You just install this module into a module of JW20H/30H/300 or JW50H/70H/100H series. Now you can make data exchange with a host computer in the Ethernet or LAN.

Supports protocols of TCP/IP and UDP/IP.
Provided with same types of instructions as our PLC computer link function. You can gain access to PLCs from the host computer.
Enables 2-layer data communications from the host computer in the Ethernet with PLCs in a satellite net.
Supports an interface of 10BASE5/T. (JW-51CM)
Contains independent 8 ports each of which can create connection.
Enables communications between PLCs by its SEND/RECEIVE instructions.
Offers a subnet mask routing function. Compatible with large scale networks using routers.
* The Ethernet is a XEROX's trademark.
