Get your Modbus RTU Slave Devices Connected Directly to the Data Table of your FlexLogix PLC
The 460ETCMM moves data between up to 32 Modbus RTU Slave devices and up to 5 different Allen-Bradley PLC’s. It’s the perfect tool to help save legacy Modbus RTU devices from the scrap pile and also allows you to use the plethora of Modbus RTU devices available in your FlexLogix PLC architectures.
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?
You allocate two areas of tags or register blocks in your FlexLogix PLC. One area is a user defined set of write only tags or register blocks accepting data from your Modbus RTU devices. The other area is full of read only tags or register blocks to send data to your Modbus RTU devices. You directly map Modbus RTU register and coil data into read and write locations in the data table of your FlexLogix PLC.
It’s really that simple. Need to modify your data as it passes from one protocol to the other? No problem. Each data mapping you apply can be modified with up to 3 mathematic functions. Add 4 to a value, multiply by 4 and divide by 10 with ease.
It’s really that simple.
Why Use Real Time Automation as a Gateway Supplier?
The 460ETCMM provides an option to access Modbus RTU Slave devices without having to upgrade your PLC or get an expensive in rack solution. While there are certainly a number of other companies offering stand alone gateways, there is no one who provides the level of support and service that you receive from RTA.
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
