Product Description

The 460ETCDM moves data between 1-5 Allen-Bradley PLCs and up to 32 DeviceNet Slave devices.

With the 460ETCDM you are making a direct connection between DeviceNet data and user defined Tags or Registers in the data table of your Allen-Bradley PLC. There is no polling from the PLC or EtherNet/IP scan lists to arrange. This is a direct connection between your DeviceNet Slave data and the data table of your PLC.

How Does the Data Move In and Out of the PLC?
You allocate two areas of tags or register blocks in your Allen-Bradley PLC. One area is a user defined set of write only tags or register blocks accepting data from DeviceNet. The other area is full of read only tags or register blocks to send data to your DeviceNet Slaves. You directly map DeviceNet data into read and write locations in the data table of your Allen-Bradley PLC.

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.

What Makes it so Simple to Use?
Simply log into your unit using your favorite browser and you are ready to configure the unit. You set the number of DeviceNet Slave devices. You define the I/O data that gets transferred and you pick where it should end up in the PLC. There is no software to download or code to futz with. It sounds simple, and it is, that’s the point.

The 460ECDM is the smart connection solution for moving data from DeviceNet Slave devices to MicroLogix, PLC5E and SLC 505 PLCs. Saving you money and increasing the abilities of the PLCs within your automation processes.

Why Use Real Time Automation as a Gateway Supplier?
The 460ETCDM provides an option to access a DeviceNet system with an Allen-Bradley PLC without an expensive in-rack solution. 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.

Gateway Security

You can configure up to 9 different users access to diagnostic and configuration screens.

Alarming

Set <, <=, >=, >, ==, !=, and Change-of-State rules on any data moving through the gateway. If alarm rule is triggered an email notification can be sent.

Translation Table

Allows for data manipulation during protocol translation. Scaling and other data format changes can occur in the gateway.

Status and Counters

Protocol specific status, counters and error messages are accessible within the gateways diagnostics page. They can also be delivered to a connected device.

Diagnostic Logging Page

Allows users to see and log start up sequences, protocol specific messages & error messages.
