The GS-EDRV100 adapter provides an Ethernet connection between a control system and AutomationDirect's GS/DURApulse series of AC drives. The control system can be any of the following:
The GS-EDRV100 is DIN rail mounted devices (mounting hardware provided). The user provides a 10/100Mb Ethernet connection to the GS-EDRV100, then uses the provided serial cable to connect the adapter to the AC drive's programming port.
One GS-EDRV100 adapter is required for each GS Series AC drive.
The adapter provides communications watchdog timeout indications for both the
serial and the Ethernet interfaces.
Obsolete - replacement is GS-EDRV100
