The communication module GFX4-ETH1/ETH5 / ETH8 can be installed inside GFX4-GFXTERMO4/GFX4-IR or GFW products and expands communication by means of the Ethernet IP protocol (where the different versions follow the evolution of the stack versions and the Conformance Tests).
The module has two communication channels:
• Ethernet (switch) 2 port
• Modbus Master: allows communication with a maximum of 4 slave devices
