The OMEGA iSeries devices connect directly to an Ethernet network with a standard RJ-45 connector and can send and receive data in standard TCP/IP packets. The OMEGA devices can serve web pages over an Ethernet LAN or even over the Internet, making it possible to monitor and control a process through a web browser from anywhere in the facility or anywhere in the world. The iSeries controller can send an e-mail to the engineer alerting him to an alarm condition or updating the status. These instruments are stand-alone Internet appliances, meaning both the Ethernet and web-server capability are embedded in the device.
