Quick Link QL500
The QL500 is an active connection module which can be used in Standalone or ID-NET™ Master Multidata, or Master Synchronized layouts. It provides separate ports for Power Supply, External Trigger, Digital I/O and Communication. Host communication is provided through the integrated Ethernet module which connects internally to the reader's Main serial interface. Reader Aux RS232 serial interface is also provided.
ID-NET™ network and power supply signals are sent out to the next connected device by means of a dedicated port, however there is no network input connector and therefore it cannot be used as an ID-NET™ Slave.
Starting from software release 2.02.01 the QL500 also supports complete Backup & Restore functionality (Configuration and Environmental parameter storage) for network, Master and up to 9 Slave devices.
