Map Your Legacy PLC Data Tables Into a DeviceNet Master
You can now make your legacy serial PLCs look like a DeviceNet Slave. Any of your old, serial PLCs like the PLC5, SLC, or MicroLogix can now provide cyclic data to a DeviceNet Master.
It’s the perfect tool to keep those old legacy PLCs from the scrap pile and be useful in a DeviceNet environment.
How Do I Use the 460DSDFM in My Application?
The mapping is very straight forward. PLC data table values like N7:200 and F9:1 are mapped directly into the Input and Output assemblies of the cyclic data transfer.
No special message instructions or ladder logic is required to access the data table of the DF1 PLCs.
It 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.

You can configure up to 9 different users access to diagnostic and configuration screens.
Set <, <=, >=, >, ==, !=, and Change-of-State rules on any data moving through the gateway. If alarm rule is triggered an email notification can be sent.
Allows for data manipulation during protocol translation. Scaling and other data format changes can occur in the gateway.
Status and Counters
Protocol specific status, counters and error messages are accessible within the gateways diagnostics page. They can also be delivered to a connected device.
Diagnostic Logging Page
Allows users to see and log start up sequences, protocol specific messages & error messages.
