Take a quick overview

Modular Analog/Digital I/O Module of the Gateway Family
eXIO-M100 has been developed with a modular structure that can be integrated into different projects in terms of hardware.
  • Modular Design
  • Media Support
  • EtherCAT
  • Network Topologies
  • Compatibility

Modular Design

There are 4 slots on the main board to integrate 4 different types of analog/digital I/O boards:
Analog Input Board
• 4 differential or 8 single-ended ±10 V voltage inputs
• 4 single-ended 0-20 mA current inputs
Analog Output Board
• 4 or 8 configurable current or voltage analog outputs
Digital Input Board
• Consisting 8 wide-range digital inputs
Digital Output Board
• Consisting 8 dry contact relay outputs

Media Support

2 ports 10/100BaseTx copper Ethernet supported for regular applications.
2 ports 10/100BaseFx fiber optic interface via SFP module connection supported for long distance communication or the environments with high EMI noise.


2 ports EtherCAT Slave connection for data exchange.
All inputs and outputs are directly drived by the CPU which is only dedicated to EtherCAT slave controller ASIC, which allows very high speed data exchange with the main controller units such as eRTU-X101.
Thanks to EtherCAT protocol, I/Os can be accessed from the master unit in microseconds, even when hundreds of devices are connected on the bus.

Network topologies

Wide range of network topologies can be supported according to the requirements of the application.


eXIO-M100 can be used fully compatible with other products from EtherCAT bus family:
• eRTU-X100 / eRTU-X101
• eXIO-D100
• eCVM-P100
