Get Your DeviceNet Slave I/O On EtherNet/IP
The 460ESDM allows you to connect up to 32 DeviceNet slaves to an EtherNet/IP Scanner like a PLC or HMI. It’s the perfect tool to get your legacy DeviceNet devices linked into your new EtherNet/IP based control systems.
How Does the 460ESDM Work?
Up to 480 bytes of data can be mapped to and from your EtherNet/IP systems. The data structures are a 1 to 1 mapping between DeviceNet and Ethernet/IP. You define what data points you will read and write from each DeviceNet slave and the gateway will automatically create a data mapping on to EtherNet/IP.
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.
Why Use Real Time Automation as a Gateway Supplier?
The 460ESDM provides an option to connect a network of DeviceNet Slave devices to your EtherNet/IP 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.
