Map Your Legacy PLC Data Tables Into EtherNet/IP Adapter I/O With the 460ESDFM
You can now make your legacy serial PLCs look like an EtherNet/IP Adapter! Any of your old, serial PLCs like the PLC5, SLC, or MicroLogix can now provide cyclic data to an EtherNet/IP Scanner.
It’s the perfect tool to keep those old legacy PLCs from the scrap pile and extend their useful life.
How Do I Use the 460ESDFM in My Application?
For most applications, 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.
You don’t have to implement any message instructions or ladder logic in the legacy 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.”
