also incorporates
XML – a standard tool for web services, data transfer and rich content
management that encapsulates
data into a text-based format.
Powerful and Rugged
IntelliBox is equipped with isolated serial, I/O and Ethernet ports and
screw terminal connectors for serial, I/O, relay and power. It supports
Modbus TCP, Modbus ASCII and Modbus RTU and is FM-approved for
hazardous locations Class 1, Div. 2. IntelliBox also features 15KV serial
port ESD protection which protects the IntelliBox from electrical
overstress; ESD-protected I/O channels (independent and optically
isolated); wide -40°–75°C operational temperature range; and flexible
power with 9-30 VDC and 9-24 VAC input range.
IntelliBox can act as a Modbus TCP slave, enabling Modbus TCP
masters to monitor the status of digital inputs and set the digital
outputs and relays. It can also be used as a “Modbus bridge”
(Modbus TCP to Modbus RTU/ASCII protocol converter) enabling
users to connect RS232/RS485 Modbus RTU/ASCII devices to
their Ethernet network to be controlled by Modbus TCP
masters (PLCs, OPC servers, SCADA software, etc).
