Product Description

Unleash Seamless Protocol to I/O Communication with CIX6535

Our Communication Interface I/O EXtender (CIX) System introduces an industrial-grade wireless solution for protocol to I/O exchange that’s both cost-effective and efficient. Unlike traditional setups with inputs and outputs on both sides of the RF link, the CIX Protocol to I/O system provides a direct connection to Remote I/O locations via your PLC/PAC’s communication protocol, eliminating unnecessary costs and complexities.

Experience Simplified Integration

The CIX Master utilizes Produce/Consume firmware, seamlessly integrating your CIX/PLR Wireless I/O network into a Logix PAC’s I/O tree. No more message writing or I/O mapping – it’s that simple. Our CIX/PLR Protocol Master’s EDS file provides all necessary tags, streamlining integration with just a few clicks. Install the EDS file and, using RSLogix 5000 or Studio 5000, effortlessly add the appropriate module.

Reliable Connectivity, Unmatched Performance

Unlike other devices struggling to maintain EtherNet/IP UDP connections, DATA-LINC’s proprietary “Wireless Protocol to I/O” technique ensures flawless operation. Common issues often associated with “wireless Produce/Consume” are non-existent here.

Elevate your connectivity with CIX6535 – part of the CIX6500 System, your gateway to seamless protocol to I/O interaction. Simplify, integrate, and thrive.
