Get Your Profinet Controller Connected Directly to the Data Table of an Allen-Bradley PLC

The 460ETCPS moves data between a Profinet Controller device and 1-5 Allen-Bradley PLCs. It’s the perfect tool to help integrate Siemens controllers and Allen-Bradley PLCs.

Best of all the product is Made in the USA, is always in stock and comes with 5 year warranty.

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 slot data from your Profinet controller. The other area is full of read only tags or register blocks to send data to slots in your Profinet controller. You directly map up to 10 Profinet slots of up to 1280 bytes in and out of 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.

Why Use Real Time Automation as a Gateway Supplier?

The 460ETCPS provides an option to access a Profinet Controller device without having to upgrade your Allen-Bradley PLC or get 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. Try the RTA difference today!

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.”
