Ethernet Based Allen-Bradley PLC to DH+ Gateway

Now you can easily connect up to five Allen-Bradley PLCs with as many as 32 DH+ devices. Link up any Ethernet based Allen-Bradley PLC to a DH+ gateway.





Easily Connect Data Tables in Your Legacy PLC to tags in Logix Processors

There is no easier way to transfer data between any of your Ethernet-based Allen-Bradley PLCs and legacy serial Allen-Bradley PLCs! PLC5 or SLC5/04 can now provide inputs to a Logix processor and get outputs from a Logix processor. It’s the perfect tool to keep those old legacy PLCs from the scrap pile and extend their useful life.

How Do I Use the 460ETCDHM-D2E in My Application?

For most applications, the mapping is very straightforward. PLC file locations (like N7:200 and F9:1) are mapped directly to tags in your Logix processor. No message instructions and no ladder is need to transfer the data. The gateway pushes and pulls the data from defined file and tag blocks. It really is that simple.

What our Customers are Saying

“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!"”

Eric P. / Kendall Electric

“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.”
