The EGX300 is an Ethernet-based device providing a transparent interface between Ethernet-based networks and field devices. Field devices include meters, monitors, protective relays, PLCs, trip units, motor controls, and other devices that communicate using Modbus, JBUS, or PowerLogic protocol.
The EGX300 uses Modbus TCP/IP protocol to access field device information across a local area network (LAN) or a wide area network (WAN). This capability allows the use of monitoring software to access information from devices for data collection, trending, alarm/event management, analysis, and other functions.
The EGX300 supports real-time data reporting to many common device types providing several device specific features such as on-board device and circuit summary pages, as well as on-board data logging.
