The 460ESTCP allows you to move ASCII data inside TCP/IP packets to an EtherNet/IP PLC. It’s a simple solution that allows you to pass TCP socket connection data to an EtherNet/IP PLC. It allows you to interpret the ASCII data strings into meaningful data types for use in your PLC.
Up to 480 bytes of data can be mapped in each direction between EtherNet/IP and up to 10 Ethernet TCP/IP devices. Data coming from the TCP/IP device(s) can be parsed into up to 50 segments. Each segment can be assigned a data type and delivered to a user defined data location on EtherNet/IP. Data location on EtherNet/IP can be concatenated into a single string of data and deliver to your TCP/IP device.
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.
The 460ESTCP provides an option to access Ethernet TCP/IP devices with your EtherNet/IP PLC. 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.”
