Get EtherNet/IP Adapter devices into a DeviceNet PLC

The perfect tool to connect EtherNet/IP devices to legacy DeviceNet PLC’s





The Smart Way To Move EtherNet/IP Device Data to a DeviceNet Controller
The 460ECDS is the perfect tool to connect up to 32 EtherNet/IP adapter devices to a DeviceNet PLC. Get the all the latest EtherNet/IP enabled devices to work with your Legacy DeviceNet PLC’s.

How Does the 460ECDS Work?
Up to 240 bytes of data can be mapped to and from DeviceNet to up to 32 different EtherNet/IP devices. The data mapping from DeviceNet to EtherNet/IP is transparent. Data from one protocol will be represent in the same fashion on the other protocol

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 3 mathematic functions. Add 4 to a value, multiply by 4 and divide by 10 with ease. 

Configure Your Data Transfer from a Web Page
All the data transfer is configurable using the embedded web server. This is the quickest, easiest way of exchanging data between a DeviceNet Master and EtherNet/IP Adapters. You define the I/O data that gets transferred and you pick where it should end up in the DeviceNet Master. There is no software to download or code to futz with. It sounds simple, and it is– that’s the point!

Why Use Real Time Automation as a Gateway Supplier?
The 460ECDS provides an option to connect EtherNet/IP Adapter devices to your DeviceNet network. 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.

What our Customers are Saying

“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!"”

Eric P. / Kendall Electric

“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.”
