You can now map all of your legacy serial PLCs data tables over to your web server or client! Any of your old serial PLCs like the PLC5, SLC, or MicroLogix can now provide data to a web server or client.
It’s the perfect tool to keep those old legacy PLCs from the scrap pile.
First, you configure the 460DFMWI using the browser-based configuration pages. You’ll identify the data set to read / write on your DF1 slaves. Once that’s complete, you’ll map, name, and group the data to be presented as XML or JSON files. Your application can issue standard HTTP GET or POST instructions to move data into your application. Up to 1000 data points can be moved in each direction.
No message instructions and no ladder to alter in many cases.
While there are certainly other companies offering protocol 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.
“I challenged a customer to get it working by the time I got back from his break room with a Coke and he indeed had it working when I got back. He then said, "It’s worth twice the price!"”

“Everything seems to be working as we imagined. Thanks for the great response time. I did not see any way to save the configuration other than screen shots, but the configuration did not get lost in the update. Thanks again, and you were a pleasure to work with.”
