The Smart Way To Move Modbus TCP Data to an EtherNet/IP Client
The 460ESMS connects Modbus TCP Client Devices to EtherNet/IP PLCs. It’s the perfect tool to integrate cost effective Modbus TCP controllers into your EtherNet/IP architecture.
With the 460ESMS you have a device that you can quickly deploy and easily configure to access and integrate these Modbus devices into your EtherNet/IP network.
How Does the 460ESMS Work?
For Most applications the mapping is very straight forward. Modbus Register and Coil data is mapped to EtherNet/IP IO Block. Up to 480 bytes of data can be mapped in each direction between protocols.
It really is 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 460ESMS provides an option to connect a Modbus TCP/IP Client device to an EtherNet/IP Scanner device. 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.”
