The 460ETCMC moves data between up to 32 Modbus TCP/IP Server devices and up to five different Allen-Bradley PLCs. It’s a simple tool that allows you to use the plethora of cost-effective Modbus TCP/IP devices available in your Allen-Bradley PLCs.
Best of all the product is made in the USA, is always in stock, and comes with a five-year warranty.
You allocate two areas of tags or register blocks in your Allen-Bradley PLC. One area is a user-defined set of write-only tags or register blocks accepting data from your Modbus TCP/IP devices. The other area is full of read-only tags or register blocks to send data to your Modbus TCP/IP devices. You directly map Modbus TCP/IP register and coil data into read and write locations in the data table of your Allen-Bradley 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 three mathematic functions. Add 4 to a value, multiply by 4 and divide by 10 with ease.
The 460ETCMC provides an option to access Modbus TCP/IP Server 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.
"I’m old and I’ve worked with many manufacturers. RTA was the quickest, the most knowledgeable on tech support and the easiest gateway to implement."
