Inverters with Ethernet connectivity
Hitachi America, Ltd., Power and Industrial Div., announces the SJ-EN Ethernet option board that provides the SJ300 and L300P families of AC inverters with a high-performance, easy-to-use Ethernet interface.
The board installs in one of the inverter’s two internal option board expansion slots and connects to the user’s network by means of a standard RJ45 connector. The SJ-EN implements the widely-accepted MODBUS/TCP protocol for maximum versatility. It incorporates six LEDs to monitor board status and activity and an 8-position DIP-switch for setting the node address. No special software or hardware is required.
