Get Your USB Barcode Scanners Connected Directly to Your EtherNet/IP Adapter Devices
The 460ECUSB moves data between up to 2 USB devices like barcode scanners and up to 32 EtherNet/IP Adapter devices. It’s the perfect tool to tie your USB devices to your EtherNet/IP Adapters. Perfect for printers and barcode scanners.
How Do I Use 460ECUSB in My Application?
Incoming ASCII data from a USB device is mapped directly to your EtherNet/IP Adapter devices. You set how often the gateway updates the data to the Adapters. This update is cyclic, not event based. For event based processing, like most barcode scans, you can map an additional counter that increments whenever a successful message is received from the USB device.
If your device uses delimiters, the 460ECUSB can be configured to automatically remove the delimiters, no need to deal with the delimiters in your Adapters. If you need to parse your data, the 460ECUSB can parse a string of ASCII data in up to 50 segments by delimiter or offset.
