The E1 and E2 brain boards are Ethernet-ready I/O and communication processors for digital and analog I/O systems. Designed as drop-in replacements for Opto 22's serial-based B1 and B2 brain boards, the E1 and E2 support both serial and Ethernet networking and multiple simultaneous protocols, including Optomux, OptoMMP, and Modbus/TCP.

This overview describes the system capabilities of the E1 and E2 and illustrates methods for migrating existing Optomux systems to use Ethernet networking, while preserving existing I/O racks, modules, and field wiring.
