How Do I Use the 460ECES-N34 in My Application?
Why do a I need a gateway to connect EtherNet/IP Adapters to a Scanner? 99% of the time the answer is you don’t. The 460ECES is designed for those 1% of times when you have to manipulate your data, slow down the flow of data or allow a Scanner to handle more Adapters than it supports.
Need to scale your data or manipulate it with other math functions? Do you have a Scanner overwhelming the processor of your Adapter device? Do you have too many devices connected to your Scanner? The 460ECES allows you to add scaling to any data, apply simple math operations, add alarming and control the request speeds of your Adapter devices. It can also concatenate multiple Adapter devices into 1 device allowing your Scanner to communicate with more devices.

“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.”
