The 460ESUSB moves data between up to 2 USB devices like barcode scanners and printers and an EtherNet/IP Scanner device. It’s the perfect tool to tie your USB devices to your EtherNet/IP control system. Best of all the product is Made in the USA, is always in stock and comes with 5 year warranty.
Incoming ASCII data from a USB device is mapped directly to your EtherNet/IP Scanner device. You set how often the gateway updates the data in the Controller. This update is cyclic, not event based. For event based processing, like most barcode scans, you can map an additional counter that increments whenever a successful message is received from the USB device.
If your device uses delimiters, the 460ESUSB can be configured to automatically remove the delimiters, no need to deal with the delimiters in your Scanner. If you need to parse your data, the 460ESUSB can parse a string of ASCII data in up to 50 segments by delimiter or offset.
While there are certainly other companies offering protocol 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. Try the RTA difference today.
“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.”
