Get your Profinet Client Directly to the Data Table of a FlexLogix PLC
The 460ETCTCP allows you to move ASCII data inside TCP/IP packets to a FlexLogix PLC. It’s a simple solution that allows you to pass TCP socket connection data easily to a FlexLogix PLC. It allows you to Interpret the ASCII data strings into meaningful data types for before being deliver to the PLC.
Best of all the product is Made in the USA, is always in stock and comes with 5 year warranty.
How Does the Data Move In and Out of the FlexLogix PLC?
Incoming and outgoing Ethernet TCP/IP data is mapped to and from user defined Tags or Registers in the data table of your FlexLogix PLC. You allocate two areas of tags or register blocks in your Allen-Bradley PLC. One area is a user defined block accepting data from Ethernet TCP/IP data. The other area is a block the gateway reads and passes to the Ethernet TCP/IP device(s).
If your device uses delimiters, the 460ETCTCP can be configured to automatically remove the delimiters on incoming messages and add delimiters back in on outgoing messages. No need to deal with the delimiters in your PLC. If you need to parse your data, the 460ETCTCP can parse a string of Ethernet TCP/IP data in up to 50 segments by delimiter or offset.
It’s designed to be a simple tool to integrate ASCII data into an AB PLC.
Why use Real Time Automation as a Gateway Supplier?
The 460ETCTCP provides an option to access those Ethernet TCP/IP devices that always seem to creep into your architecture no matter how hard you try to keep them out. With the 460ETCTCP you can easily connect to those devices with your FlexLogix PLC.
When you call, a live person answers the phone. When you talk with sales, you will get honest answers and recommendations even if that means recommending someone else’s solution. When you get support, it is from an engineer who had a hand in the product’s development, and support doesn’t require a ticket or 24 hour wait. We are unashamed of the fact that we are a smaller company because that means you mean a lot more to us. Try the RTA difference today
