Application for the Web-IO Digital:
Connecting Web-IO Digital to the network
There are various ways to connect your Web-IO Digital to the network:
- Connecting to a local network
- Adding to a wireless LAN
- Connecting to the internet
Connection to a local network
To connect to an Ethernet LAN, all you need is a free port on a switch or hub. All Web-IOs support both 100BaseT and 10BaseT, with automatic detection of the network speed.
Web-IO model #57737 is PoE-capable and can be powered over the network when connected to a PoE switch. An external voltage supply is then not permitted.
Additional information about PoE can be found on our Topics page: "PoE - Power over Ethernet".
Incorporating into a wireless LAN
The W&T Web-IOs come shipped with a cable-connected Ethernet port for network access. A wireless LAN client bridge or a wireless access point can be used to easily incorporate Web-IOs into existing WLANs. This makes it easy to implement wireless remote control and monitoring. Additional information about WLAN integration can be found here.
Connecting Web-IO to the Internet using DSL
More and more applications are being run across different locations. Since the connected locations today almost always have a DSL internet connection, it makes sense to use this method for applications in building technology and automation technology. Detailed information about this can be found here.
