Get your EtherNet/IP Adapters Connected Directly to the Data Table of your MicroLogix PLC
The 460ECETC moves data between up to 32 EtherNet/IP Adapter devices and up to 5 PLC5E.
Have a MicroLogix PLC that doesn’t support Ethernet/IP? Move data from your EtherNet/IP Adapter devices to low-level legacy Allen-Bradley PLCs like the Micrologix, SLC 505, and PLC5E.
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 MicroLogix PLC?
You allocate two areas of register blocks in your MicroLogix PLC. One area is a user-defined set of write only registers accepting data from your EtherNet/IP devices. The other area is full of read-only register blocks to send data to your EtherNet/IP devices. You directly map EtherNet/IP data into read and write locations in the data table of your MicroLogix 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.
Why Use Real Time Automation as a Gateway Supplier?
The 460ECETC provides an option to access EtherNet/IP Adapter 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.
