Ethernet I/O Event Notification to a TCP/IP Application

Custom TCP/IP applications can be created to receive digital events from remote digital inputs such as alarms and contact closures. These applications can then record, notify and react to the digital event notification accordingly.

The Digital I/O extension feature’s event driven notification message is a simple 20 byte format enabling programmers to quickly develop an interface to remote IOLAN Ethernet I/O Device Servers.
