Download Datasheet


ioLogik 2500 smart Ethernet remote I/O devices feature unique hardware and software designs, making them ideal solutions for a variety of industrial data acquisition applications. The ioLogik 2500’s hardware design includes a 4-port unmanaged Ethernet switch and 2 serial ports, enabling it to seamlessly connect to a variety of field devices.

One of the Ethernet ports can be used to link to 8 daisy-chained ioLogik E1200 expansion modules to provide more than 100 channels. The ioLogik 2500 acts as the “head” unit, with Click&Go Plus logic used to control the entire I/O array. Most importantly, a single IP is all that is required to connect the entire I/O array to your network, providing the perfect solution for industrial field sites that have an insufficient number of IP addresses.

Programming-Free Click&Go Plus™ Logic

Click&Go Plus™ control logic supports up to 48 rules and 8 conditions/actions. In addition, its graphical user interface provides 3 logic gates and 3 multi-layers, helping you build more powerful and efficient IO solutions. Once you finish setting up your Click&Go Plus™ logic rules, IOxpress’s easy-to-use simulation function can be used to find potential errors in your Click&Go Plus™ rules before uploading them to your online devices.

Multi-Protocol Data Concentrator

By supporting multiple protocols, the ioLogik 2500 improves the efficiency of collecting field-site data and then sending it to upper-level systems. For field-site data collection, an ioLogik 2500 can collect data from other third-party devices via both Modbus TCP and Modbus RTU, and also lets you link up to 8 ioLogik E1200 modules to create a versatile I/O array with over 100 different I/O channels, allowing all field-site data to be accessed by upper-level systems. For the upper-level systems, the ioLogik 2500 supports Modbus TCP, SNMP, SNMP Trap, RESTful API, Active OPC tag, and C++ library for easy integration with various IT/OT systems, making the ioLogik 2500 the perfect data concentrator for connecting field sites to your network.

Data Completeness with Local Storage Data Logging

The ioLogik 2500 supports microSD cards, turning it into a powerful data logger for storing valuable data. Important data from field sites can be accessed remotely by different systems via an FTP, and the ioLogik’s data completeness function enables real-time monitoring of data through MX-AOPC UA Suite when the network goes down unexpectedly.

Remote Access Cellular I/O via Cellular Network

Most carriers provide dynamic and private IP address SIM cards, and although private IP cards are cheaper, they cannot be used to provide direct access to the cloud. Moxa’s Cellular Data Access software enables this type of connection by establishing a special data route between the cellular models and the cloud.

Only one public IP address is needed to use Moxa’s Cellular Data Access software, allowing you to easily update internal register values, change output channel status, and modify the configurations of devices connected to the device, all through the cloud.


microSD Slot Up to 32 GB (SD 2.0 compatible)
Note: For units operating in extreme temperatures, industrial-grade, wide-temperature microSD cards are required.
