Connect EtherNet/IP Adapters to a Profinet IO Controller
The 460ECPS moves data between up to 32 EtherNet/IP Adapters and a Profinet IO Controller. It’s the perfect tool to connect EtherNet/IP devices into your Profinet controller.
Best of all the product is Made in the USA, is always in stock and comes with 5 year warranty.
How Do You Map the Data?
EtherNet/IP data will be mapped into 10 Profinet IO slots. Each slot will be assigned a type of Int8, int16, int32, int64, Uint8, Uint16, Uint32, Uint64, float, double, binary8, binary16, binary32, or Short String. The slot can consist of up to 128 bytes of data from your Ethernet/IP Adapter devices.
When writing from your Profinet IO Controller to your EtherNet/IP Adapter, there will be up to 10 slots each defined by the same types. Data in those slots can be mapped to your EtherNet/IP devices.
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.
Why Use Real Time Automation as a Gateway Supplier?
The 460ECPS provides an option to connect EtherNet/IP Adapters to a Profinet IO Controller. 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.
