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.

“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.”
