Controller - ILC 2050 BI

Modular Inline controller for automation applications in the fields of building technology, infrastructure, and energy technology. Equipped with two logically separated IP address interfaces each with 2 integrated Fast Ethernet ports. Configurable assignment of the Ethernet ports for the use of the spanning-tree protocol, daisy chain and redundant ring structures for maximum availability. Four LAN, two USB, and two RS-485 interfaces are integrated. The data point connections can be extended with up to 63 Inline I/O modules: digital and analog, function terminals for DALI, pulse counting, MBUS or serial interfaces.


Product Details

The ILC 2050 BI is the central controller for automation of buildings, infrastructure, and energy. The industrial design guarantees a high level of reliability and therefore makes the ILC 2050 BI suitable for business-critical applications. It is equipped with four LAN, two USB and two RS-485 interfaces. The controller can be extended with numerous Inline modules for digital and analog I/Os and for all standard bus systems. The corresponding drivers ensure uniform interfaces, thus greatly simplifying system integration.
