PCI Express EtherNet/IP Card

High-temperature network card for PCI Express

The high temp PCI Express card with DLR support for EtherNet/IP was specifically designed for use in Allen-Bradley 6181 Integrated Industrial Computers with PCI Express (PCIe) bus slots.  It can also be used in any PCI Express based computer. The PCI Express ETAP has EtherNet/IP with DLR and supports linear, star and ring topologies.  If you have previously used a 1783-ETAP off an EtherNet/IP port, you can now connect directly to the Ethernet connections on the PCI Express ETAP for your EIP connections.
