The Smart Way To Move DeviceNet Master Data to an EtherNet/IP Scanner
The 460ESDS moves data between a DeviceNet Master device and an EtherNet/IP Scanner device. It’s the perfect tool to connect Legacy DeviceNet Controllers to your new EtherNet/IP PLCs.
How Do I Use the 460ESDS in My Application?
Up to 240 bytes of data from your EtherNet/IP Scanner will be mapped into your DeviceNet Master. Data will be assigned a type of BIT8, BIT16, BIT32, INT8, INT16, INT32, INT64, UINT8, UINT16, UINT32, UINT64, Float, or Double and will presented to your DeviceNet Master as DeviceNet data. When writing from your DeviceNet Master to your EtherNet/IP Scanner, up to 240 bytes of DeviceNet data will be mapped to up to your EtherNet/IP Scanner as EtherNet/IP data.
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 460ESDS provides an option to connect an EtherNet/IP Scanner device to your DeviceNet 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.

“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.”
