Communication Gateway Module

The ICM8 Communication Gateway module implements online data monitoring of temperature controllers and PAX Series Panel Meters.

The ICM8 has RS-232 and RS-485 serial ports and a 10 Base-T/100 Ethernet port instead of proprietary COMMS cards. The module allows monitoring multiple disparate devices, and performs conversions of numerous protocols simultaneously by way of built-in drivers. This allows easy data mapping to PLCs, PCs, and Scada systems. The module is programmed using Windows-compatible free software, which can be downloaded from
