Product Description

Connect Serial Barcode Scanners, Printers and Scales to DF1 Based Allen-Bradley PLCs
Connect any ASCII based serial device to your legacy PLCs like the PLC5, SLC, or MicroLogix.

It’s the perfect tool to keep those old legacy PLCs and ASCII serial devices from the scrap pile by extending their useful life.

How Do I Use the 460ADFM in My Application?
Incoming and outgoing ASCII data in is parsed into data segments and given a
data type. Those values are then mapped to mating file locations in the DF1
devices like N7: 200 or F9:1.

It’s really is that simple.

Why Use Real Time Automation as a Gateway Supplier?
While there are certainly a number of other companies offering 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. 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.
